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 :)

Disregard this “warning” notice. This notice is not important for theme and wordpress operation. :)

Just out of curiosity, did your theme get approved with these warnings? I’m getting ready to submit a theme with these warnings and I would like to know if the reviewer is going to care about it. Thanks!

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.

I can’t speak for the OP, but I’m not encrypting any of the theme code – this is just used for a small part of the framework. It doesn’t hide or obscure any of the theme code or anything like that :)

There shouldn’t be any problem with that. My theme uses OT, got all those warnings, but is still up for sale. Focus on all the other errors :)

@IndustrialThemes Sorry, I just replied to UXbarn’s post and now I realized that it was an old post :)
