    Anyone knows how to delete the outgoing links in the footer of those newwpthemes without breaking the theme? Those themes seems to be the only ones where I can't delete the links in the footer.

    Open all the theme files, u can use Notepad++ or Dreamweaver for example to open multiple files and then use search function to search through All Open Documents for the text you want to replace or in your case delete
    You can search through the source code of course with both these softwares, but id recommend Dreamweaver CS5

    Just go to www.newwpthemesDOTcom and download anyone of those themes and they'll have those links in the footer that seems impossible to get rid of.

    Should be pretty straight forward. Open the footer.php and remove any extra code that is on the page.

    Paste the footer.php file on here and I'm sure someone can do it for you pretty quickly.

    It's not as simple as this. If you remove the links from the footer.php the theme will break and instead of your site you'll get a page that says something like "The links at the footer need to be there for the theme to work"

    Removing those links and still having the footer work is gonna take a lot of work. You'll have to edit header.php, functions.php and footer.php
    In header.php and functions.php are you're gonna find some base64 encoded parts... you will need to decode them and see which of them affect the footer part. Same for the functions.php. In the end.. too much work to just get rid of a few links.

    Use this:

    go to your index.php and put these codes

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


    then go to your site and right click choose "view source"

    coy the code in between the tags and replace the code in your footer.php

    most of the time this works, other wise check the other files like temlate.php or functions.php and look for eval 64 or gzinflate, the it gets more complicated.

    Get that div id from the footer.php
    should be footer2 ( <div id="footer2"> )

    2
    Search for footer2 in style.css - you should find similar thing:

    Code:
    #footer2 {
    	color: #808080;
    	font-size: 11px;
    	text-align: center;
    	padding: 10px;
    	}
    
    3
    Now just add a line display: none; and youre done
    Code:
    #footer2 {
    	color: #808080;
    	font-size: 11px;
    	text-align: center;
    	padding: 10px;
    	display: none;
    	}
    
    Eazy, no problems

    Doesn't mean the links are gone. Just because humans can't see em, spiders can. So you'll still be passing linkjuice, and on top of that, Google might think you're doing a dodgey on them, and might get you into 'trouble'.

    I'm using a couple of these themes myself. I was able to remove the links in the footer. The coder used eval statements and inside of them are the base64 encoded functions that create those links. Most likely the only ones you will need to change are the ones in the functions.php file. You can print the eval statements out to your page and see the code thats inside.

    Code:
    print "<br/><br/>2:".base64_decode('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');
    For one theme I only needed to comment out each eval statement in the functions file. In another theme there was only 1 eval at the very end and of the code, however I needed a function he was calling and the only way to get it to work was to print out the eval, copy the output into the functions.php file and comment out the code that creates the links while keeping other code which displays the footer.

    I already told you guys how to do it.

    Look for the eval() statements in the functions.php file. Some of themes you can simply comment those lines out, other themes you need to print the base64_decode and copy the output to your functions.php file and then comment out the line that checks the footer.

    I quickly looked at the Zetix theme and it's function.php file was very similar to one I used. If the logic is the same then you should be able to simply comment out those lines.

    If my posts don't make sense to you or if you have no PHP experience then $3 is a bargain as long as he actually removes them and doesn't use CSS to hide them.
