A Better Admin Footer

Stock appearance in UBB.Threads 7.5.9


About:
This is a very simple html update to the admin section's footer which replaces the forwarding (and tracking/logging of directme.cgi) links from the stock admin section to direct links of the ubbcentral.com support sites. This edit adds direct links for useful resources, such as the UBB.Central Forums, UBBWiki, and UBB.Dev. And finally, this edit also opens the links in a "_blank" tab, rather than the current one. It also synchronizes the 'powered by' text presentation with that of your user forums.

top: before, bottom: after.

In templates/default/admin/admin_footer.tmpl
Find:

Code
<tr>
<td colspan="3" id="footer">
<span>
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/" class="u_footer_links">UBBCentral.com</a> |
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/cgi-bin/directme.cgi?to=threadsmembers" class="u_footer_links">UBB.threads™ Member Area </a> |
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/cgi-bin/directme.cgi?to=threadssupport" class="u_footer_links">Documents & Support</a> |
<span>Powered by UBB.threads™ $VERSION</span>
</span>
</td>
</tr>

Replace With:
Code
<tr>
<td colspan="3" id="footer">
<span>
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/support.php" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">Documents & Support</a> |
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">Community Forums</a> |
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/members/members.php" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">Member Area </a> |
<a href="http://www.ubbwiki.com/" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">UBBWiki</a> |
<a href="https://ubbdev.com/" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">UBB.Dev</a><br />
<a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com/" target="_blank" class="u_footer_links">Powered by UBB.threads&#8482; PHP Forum Software $VERSION</a>
</span>
</td>
</tr>

Updated the code and screenshot to coincide a 7.5.8 (and prior 7.x version) install with UBB.threads 7.5.9.
