    Home Page:
    In your wp dashboard, all you have to do is go to: Appearance - Editor and click on "footer" on the right hand side of the screen. This should show you the links in the footer and you should be able to delete them from there by just deleting the links and saving the file.

    Keep in mind that this is against the tos for the free themes.

    If it was that easy I could do it by myself :cool:.... But there are no links in the footer content... And deleting it from the main index.php doesn't work!

    It could be a function hooked into the footer. Check the themes function file, either for the links that you can see, or for some base64 code.

    An easy way around this is not to remove it but to hide it with a little css;

    .art-page-footer {display:none}

    Open your style.css find class 'art-page-footer' around line 1356 and add display:none, simples.

    There is a decrypted part in functions.php but cant decrypt it... it sais:
    "The input is not a valid Base-64 string as it contains a non-base 64 character, more than two padding characters, or a non-white space character among the padding characters."

    You can download the theme I attached it in the first post, could you please look at it for me!?

    Ok, that is doubly encrypted, and I haven't got time right now to go through it.

    If you want you can try the following;

    First, go to your index page and view source, copy all the html in the footer area and save it to a text file for later.
    Take a copy of the theme functions.php and footer.php files and save them on your pc in case this doesn't work.

    Edit your theme functions file on the server and remove entirely line 73 - that's the encrypted line. Be careful to remove all from the first $ to the last ; on that line, but nothing else.
    Then edit your footer.php file, again on the server, and remove the php code within the p class="art-page-footer" paragraph.

    Load your index page and see if that removed the links. If it did, but messed up the theme, go to the html you saved in the first step and find the missing html to make your theme look right again.

    If it didn't work then upload the saved functions and footer files to your theme.

    Maybe you can remove it in the XML or PHTML files? I know I had the same issue on a magento template and I located the line in the code and removed it.

    it's not that easy. these themes have 3 or 4 separate functions in the header.php, footer.php, index.php and functions.php that check for the code within the footer. You need to open up each theme file and locate those functions. comment them out and then remove the encoded content from the footer. If you still receive the message there is one more function you did not remove. Start with functions.php and footer.php and review the code carefully. Then check out header.php and lastly index.php.

    It's kinda hard work in most cases and some PHP knowledge is required but if you think it's worth go for it. If not choose another theme ...

    after taking a look it would take time and money if you wanted me to fix that but I do not think people understand, I would just use a different theme, not only is the theme itself crap but they spent more time on trying to protect it then they did on the actual theme. If you want to find it, you need to understand the code and take a look through all the files, at least thats how I would do it.
