I know how to change the copyright info on a customer view, but how do I get rid of the magento copyright on the admin login box?

I'm working on a multi-vendor store and want no reference to Magento (mainly for security purposes).

Your admin login should not be visible to others in the first place. It has become best practice to set up a different admin URL in the store configuration. You could also protect the admin URL additionally with basic authentication (htaccess password).

You also want to delete or protect the /downloader directory.

Regarding "want no reference to Magento": If you don't want anybody to recognize that it's a Magento site, it's going to be more work. See: Protect a site from wappalyzer

Update: I overlooked the "multi-vendor-store" bit, so there's more to it. You would need to create a custom admin theme (as described in is there a way to alter translate.csv for ADMIN without altering core file?) where you can remove the footer, change the logo and so on. For just a modified login screen, this little extension comes in handy: https://github.com/SchumacherFM/Magento-OptimizedBackendLogin/

  • Thanks - I did change the logos without a problem, that was easy :) I'll look at the other suggestions, thanks.
