is it possible to remove the PHPlist Appliance - Powered by TurnKey Linux on the bottom of each webpage for phplist?

Please have a look at the first post in this thread. The thread is quite old and long, but still gets a fair bit of traffic, so I dug out the answer and edited the top post to include it.

If that doesn't solve it for you (although I'm pretty sure that it should), please post back and I'll have a closer look at the build code for you.

Is this somehow related to the footer (and/or removal of it)? Or a completely separate issue?

Regardless, could you please try to spell out exactly how I might be able to recreate this issue? I.e. step by step to make my example server get the same error? If I can recreate it, I can almost certainly fix it! :)

No problem at all. Thanks for reporting the issue and providing details of how to reproduce. I'll get onto that ASAP and post back.

Thanks to your info and a little research to make sure I wasn't missing anything, I can certainly reproduce this issue.

After a bit of trial and error, I have worked out the issue and how to fix it. I've opened a bug on our issue tracker and detailed the fix in the "workaround" section there.

As noted over there, the issue is that the default path to "kcfinder" is incorrect in the CKEditor plugins config. The path it is trying to use is '/var/www/phplist/admin/plugins/CKEditorPlugin/kcfinder' (which is the absolute path in the filesystem). Instead it should be a relative path to the admin webroot. I.e. 'plugins/CKEditorPlugin/kcfinder'.

A PHP image library also should be installed:

apt update
apt install php-gd
service apache2 restart

I have also found a couple of other things that we should improve for the next release (when we fix this bug) and detailed them in the issue.

Hopefully that gets you up and running. Thanks again for reporting. It gives us the opportunity to make the next release better! :)

If you find any further issues and/or have any other feedback for us, please do not hesitate to open a new thread (or even post back here on this one).

You can set phpList to remove the image in the config/config.php file, in which case a text link is substituted. After all, you're getting the use of it for free, why not give phpList the kudos of having written it by including a line of code?
