How to extend/patch the footer with additional links?
I shutdown my redmine page for several month because of DSGVO/GDPR issue ( see also at http://www.redmine.org/issues/28882 )
But I need to bring website online again! As long there is no solution from Redmine itself, I want to make a patch.
I would want to extend the footer with direct links to this pages.
I found footer creation code in source:trunk/app/views/layouts/base.rhtml, but indeed I do not understand the syntax.
What I need to do exactly to add an additional link to the footer?
I tried to add text like this: Imprint. But it is displayed as text only exactly as written, not as link!
Hopefully there is a quick solution!

what's the version of your Redmine installation?
I think you should be fine with adding a plain html link @<a>Link<a/>@into the footer section of base.rhtml ...
many thanks for your help. This was exactly, what I needed. I added a line to the footer definition:
<div id="footer"> <div class="bgl"><div class="bgr"> <a href ="/projects/legal/wiki/imprint">Impressum</a> <a href ="/projects/legal/wiki/privacy-policy">Datenschutzhinweis</a> <a href ="/projects/legal/wiki/contact">Kontakt</a><br> ... ...
Now I can turn on my website again without having headache every day!
There is one additional thing, I am waiting for redmine improvement.
I have disabled self registration of new users.
So at all my website should fullfill DSGVO/GDPR for 100 %
