Support » Themes and Templates » Footer Changes – Yes, another encoded footer – Question/Help

  • Resolved gmbower


    Yes, I know… I should not use themes that have crap littered in them, and I could not agree with you more.

    However, that being said, I really like the look of this theme at my website, but I do not want spam junk in it.

    I am looking for some help. I saw a few weeks ago, LenK posted for a guy some new code that would fix his problem. I am no CSS coder, I can remove what I don’t like, change the basics, but adding back in is not in my playbook. I have tried the view page source & replace the footer.php with that, but it did not work.

    Can anyone help me rid this theme of this vile work, without taking up too much of their own time?

    Thanks much,


    Moshu – Please delete my original post (from 13 hours ago). I am not sure why nothing came up.

  • Topic resolved… Found a download for the theme with no obfuscated code!!!


    Did I hear someone calling me? 😉 Glad to see you got it worked out.

    One point though. Although you now “get it” many others seemingly do not so allow me once again to repeat myself: People please DO NOT use themes containing obfuscated code. In most cases it is merely a tactic to prevent noobies from removing the spammy footer links but not necessarily so. It could easily be something more sinister. You guys who upload encrypted code to your server without knowing what it is or what it does are playing with fire.

    What about those of us that don’t know what those codes mean? I am trying to get the footer removed from my pages on my site and don’t know what any of the codes mean to remove it. I used the mt-dark theme from the word press list. Is it safe if it is on the site?
