Time bombed Theme destructs on editing the Footer.php
Sorry, but your chosen theme isn’t released under the GPL as they are required to be, and so is not really welcomed by the WordPress community, or deserving of support here.
I would advise you to save yourself more headaches and potential problems down the track by using that theme and just switch to another theme from a reputable developer. There are plenty of high quality free and premium GPL themes available.
1. You’re wrong, and 2. You have no idea what theme I’m talking about, and 3. You aren’t a moderator, so why are you responding like one?
I can see from a credit in the code where you obtained the theme. It is not a free GPL theme from the theme directory, neither is it one from one of the trustworthy commercial providers listed at http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/commercial/
Personally I wouldn’t touch that theme or any from that supplier with a ten foot pole and this is why: http://www.themelab.com/2009/12/08/stop-downloading-wordpress-themes-from-shady-sites/
If you download a free WordPress theme from the wordpress.org theme directory, you know that it does not carry any advertising (apart from in some cases a small easily removed link credit in the footer) and it has been checked and approved by the theme review team.
I would advise you to run TAC, Theme Authenticity Checker, a free plugin that scans themes and makes sure the theme is not harmful to your install of WP, server, etc…
Also, It is not a free GPL theme. The credit is clear as day!
Actually, I’ll guarantee that premiumwp is 100% correct. The Theme you’re working with is malware, that includes spammy footer links, footer-modification kill code, and, I’m guessing, encrypted footer code as well.
I don’t care what the name of the Theme is; I guarantee that it’s not released under a GPL-compatible license.
And as such, no support will be provided for such a Theme in this forum, as per the stated forum policy.
I would recommend starting with a Theme from the official WordPress Theme repository, rather than the crappy Theme you’re currently trying to use.
