Do you even understand your own license which you provide with the theme files? It says you can not encrypt your WordPress code because it is Open source. Encrypting the code is against WordPress license.

Whoa, take it easy man… I didn’t encrypt any of my WP codes or files. Theme package already includes every source code and it doesn’t violate the general WP license. Anyway, thanks for pointing that out. :)

@IndustrialThemes – That won’t be a problem. :)

UXbarn, Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound rude. I just said in general.

p.s using base64 to encode parts of code isnt against WordPress’s license which is GPL, Open Source is a philosophy not a license

the theme check plugin marks it for the WordPress.org site because generally base64 is used in malicious ways like embedding links in the footers etc…

Hi everyone,

When I used Theme-Check plugin to check my theme, it gave me many warnings of base64_encode() like following:

WARNING: Found base64_encode in the file [file name]. base64_encode() 
is not allowed.

And almost file names listed there are from OptionTree plugin that I used for creating the theme options and meta boxes. I also used base64_encode() for my purpose at some parts.

So, I’m not sure what to do to resolve these warnings about base64_encode(). Could you give me any advice?

Thank you :)

Many thanks!
