People enconding footer.php? (2 posts)

    I just noticed there has been a group of people removing the author's original footer and encoding/adding affiliate links, cookie stuffers and more.

    Is there a site where I can get themes that are verified by moderators/administrators?

    Also, beware of this site http://wpthemesarchive.com/

    They have a lot of them there, they also put their link on the footer occasionally. Do not download

    There is always the official WordPress theme repository at http://themes.wordpress.net/

    I've noticed an increase in the number of 3rd party gallery sites that employ the tactic you speak of. While many of the times they do it simply in an attempt (a feeble one albeit) to protect links it can also be used for more nefarious purposes. The bottom line is to STAY AWAY from this garbage. It's also good practice to examine ALL files before you upload them to your server.
