    BHW,

    I have been looking around to see options on how to 'hide' theme information appearing on 'view source code' information when people visit my site and hit right-click to check the info. Is there anyway to hide this information? I'm not good at any coding, development, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: I'm using a html/css opencart theme.

    Thanks in advance!
    Mo...

    no, you can't completely hide it. What you can do for example is to rename the theme folder to something else, so when doing a view source the name of the theme won't show up that easily

    Thanks, that helps for a start! (I'll rename it to my site name). Hope I'm not asking too much, but obviously everyone is going to know I'm using a theme for my site right? (even with the rename hiding the original theme info). Will that be an issue if I'm trying establish a 'legit' company to draw customers and for them to 'trust' the site to buy items? (my items are 100% legit and legal, with warranties and will be legally registered, etc.)

    why would the theme be a problem for sales? I don't think anybody is doing a view source and inspecting the theme when he goes on a site to purchase a product
