Is it not allowed to remove footer ? I came across a wordpress theme in google and decided to use it. After setting up everything nicely with 30+ pages, and ++ posts, i found the footer was not editted and decided to edit it. I tried editing in the footer.php and the front page shown an error message, that kind that was type by the author. Then i realise there were codes encoded in the function files. I tried decoding it and failed. They say error in line 3. Now i couldnt even access my admin login.
Would someone help me decode and how to edit the footer with author error msg being shown?
Thank you in advance. I am panicking now.
<?php eval(gzinflate(base64_decode('...'))); ?>
