    hello,

    I´m new to wordpress and i don#t have any it background. Nevertheless, i managed to create my own custom blog design based on a template. Now I want to change the copyright date in the footer from 2006 to 2010 but opening the footer.php with the wp-editor, I find myself with these hieroclyphic lines:

    <?php eval(gzinflate(base64_decode("ZVBBTsMwEDwXiT8sPlA4pC5UqhB1HIF4QCVQ4erETmLJ9lqO1ZDfY6eiCPXitWZnZ3an4kzqI2hZkhYxqkD49dWC+fwuPno9wKCjglQ9jiooCfUETEAfVFuSPkb/TOmIQfqghmGFoaMEoo5GleQzwfsMw6vBrtOug70RscVgCT83GRUcsptw8kL5adugaxNLoxNm1aClUh3pMNVWW/n953VQIXPggfD3ufn2lYVXl7tu9EnnPDqOI+HjZqbnPV6MgeQalYv57tsG/bSDx/V6C6zyvYc6XaNdi3dLJ6xa3u+gmicZzbExmgLl7KYo4JQoFMV/2ItO/YI1ymn+9NEa/gM="))); ?>

    The only thing I understand is that it is a php script, but everything that is between the brackets is just strange gibberish to me.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    the blog-adress is : http://www.flattersinn.de

    thanks a lot in advance!
    G.

    Thank you very much, Samboll!
    So why would anyone use such cryptic language if it can also be scrpited in an intellible way? Well, there will be a reason for that...

    @giberian: For future reference, please post requests for footer decoding like this in the sticky thread marked out for that purpose: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/388507?replies=30

    Avoiding duplicate topics helps keep the Forums clean, nice to use, and fast to find information.
