- How to disable link in Chat area:
sudo vi /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/bigbluebutton/WEB-INF/classes/bigbluebutton.properties
Set “defaultWelcomeMessageFooter” property to empty or perhaps html break tag. Restart nginx to see effect.
- How to modify the footer:
For this, you will first have to setup a development environment, following url explains how to do this. https://code.google.com/p/bigbluebutton/wiki/081DevelopingBigBlueButton
Then change “bbb.mainshell.copyrightLabel2” property in ~/dev/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton–client/locale/en_US/bbbResources.properties
Afterwards rebuild your client using “ant locales”, and copy output file: en_us_resources.swf to /var/www/bigbluebutton/client/locale.
NOTE: You might need to restart the bigbluebutton server once in the end. Also I have used locale en_US for example, you should modify inside the locale you are working with.
To disable messages in chat area
change the fields defaultWelcomeMessage and defaultWelcomeMessageFooter to any customized message according to your own requirements.
Restart nginx and bigbluebutton(sudo bbb-conf –restart)
To disable the bigbluebutton copyright and version message
scroll to the bottom of the document and edit/remove the row div in the html file.
NOTE- Before doing this you may have to change the permissions of the index file (Exp- sudo chmod 777 /var/www/bigbluebutton-default.index.html)
