Every Day Journaling Theme - HELP! (5 posts)

    Has anyone been able to successfully upload and activate this theme yet? I've uploaded it several times. After moving files to higher folders, and having to create a separate "images" folder for all of the images to go into, it's still not right.

    None of the images are displaying on the page, only the main background color.

    I've done everything I know to do (which is pretty limited, technically speaking) and I'm about to give up on a fantastic theme because I've already spent many hours trying to get it right.

    Anyone have any help out there? Thanks!

    Best Regards,
    Lyn

    I would advise you to change your theme. This theme has an encrypted codes in the theme files I opened which can open you up to major script injections/hacking. There are great themes here - http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

    I've communicated with the developer and he said there are no encrypted codes in his theme.

    Given that, and even if there are encryptions, I really want to know how to fix this problem and use this theme.

    I just changed my theme back to the old one for the time being because it just didn't look right.

    There are encryptions/obfuscated code in the theme I downloaded from said developer which I downloaded from here just to assist you. I know encryptions or obfuscated code when I see them.

    I really want to know how to fix this problem and use this theme.

    When you contacted the developer re encryptions which he denied, did you not ask him why the theme is not working for you or for further assistance?

    There are ways to decode encrypted/obfuscated files

    Note that even if you decode the encryptions and remove some external links included in the footer.php, you would have to deregister some functions in your theme's functions.php, and clean up codes included in almost all the files in your theme to get your design going. Just a lot of work for a very common theme, it's just not worth it. But that's just me.

    Thanks, mercime. I appreciate your time and effort in providing the information. After doing a little more research, I've decided to abandon using the everyday journaling theme. Too much hassle for very little gain. Too bad, it was a really cute theme.

    I did ask the developer for more assistance and he gave me several reasons why the code might not work, all of which I tried (all included absolutely no decoding of encryptions, just minor fixes like making sure the files are in the right folder -- which I double and triple checked...the files were all there).

    I'm just going back to my old theme until I find something better. Thanks for the help! :-)
