    This is driving me crazy. I have worked for 2 hours customizing a free theme I found and didn't take a look at the footer links. Now I have been trying to another 2 hours to get rid of them and just can't figure out how.

    I have narrowed it down to this code:

    I think this is what is causing it, since everytime I do anything to the links I get this damn message. Is there a way I can edit this code to stop it checking for these links?

    just look in the 'footer.php', 'sidebar.php' and 'functions.php' and see if you find any encrypted code

    Try to delete
    if (!empty($_REQUEST["theme_license"])) { theme_usage_message(); exit(); }

    By the looks of it you'll either have to post your footer.php here or let one of us login to your site before we can actually help you.

    as posted in another thread here but maybe worth a repeat.

    this might help, I found this one a wp help forum. ????
    Find your index.php find the line that says
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Above and below it place some marker text like this

    <!-- Evil Footer Devil FOUND -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    <!-- Evil Footer Devil BEGONE -->

    Now visit your blog, view source, and copy the HTML from between the two markers. Rename your footer.php and make a new copy with that HTML code.

    Change it to your hearts content. Remember to insert the <?php wp_footer(); ?> before </body> tag.

    It is not in the footer, it has shit encoded all over the functions.php file
