  1. I understand Mike’s opinion. Suffusion is a complex and sophisticated meta data manager. The author deserves credit.

    However, presenting that string without option to remove is a problem. Many customers do not want that nor do they want any indication of the site builder. The fact that it cannot be removed eliminates Suffusion as a candidate in many professional projects.

    • You can remove the text following above steps and certainly include it in your projects.

  2. Thank you! Works great, took me a minute to read your instructions and implement them.
