Ads in my written content

    I noticed over the past few days that ads have been added into my blog posts. They appear within my text content as links that can be clicked on. I have never seen this before and it is upsetting to have some of my writing turned into ad links without my permission. How can I stop these ads showing up for my readers? I don't mind ads at the bottom or side of my blog... but having them forced into my written content is upsetting.

    Thanks,
    Shannon

    The blog I need help with is theunfamiliarpath.wordpress.com.

  2. That's a malware issue. WordPress.com does not use text enhance or text link ads or pop-up ads or links in comments. If you are seeing those then that's a browser-ad-on issue, or in some cases, it's embedded into free games and/or toolbars downloaded from the internet.

    If what you are seeing whenever you save or update a post or page is an automatically added code/script block at the end of posts and pages that you can't delete then see here: Malware Targets Macs and Windows PCs http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/10/02/malware-targets-macs-and-windows-pcs/
