Decoding Encoded WordPress Theme Footer

Intact Encoded Footer -Old
past footer

Changed Decoded Footer – Now
Try this only if you have rights to do that. Few days back i got license and note from Ophelia Nicholson, who designed this blog, so now I am allowed to change the footer. I already did this, Read the post here

So here is how to Decode Encoded WordPress Theme Footer

Process 1.
In site’s theme folder find index.php, then find the line that says <?php get_footer(); ?>. Above and below it add special text like this:

<!– Encoded Code Start –>
<?php get_footer(); ?>
<!– Encoded Code End –>

Now visit your site as normal, view page source ( in Firefox Right Click Select -> View Page Source), and copy the HTML between those two markers. Now Find the footer.php in your theme folder, select all existing junk encoded code and replace with the copied code. Remember to insert the before tag.

Simple & Easy.

Process 2.
Use this site, paste your encoded code and decode to base64

    I don’t know if any one have notified you but when I was searching for changing footer colour I landed on your blog and it opened as “fetch as robot”. The webpage did not open completely and everything on the page was messed up.
    However my query was if you can help me on how to change the colour of the footer in freshlife wordpress theme.

    Any good sounded person can remove this encryption. Do you know how make it like phoca ?
    Phoca is a plugin for Joomla , their encryption is so strong that no one has yet removed their footer links

    Hello Asif, I found your wordpress footer post very helpful when decodeing a previous footer. Now
    I have a slightly different footer that i can’t decode.

    I did the following steps:
    1. change index.php to;

    2. View page source.

    3. Try to decode the footer php

    I couldn’t decode the footer text so i’m stuck now…

    Hope you can help.
