I have recently, last Friday, updated my blog. I’m trying to utilize the tagging features that have been recently added to WordPress. For some reason the tags aren’t showing up in my theme. WTF?
If I said I was pissed-off that would be a gross understatement. I have been fighting blog spam for the entire 4+ years I’ve been running Erik’s… Hmm… Up until this past weekend I only had to fight two types of spam: comment and trackback.
What I just went through was much more then comment spam. This time my blog was hacked via a bug in the WordPress blogroll/link code, specifically a bug in wp-admin/link.php. I tried a number of things on my end, none of them stopped the attack. Finally, I looked for help on the WordPress forums. That was the best move I made in all of this. Yesterday I posted something there explaining my problem and by today at lunch there was a WordPress patch that fixed my problem.
A BIG FAT THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HELPED ME OUT. Let me stress to all WordPress users out there…. Upgrade to the current version, and stay up-to-date.
