Your screenshot makes no sense, that's not the right place to override a module.

The Joomla footer module (modules\mod_footer) is a simple module that basically outputs some lines of text, and if you want to modify the output, the simplest solution is to add a Custom module from your module manager:

Custom module

Publish the module to the same position as your footer module, and unpublish the current one.


If you prefer to use the mod_footer module, you can override the output by copying the file ROOT\modules\mod_footer\tmpl\default.php to ROOT\templates\YOURTEMPLATE\html\mod_footer\default.php. Edit the file to suit your needs.

  • Hi johanpw! i just have published some screenshots more, your solution works well, i also had reached this approach. I think that also it is possible to solve this via mod_footer and language overrides for a specific template
