    Default Need help removing footer links

    I'm a complete noob when it comes to PHP, I'm trying to remove these footer links on this theme . I tried to just manually change them in the footer.php and it locked the site, I had to reupload the footer.php to my server to get my site up and running again. I don't see any encryption in the footer so I guess there is some kind of function that is checking for the footer then locks if its not true. The footer just looks like

    Code:
    <div class="midend"></div>
    </div>
    <div class="themeftr">
    <div class="themefooterhdr">
    <div class="themefooterhdrclr"></div>
    <div id="themedetails">
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/include/Modules/modtwo.php');?>
    </div>
    <div class="authordetails">

    </div>
    </div>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php echo get_admin_options("ftscript");?>
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>
    I noticed when I opened the functions.php there is a large block that looks like something encrypted like this

    Code:
    <?php ${"G\x4c\x4f\x42A\x4c\x53"}["\x78\x72\x6d\x73\x74\x66\x75w\x6f"]="\x70\x6f\x73\x74s\x5fpe\x72_\x70\x61\x67\x65";${"\x47L\x4fB\x41\x4c\x53"}["\x6f\x63\x68\x79\x6c\x74\x66\x6c\x6e"]="\x70\x6f\x73\x74_\x69\x64";${"\x47\x4c\x4f\x42\x41LS"}["l\x6a\x6e\x65\x79\x6a\x64f\x6fe\x69g"]="\x6d\x69\x6e\x5fli\x6e\x6bs";${"\x47LO\x42\x41\x4c\x53"}["\x6ap\x79
    but much longer. Can anyone please help me figure out how to get these footer links out of this theme? Any help would be appreciated.

    Not sure about the encrypted part, did you bought this theme or found it somewhere else?

    If you modify anything in the footer.php it locks the site, there is some function somewhere checking the footer I just don't know how to find it, it's a free theme btw.

    have you tried contacting the theme designer directly?

    Yes of course that would do a lot of good, contacting the theme designer who went to the trouble of putting encrypted/encoded links in the footer that lock your site if modified, he surely will tell me how to remove the links from the footer!

    Maybe a function is called by

    <?php echo get_admin_options("ftscript");?>

    Comment it out and see what happens. If it locks find the function and work from there

    Default Re: Need help removing footer links

    I have dealt with this issue a lot as I have been building several wordpress sites for the last year or so. This is almost always something that can be fixed using .CSS If people disagree, then I'm just sharing my own experience. I've worked with probably 20 diff WP themes and have always been able to get rid of footer attribution or change it using CSS. Try right clicking and using inspect element option on Google Chrome or use Firebug on Firefox browser and then find out the class or ID of the footer part you want to get rid of and then find the part of the style.css file that can change this class or ID. Make the appropriate changes on the style sheet using a text editor and reupload and overwrite the original file. Hope that helps.
