  • What is the link to your site? And how are you editing it?

    my site is . I edit the footer through /wp-admin/

    Can you post the edited text?

    In your style.css file what are the values for the class “sponsors”?

    It will be

    .sponsors <
    text here
    text here
    text here
    text here


    And what theme is it?

    “Can you post the edited text?” If i edit footer (doesnt matter what i do: add or delete the link) the theme doesnt work. I took the theme from The theme I try to edit is Cinematic

    .sponsors {
    text-align: center;

    Interesting, they make the theme depend on having those links in them.

    I am not sure where I stand with that, considering WP is open source. Hmmmmmmmmm

    Worst case, keep the links, but change the style.css file and make the links the same colour as the background. That way you won’t really see them.

    Good Luck.

    there is no way to take them off ? or where can i find a wp theme for Movie Trailer Website?

    Many sites that give away “free” themes, etc. set it up so they get something for their effort. If nothing else, at least their name being in the source code.

    Perhaps you should check with the folks you got the theme from.

    lines 289 – 297 in functions.php is ROT13 obfuscated code that is (at the very least)checking to see if you have removed the footer links, and disabling the theme if you have. You don’t what that theme. There appears to be no license in the theme, and yet it’s enforcing “creative commons” by spying on you.

    if(strpos($c,$l)==0){echo \'This theme is released under creative commons licence, all links in the footer should remain intact\';die;}}check_footer();'));?>

    @claytonjames did not find anything like this in functions.php

    That’s because the snippet I posted has been “decoded”.

    Cinemagic theme downloaded from, functions.php
    lines 289 – 286;

    <?php eval(str_rot13('shapgvba purpx_sbbgre(){
    $y=\'Va pbbeqvangvba jvgu:

    vs(fgecbf($p,$y)==0){rpub \'Guvf gurzr vf eryrnfrq haqre perngvir pbzzbaf yvprapr, nyy yvaxf va gur sbbgre fubhyq erznva vagnpg\';qvr;}}purpx_sbbgre();'));?>

    MY bad – you said CINEMATIC, and I checked CINEMAGIC.

    I check that one too and get back to you.

    In the Cine-MATIC theme, you will find the ROT13 “encryption” located in functions.php starting on lines 16 -33.

    eval(str_rot13('shapgvba purpx_sbbgre(){$y=\'Qrfvtarq ol <n uers="uggc://jjj.sverpnfvabf.pbz">Bayvar Pnfvab</n>.</qvi>

    <n uers="uggc://jjj.npgbef-cvpgherf.pbz/pryroevgl-tnyyrel.ugzy">Npgbef Cvpgherf</n>\';$s=qveanzr(__SVYR__).\'/sbbgre.cuc\';$sq=sbcra($s,\'e\');$p=sernq($sq,svyrfvmr($s));spybfr($sq);vs(fgecbf($p,$y)==0){rpub \'Guvf gurzr vf fcbafberq, nyy yvaxf va gur sbbgre fubhyq erznva vagnpg\';qvr;}}purpx_sbbgre();'));
    eval(str_rot13('shapgvba purpx_urnqre(){vs(!(shapgvba_rkvfgf("purpx_shapgvbaf")&&shapgvba_rkvfgf("purpx_s_sbbgre"))){rpub(\'Guvf gurzr vf eryrnfrq haqre perngvir pbzzbaf yvprapr, nyy yvaxf va gur sbbgre fubhyq erznva vagnpg\');qvr;}}'));

    You will also find this ABOVE the doctype declaration in header.php.

    <?php eval(str_rot13('shapgvba purpx_s_sbbgre(){vs(!(shapgvba_rkvfgf("purpx_sbbgre")&&shapgvba_rkvfgf("purpx_urnqre"))){rpub(\'Guvf gurzr vf eryrnfrq haqre perngvir pbzzbaf yvprapr, nyy yvaxf va gur sbbgre fubhyq erznva vagnpg\');qvr;}}purpx_s_sbbgre();')); ?>

    I didn’t bother looking any farther.

    so deleting all this will allow me to edit the footer?

    In a nutshell, No. That’s why the theme author put it there. They don’t want you removing the links in the footer, and they are using a very questionable scheme of breaking their themes if you do. You do not want to use themes of that nature.
