If odoo does not allow to remove "POWERED BY ODOO"? Then why Odoo de-branding module is available at odoo official website?

Odoo de-branding module is available at:  https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/8.0/web_debranding/

It performs the following things:

Backend debranding

Removes references to odoo.com:

Deletes Odoo label in footer

Replaces "Odoo" in page title

Replaces "Odoo" in help message for empty list

Deletes Odoo link (as well as "Manage databases" link) from login page

Deletes About Odoo link

Replaces default logo by empty image

Replaces "Odoo" in Dialog Box

Replaces "Odoo" in strings marked for translation.

Replaces default favicon to a custom one

Hides Modules menu (by default, only admin user see Modules menu. You could change it via tick "Show Modules Menu" in user's access rights tab)

Removes odoo.com bindings (via disable_openerp_online module)

Deletes "Sent by ... using OpenERP" footer in email (via mail_delete_sent_by_footer module)

By default the module replaces "Odoo" to "Software". To configure module open Settings\System Parameters and modify

web_debranding.new_title (put space in value if you don't need Brand in Title)



Further debranding

install website_debranding module if module "Website Builder" is installed in your system

uninstall im_odoo_support module.

delete "Odoo.com Accounts" record at Settings\Users\OAuth Providers if module "OAuth2 Authentication" is installed. in your system

to debrand /web/database/manager:

add web_debranding to server wide modules, e.g.

./odoo.py --load=web,web_kanban,web_debranding

edit addons/web/views/database_manager.html file:

delete or modify <title> tag

delete or modify favicon

right after script tag with src="/web/static/src/js/boot.js" add code below:

<!-- debranding -->

<script type="text/javascript" src="/web_debranding/static/src/js/main.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/web_debranding/static/src/js/title.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/web_debranding/static/src/js/about.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/web_debranding/static/src/js/dialog.js"></script>

<link href="/web_debranding/static/src/css/database_manager.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

Auto-debrand new databases

To automatically install this module for every new databases set 'auto_install': True in __openerp__.py files of following modules:






But i think i did not ask anything bad, neither abused anyone. Its a simple question. Is odoo debranding for personal or single user, allowed or not?

Yes, it's allowed by the license (AGPL for Odoo v8 or lower, LGPL for Odoo v9).

I did convert your comment as an answer.

it is NOT a module developed by Odoo itself. you can see "community" label at the page of module (page you refer to in the question), here is quote how community module described by Odoo in short:

Community App: this feature is not verified nor supported by Odoo.

also you can add/publish your own community module, and it'll have similar page as the one you referred to in your question, see: https://apps.openerp.com/apps/upload/  So, being published on the referred page does not mean that it's an official/certified odoo module. you should pay attention to labels like: "community" and "certified"... presence of "community" label means it's not an official odoo module.


I think you question does not fit into the format of this forum. 1) it's a Help forum, from your question I do not see what is the issue you have exactly ? and how can we help you? (Please add clarification to your question)  2) Your question is kinda argumentative, so it's candidate for closing as such... According guidlines, You can join the community mailing lists for subjective discussions, but help forum is a wrong place for a such discussion.

What Ibrar is asking is a kind of licensing question. Is it allowed to de-brand Odoo when using the community/opensource edition?
