[resolved] Need help deleting text from a theme (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I am very new to wordpress and I have installed a theme and am trying to modify it. There is text at the bottom that I can not figure out how to get off. I am used to editing html but there are no html files when I go to editor. I've even tried looking through ftp. I've looked at every file available in the editor but can not find the text anywhere. I would appreciate any help. If it will help, the template is called wp art imagination. My blogsite is owningsingle.com (still brand new, nothing in it). The text says "Powered by Laptop" and the link that it points to doesn't work which is why I want to edit it.

    Thanks!

    I suspect you will find it located in the footer.php file, however, you may also find that the contents of footer.php in that theme, have been obfuscated, or encoded.

    I looked in the footer.php file and this is what is says:

    <?php eval(base64_decode('Pz4gPHA+UG93ZXJlZCBCeSA8P3BocCBpZihpc19ob21lKCkpIDogPz48YSBocmVmPSJodHRwOi8vbGFwdG9wc2ZvcmxlYXJuaW5nLm9yZy8iIHRpdGxlPSJMYXB0b3AiPkxhcHRvcDwvYT48P3BocCBlbmRpZjsgPz48L3A+IDw/'));?>

    Try commenting that out. Just put "//" before eval and try reloading the page. If it's gone, that's it. If not remove the "//" and try something else.

    gmdavis- thanks! that worked

    johnburn- thanks. i was just about to see if there was an online encoder.

    Could I have also just deleted that code since it's the only thing in the footer?

    Thats not even the original "Powered by" so I guess you didn't violate any copyright.
