    I just started using word press instead of dreamweaver, and when I tried to remove one of the links in the footer I got this message "This theme is released under creative commons licence, all links in the footer should remain intact" I had no idea doing that would disable word press on my server, any ideas on fixing this would be great.

    Thanks

    This is how Wordpress's site tells you to get rid of it:

    As long as people use these themes, this practice will continue. It's basic economics.
    If you can't decode the footer, try this:
    In 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.
    Keep in mind that if your theme's license for use doe not permit this, then don't do it. If that's the case follow MichaelH's advice and get a friendly theme.

    the link is there so that the creator gets a good juicy back-link.

    .... you didn't think they'd give something away for free did you?!
