There are no hidden / encrypted links anywhere on my themes. I have never released such a theme.
Recently one of my theme users [his name is Yannis], contacted me through my contact page.He said,
Hi, I came across a plugin called TAC (Theme Authenticity Checker) that’s supposed to reveal encrypted codes in wp themes.
They also say that we should stop using themes with encrypted codes.
Surprisingly, TAC found encrypted codes in SeaShore and in MistyLook (I was using previously).
Any comments please.
I was quite puzzled about that and then tried the plugin on my own website.
It showed an error message like this.
This error shows up on a line in my theme’s contact page template [contact.php].
This template helps in creating a contact page so that the visitors can send personal messages to the site owners.
When these messages are submitted, the contact.php file encrypts the message and then sends it as an email to the site owner.
This is not an issue at all. So if you come across this message from that plugin, it is OK to ignore the warning.
I thought I should let you all know about this.
