    I have "GameHub" Theme from "newwpthemes".

    I want to remove the footer links, I searched into functions.php, bottom.php but couldn't find out how to remove the footer.

    Thanks

    This should do the trick, unless they have some javascript or something else that checks if the footer is there and could "ruin" the whole theme. But most of them don't have this.

    Did that but my domain is redirected to mydomaincom/index.php?theme_license=true
    where a black text tells me:
    "This theme is released free for use under creative commons licence. All links in the footer should remain intact. These links are all family friendly and will not hurt your site in any way. This great theme is brought to you for free by these supporters."

    Delete only the link part of the footer.

    Find the <a href="">xxx</a> part. Usually you can delete that part without problem or at least delete part of the link so no link juice is gone

    Dude, in appearance, go to editor, on the right side, you'll find a footer.php and there you'll find the text to change or google how to change a php footer

    when its encrypted, go with pro or change theme, because we don't know how the encryption looks like, and what effect it takes, I recommed DIVI 2.0 it was worse the money, but if you look for it, you'll find also a shared one from sharemafia

    search through code in footer and functions for "eval" - there is likely some stuff encoded with various functions.
    use this link to descramble it, it's the best online tool, very easy and can deal with nested functions
    http://www.mobilefish.com/services/eval_gzinflate_base64/eval_gzinflate_base64.php

    What I usually do is descramble - change the link it's searching for to a non-breaking space and then rescramble it and paste it back in, that way you don't need to mess with finding and breaking their checks, because then in the footer you can just replace the links with a non-breaking space too which doesn't muck with your presentation usually.

    It's probably a combination of PHP and Javascript. The PHP program prints out the links and a DIV with some ID. The javascript checks if that ID exists. If you have deleted it, then it redirects you to that license page.

    Remove the Javascript and edit the PHP. Both are clear text so you can modify it at will. Someone brought up base64 encoding : you may need to decode the JS or PHP before editing it.
