Does your favourite extension insist on putting a back link in it's output? Our redaction plugin is exactly what you need. Now you can eliminate unwanted code without hacking the offending extension.
The Redact plugin is designed to remove unwanted signatures that other extensions or templates display in their output. The GPL explicitly allows you to modify code, despite many extensions that attempt to apply additional restrictions above and beyond the GPL. While is it possible to modify the code to remove these signatures, this customization complicates the process of applying updates from the extension developer. Abivia's plg_redact plugin lets you remove these unwanted notices without changing the code.

The syntax needed is a bit difficult for me because i am not a programmer, but the extension has built-in hints. I also posted a couple of questions in their forum, and other users helped me right away.
Amazingly after reading the instructions a second time (just to be sure I understood everything), it worked right away.
I will be installing this on all my sites.
If you are having problems with this, keep this rule in mind: "RTFM"
There's a lot of power built into this extension. We did our best to make it as simple to use as we could without limiting the power.
To make it even easier, we're building a repository of rules on our forums at http://www.abivia.net/help/forums/forum?id=4. Check in there for help, or contribute a new rule and help others.
Man I love this plugin...
Thank you so much for this awesome plugin, it saved me so much time. I took as long as downloading the plugin inatalling it and setting a quick rule. First even lazy attempt totally removed a backlink.. that is pretty sweet.
