    at the bottom of the theme theres some 3 text links to some insurance sites that need to be removed. they're not in the footer.php. I think it might be in the functions.php but that looks to be encoded. How do you remove them?

    I was wondering the same thing and then I saw that someone in the flexibilitytheme forum posted the following:

    The links are in the free version and are, I guess, providing backlinks for the author's personal sites (or sites he's affiliated with).

    If you want to get rid of them, you can purchase a version of Flexibility 3 with these links removed. Go to:

    (unable to post link)

    for details.

    You want an easier way to remove these links well here you go... :cool:

    get into your flexibility3 theme folder and open up the footer.php file in your editor. Scroll to the bottom and find the code...

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    DELETE THIS EXACTLY and upload back to your site!

    Thats ALL you have to do and is very simple. Click THANKS if this has Helped you!

    Enjoy

    P.S. I have tested and confirmed this for two sites using this theme

    That breaks the theme every time for me. Youll see a big gap at the top.

    I use this method to remove encrypted footers and it always works:
    Code:

    When I do that, the crappy insurance links will shop up in footer.php and I just cut em out.

    Removing the <?php wp_footer(); ?> from your footer.php will definitely work and won't affect anything else.

    But the flexibility3 theme ... that guy has 1 support post in the last 3 years, although there are a hundred questions.

    And if you look at your functions.php, it's all encoded and obfuscated, so that right there tells you it's not too trustworthy.

    But I still use it, and just figure out hacks every time I need something done.
