Hi all,

Am trying to do a simple rebrand of silverstripe.

I have successfully redone the loading logo and name in the bottom right footer of the admin, but when I hover my mouse over my newly changed name I get an alt tag popup showing the word Silver Stripe Website, and a link pointing to Both of these things I am trying to get rid of.

Here is the few tutorial I went through.

Any help would be great

I noticed that the LeftAndMain::setApplicationName(); function accepts more than one argument, so try something like this:

LeftAndMain::setApplicationName('Rebranded Name', 'Rebranded Name', '');

To rebrand the "title" attribute of the <a> tag in the footer you can create a lang/xx_XX.php file, that looks like this:

$lang['xx_XX']['']['SSWEB'] = 'Rebranded Name';

where "xx_XX" is your locale.
