– I went ahead and checked out the branch and tested out the functionality. See "additional-footer.png" for the new feature and "default-footer.png" for our typical non-augmented footer. I have no problem with the functionality, but as we noted earlier, there are concerns. The blockers being:

  • Can these be translated from within a setting?

  • Can the solution be generalized?

I'd like to suggest the author update the PR so that the footer as a whole could be configured, but don't have good idea for how to make the footer a setting and translatable.

& might have some insights into translations from within a settings file.

Thanks for checking this out. Here's a post on translating within django settings modules:

would you classify this as an addition to theming?

If theming was supported in Insights... yes. At the moment, however, we need to find another mechanism for making it generic.
