We've always wanted to edit the footer of Plone providing our customers' contact info.
We've always customized both portal_footer.pt and portal_colophon.pt in our Plone 2.5.x sites, but now we can hide them easily hiding plone.footer and plone.colophon viewlets through @@manage-viewlets or setting a viewlets.xml in an extension profile, thanks to new viewlet infrastructure in Plone3.
This product adds a new viewlet called cs.editablefooter and it's added automatically to plone.portalfooter portlet manager
It also creates a new control panel in which you can edit the content of the viewlet using a WYSIWYG editor.
From version 2.0 on, the permission to edit the contents of the viewlet has been changed from "Manage portal" to a custom "cs.editablefooter: edit footer".
By default this permission is assigned to Site Administrators and Managers.
Go to the Add-on controlpanel and hit upgrade.
