How many billions of times have I done this and I still forget? I'm talking about how to remove the "Powered by DB/Text WebPublisher from INMAGIC" text from the bottom of your search results. You may laugh at my inability to remember such a simple thing, but even if just for my own sake, I'm making a note of it here while I still remember from yet another time I couldn't quite recall the process:

  1. Locate the inmagic.ini settings file (do yourself a favor and simply search across your entire drive for all instances of this file as it can be, among other places, in your Windows directory, in your Inmagic Program Files directory, and/or etc.).
  2. Add the following text to the bottom of the file:
    [WebPublisher]
    WebHideINM=1
  3. And while you're at it, add IgnoreAccents too (ignores accents in searching, for i.e. searching on Université with ignore accents on, ahem, ignores the accents. Yes, Ted of the brilliant explanations. Trust me, this is a good thing:
    [Inmagic DB/TextWorks]
    IgnoreAccents=1
  4. You'll likely have to reset IIS to get the settings to hold. Easiest way to do this is Start Menu -> Run -> type in "iisreset" (without the quotes) and enter.
