Need Help with Encrypted Footer Code of WP Theme

I’m trying to translate some encrypted code in a WP theme I’m using. There’s some site-wide outgoing footer links that I’d like to remove for SEO purposes. I can’t figure out what the actual code being used is because it’s all encrypted.

The site is located here:

I can email the footer.php if necessary.

Advice Appreciated

What specifically are you trying to identify and/or remove?
I’ve downloaded the theme you’re using, but if you’ve made changes to the footer you can always post the contents of the file here in between [ CODE ] tags.


Thanks for the reply. I’m just trying to remove the Laptops backlink in the footer. Here is the code that is contained in the footer.php file:

<?php eval(base64_decode('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'));?>

Look forward to your reply


It might be a condition of the licence of the WP theme to leave the link in the footer, hence the reason why, I believe, it is encoded in PHP.

Hi gmr324, didn’t see your post until now, sorry. :slight_smile:

<?php eval(base64_decode('...encrypted...'));?>

The above php statement outputs this code into the page:

?> 			<!-- Footer -->
			<div id="footer">
				<div class="foot_l"><a href="" title="Wordpress theme Designed by">&nbsp;</a></div>
				<div class="foot_content">
						<li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/">Home</a></li>
				        <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>    
					<p> &copy; <a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a>. <?php if(is_home()) : ?><a href="" title="Laptop">Laptop</a><?php endif; ?></p>
				<div class="foot_r">&nbsp;</div>

				<div class="backToTop">
					<a href="#" title="Back To Top">&nbsp;</a>

				<div class="foot_info">
					<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> </p>
			</div><!-- / footer -->

<?php ?>

		<?php wp_footer(); ?>

		</div><!-- / wrapper -->
	</div><!-- / container -->       

Test to replace that php code snippet you posted with this block. It should work the same, and then you can edit the code in the footer.php.

If not; find where that php statement is inserted from and replace it there, or remove it there and instead have the edited output in the footer.php.
