This not only points users to our site from yours, it also increases HCoop's search engine rankings and makes it easier for people to find. HCoop's Alexa traffic rankings have gone from 4,000,000 to 900,000 in the last three months alone. If we can continue that trend we are on the right track.

=== MoinMoin default footer ===

As you can see below, the default footer for MoinMoin wikis hosted by HCoop contains links/credits for:
 * !MoinMoin Powered
 * Python Powered
 * GPL licensed
 * Valid HTML 4.01

Why not add a credit for HCoop?

I added the following section to my `~/wiki/wikiconfig.py` configuration file
{{{
    # Page Credits ---------------------------------------------
    # Feel free to add other credits, but PLEASE do NOT change or remove
    # the following links - you help us by keeping them "as is":
    page_credits = [
        '<a href="http://moinmo.in/" title="This site uses the MoinMoin Wiki software.">MoinMoin Powered</a>',
        '<a href="http://moinmo.in/Python" title="MoinMoin is written in Python.">Python Powered</a>',

        # Optional credits:
        # if you think it can be maybe misunderstood as applying to content or topic of your wiki,
        # feel free to remove this one:
        '<a href="http://moinmo.in/GPL" title="MoinMoin is GPL licensed.">GPL licensed</a>',

        # '<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer" title="Click here to validate this page.">Valid HTML 4.01</a>',
        ]
}}}

You can see the results in the footers in [[http://wiki.sabmagfaq.org/|SabMagWiki]].

AFAICT, you can change this for everyone in the file `/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/MoinMoin/config/multiconfig.py`. In the `page_credits` variable add:
{{{
'<a href="http://hcoop.net/" title="This wiki is hosted by HCoop.">Hosted by HCoop</a>',
}}}
 /!\ Beware the commas needed at the end of each credit.
