I just created a new Wiki, I think I choose some "book" style. The footer states:

"Content is available under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 unless otherwise noted"

I want to change it to version 4.0. How do I achieve that?

This type of licence message also appears whenever I edit a page. Can I change the licence there too?

Many thanks for your help. I managed to change the license text, but there is a license icon in the footer that still points to the older licence version. Do you know how to change the footer, or at least that icon? Rdiez (talk) 08:36, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
No problem. 😉 As for the icon, try sending ShoutWiki an e-mail via Special:Contact. Rock-O-Jello (talk) 20:30, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

How can I change what the contents of the $1 calls for the URL and the link text?

Over at the MediaWiki site, it mentions altering either $wgRightsPage or $wgRightsUrl but not sure the correct location of those variables.

Basically I want to change the text of the link that is called via $1 in the footer to read "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0" and the link to the instead of the 3.0 listed and the link to the that was set by default when my wiki was started. – Mitchell Gore (talk) 00:37, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
