This is by design.

It's not actually about how many levels there are. Credits are only 
displayed on "index.html" pages, regardless of their depth in the 
document tree.

Ideally this should be customisable in skinconf.xml.

Take a look in 
FORREST_HOME/main\webapp\skins\pelt\xslt\html\site-to-xhtml.xsl (that's 
SVN head, if you are on 0.7 it is the same path but site2xhtml.xsl) and 
search for

<xsl:if test="$filename = 'index.html' and $config/credits">

If you are willing to make this customisable we'd welcome a patch. For a 
method of doing this customisation search the same file for

<xsl:if test="$config/motd">

which uses a pattern defined in sinconf to decide when the MOTD should 
be displayed.

We'd also welcome a patch to our docs at to make this clearer.
