#1689 closed volunteer task (fixed)

wrong copyright statement?

Description

The copyright statement at the bottom of the BW pages:

© 2007-2012 BeWelcome

There is no legal entity BeWelcome, so this is probably wrong. A solution would be to change that copyright statement to:

© 2007-2012 by BeVolunteer

or

© 2007-2012 by BeVolunteer and individual contributors.

There should be a link to http://www.bewelcome.org/wiki/BeVolunteer too.

A mail has been sent to the BoD to check that matter.
For further information see forum post "©by BeWelcome" in the BW group "Bugs" ;)

Change History (19)

Here is the text that seems to do it:

"BeWelcome - hospitality and cultural exchange

© 2007-2012 by BeVolunteer and contributors"

BeVolunteer should be a link to www.bevolunteer.org (redirecting to the BV wiki page for now)

We should add a "non" translatable words string. So that we do not have to change the code all the time.

In file build/rox/templates/footer.php change line 45 to :

<?php echo $words->get('TheHospitalityNetwork'); ?> &copy; 2007-<?php echo date('Y') . $words->get('CopyrightByBV'); ?>

change the word 'TheHospitalityNetwork?' to :

<strong>BeWelcome</strong> - hospitality and cultural exchange

and for the new keyword 'CopyrightByBV' set to not translatable :

 by <a href="http://www.bevolunteer.org">BeVolunteer</a>and contributors

I can't test it locally, because adding new translation keywords doesn't work.

hey mahouni try: ALTER TABLE words CHANGE id id INT( 11 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT

This fixed my db.

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by mahouni

Thanks crumbking. It worked!

I will add it to 1.0 milestone, as it doesn't need lot of testing..

Deployed on alpha. Looks good to me, so I'm closing this minor ticket.

comment:14 Changed 6 years ago by globetrotter_tt

I have added a link to bewelcome.org/wiki/bevolunteer in AdminWords. But it might be better to write bevolunteer.org and then redirect to the wiki page.

maybe there will be a dedicated website for BV in the future (it is planned for a long time)

Replying to jsfan:

Looks like there’s a missing space between "2007-2012" and "by BeVolunteer and contributors."

this is what i see now:

  • "hospitality and cultural exchange © 2007-2012 by BeVolunteerand? contributors" (EN)
  • "Gastfreundschaft und kultureller Austausch © 2007-2012 by BeVolunteerand? contributors" (DE)

the "hospitality and cultural exchange" slogan belonged to "BeWelcome", but since that's not there any more the slogan looks out of place. also still missing spaces after "BeVolunteer".

i will try to fix the spaces thing and remove the slogan for now, as it is not really needed there anyway

comment:18 Changed 6 years ago by planetcruiser

removed slogan via https://gitorious.org/bewelcome/rox/commit/8bc6485e55330ed61bdbc8b14a860e2e55d20f26 and fixed translations for EN, DE, HR and FR (removed "by" and added links everywhere)
