Hi guys and all php and wordpress developer from themeforest. I wanted to know how can I encrypt my footer properly so I can protect my code an even copyrights on themes I make.

I found the Dynamic Drive Encrypter but if I use some php code in it like this:
  <div class="container">
    <p style="float:left;"><?php echo stripslashes(get_option('cloudy_copyrights_text')); ?></p>
    <p style="float:right;">By: <a href="http://bluzgraphics.com" target="_blank">Bluz*</a></p>
  </div>

It messes everything up.

So I waned to know what you professional guys use – is there a good free-software that does that or even paid software and how do I create those?

I see you’re using the following theme – http://themeforest.net/item/cloudy-2-in-1-unique-wordpress-theme/97767

Normally encrypted footers use base code, so this is different, have a look in functions.php for cloudy_copyrights_text.

Without seeing the code I can’t help much more, but I hate people who encrpt files, it’s a pain in the ass,

I don’t think you understood what I’m asking. I want to Encrypt my code properly and for that I need software recommendations.

I am not aware of any, someone else might know of some. The encryption can be done by either changing the code to bas_64 (http://www.rbl.jp/base64.php) or use a php function within another file.

I think you just have to accept the fact that a majority of customers are buying these themes to resell to a client, especially as most of your themes are more of business type themes. They don’t want your copyright info to be encrypted at the bottom. It’s going to be a pain for a lot of customers. I think it’s going to hurt you and your sales in the long run. I know you’re just asking about software to use, but I just wanted to throw that out there. Good luck :-)

I’m not so sure you are right, I know of some really top selling authors here that encrypt their theme’s footers.

but the point is it annoys people, as they don’t want “Theme created by xx, with xx cms, all rights of xxx, support forum at xxx”.

There are loads of threads of wordpress.org forums asking for decoding of encryption.

I have never encrypted a theme and never will, I add a link to my website but they are free to remove it. They have paid for the themes, if it was a free theme I can understand the reasons.

Hey Bluz sorry to hijack this thread but i bought your Imagination 10 in 1 template this past Friday and sent you a email with two questions regarding stuff that specifically about the template to which i couldn’t find an answer in documentation. Whats the status on that?

Err, with what? “Designed By:”? Not everyone wants that when they “paid” for it! What else would you need to encrypt a footer for?

Cool but how do I use it after I have an encrpted text how do I insert it properly to my footer.php file

Insert it in place of the code you encoded (inside the php tags off course)
