Spam Links in Blog Posts by Author User

Recommended Posts


I set up a new user as an Author for my blog www.stilleasierthanchemo.com and recently spam links have started popping up in her blog posts. Example: http://www.stilleasierthanchemo.com/2014-hyannis-half-marathon-for-lucas/


Spam links only show in she posts not any I as Admin post.


How do I permanently delete the spam from her posts and prevent this from happening in the future?

This is rather odd, especially as you say this only occurs when the author user posts. In my opinion, it is likely you have been hacked unless the user herself is adding them. I would recommend you contact your host and inform them of your issue and also, check all your plugins and make sure that they're up to date and have are still maintained by the author i.e. have been updated in the last year. If you have a plugin that has not been updated in over a year, then I would recommend disabling it and finding an alternative.

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me remove the author sidebar that shows on the pinsblog section, in the pinspro theme?
      This vertical one post layout is what is needed but the author info on the side needs to be removed. 
      Is there a way to achieve this?

      Hi there,
      My server provider has contacted me saying that my Pagelines website is spamming from their server. There's plenty of trojans and other viruses. I got a list from them and it's huge. Any ideas on how to fix this and how did this happen in the first place? They have already deleted some of the content from my site. Thanks.

      Hi I would like to know how to add an image for an author/user.
      Specifically I am referring to the "PostAuthor" section where the image is displayed.

      DMS v. 0.9.7 introduced a pretty cool option to show redesigned meta within the content/postloop: we can now select the default one ("Metabar Mode") or the "Author Avatar Mode".
      If I understand correctly, it's supposed to be a single/exclusive choice (ToolBox inline help: "Instead of the standard metabar (beneath post title), you can use author meta mode. This mode displays the author avatar and publish date on left.").
      But for me, the two meta modes are displayed concomitantly when the latter is selected: both the classic metabar and the new one show up (screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/m3Vs6G7DAfjY), whatever the area of the postloop (blog page, single post), whatever the scope of the option (type, local).
      Do I miss something here ;) ?

      Hi -
      I'm interested in splitting the meta bar information - keeping the date up top but moving the comments and tags (and removing the author) to the bottom.
      Is this something I can do in Pagelines Pro with DMS?
