Okay. It's good to have some consistency. > Drupal lets admins set the footer message, we can have this > appriopriatly set by default in the kit we are building.

I'll describe how i attempted to handle this problem in Bluesky 2.0 -- just as a starting point for ideas. Please post on whether this sounds reasonable, feel free to suggest better ways or policies, etc. - The theme has its own footer on its configuration page. This footer contains the CC license message and the 11 CFR message. - This message has to announce who is paying for the site. The "[SPONSOR]" variable is substituted into the 11 CFR message from the "Sponsor" field, another setting in the theme config. - An admin can change or erase the theme footer, but there's an explanation under the text box that recommends keeping the CFR message, with a link to the relevant section of the FEC site. - Both the site footer (from the site configuration page) and the theme footer appear together at the bottom of the page. > Do we need a portion hardwired in and what language should it have? That's still an open question. At the moment all i know about is 11 CFR 110.11(a)(1)(iii). See http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/11cfrv1_03.html It may be wise to hardcode this into themes. I don't know. Does anyone know of other requirements? -- ?!ng
