Tripadvisor offers a free wordpress theme at here

If you go on this page, you'll see the free wordpress theme, and on the navigation bar, there is the trip advisor logo on the right, How can I remove this logo because i have many menu items?? By the way can i remove it not specified nothing as rules and regulation??

  • could you post a link to your site? the quickest way would be to hide this by editing css (setting attribute hide) – Orangine Jan 15 '12 at 17:49
  • I'm still developing on localhost, if you click on the link i've given above, u'll the theme there – Noor Jan 15 '12 at 17:53

If you open header.php and remove line 96: <a class="ta-bug" title=" TripAdvisor " href="http://tripadvisor.com"><img src="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/images/TA_bug.gif"></a>, it will be gone. I cannot speak to the legality of this with certainty, but by my understanding of GPL2.0, you should be set.


The theme is under this license: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html

So I'm not sure it is allowed.

Edit: In regards to m0r7if3r's comments, it may or may not be allowed, as I'm not an expert in licenses. If you want to take the chance though, look at the other answer.

  • How do you figure? – mor7ifer Jan 15 '12 at 19:27
  • "Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed." - Let me add that I'm not an expert in licenses. :) – Jared Jan 15 '12 at 22:52

    No, that means changing the LICENSE is not allowed, the section about modifying the software starts here "You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:"...I think...sounds like it's time for a law.stackexchange.com :D – mor7ifer Jan 15 '12 at 23:00
  • I agree, I would participate there! Would be a great resource to have. – Jared Jan 16 '12 at 0:08
