    Hello, I am using the WordPress theme iGadgets, and I want to change the footer.
    (I know it possible because on Yutubemedia's website, his footer is changed.)
    Anyway, here is my script:
    ' </div>
    <div id="footer">Copyright © "><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> - <?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>
    <?php // This theme is released free for use under creative commons licence. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
    // All links in the footer should remain intact.
    // These links are all family friendly and will not hurt your site in any way.
    // Warning! Your site may stop working if these links are edited or deleted ?>
    <div id="footer2">Powered by WordPress | BestInCellPhones.com Offers Free Cell Phones. Compare Rate Plans at iCellPhonePlans.com and find Cheap Palm Pixi at iCellPhoneDeals.com.</div>
    </div>
    <?php
    wp_footer();
    echo get_theme_option("footer") . "\n";
    ?>
    </body>
    </html>'
    So how do I change the footer, is it encryptedd, or what?

    Probably not obfuscated or "encrytpted" in this case. In functions.php, you will probably find something like this:

    if (!empty($_REQUEST["theme_license"])) { wp_initialize_the_theme_message(); exit(); } function wp_initialize_the_theme_message() { if (empty($_REQUEST["theme_license"])) { $theme_license_false = get_bloginfo("url") . "/index.php?theme_license=true";

    The code in functions.php will most likely disable your theme if you change the footer.

    What it amounts to is the theme developer (or the distributor) wagging a finger in your face and saying; "Now, now... all of the links we provide are for you are perfectly safe. There's no reason you should WANT to change them, and if you do, we'll disable your free theme, and you can't use it at all!".

    Options:

    1) If you really like the theme, see if the theme author offers a version without this nonsense, or a commercial license that entitles you to use the theme as you wish.

    2) dump the theme completely. (just my opinion, by the way)

    Hmmm yutubemedia said u have to pay, but I can't find anything like that. I might look it up.
