    i have checked the following files, and they look normal
    1. htaccess
    2. header.php
    3. footer.php
    4. (i have even changed to default theme)
    5. all redirection plugins. (i have even deactivate all the plugins)

    still doesn't work.

    please someone help me, thanks

  2. oops sorry guys,
    it is the plugin. seems the hacker changed my askimet wordpress plugin.

    will update this thread again soon.

  3. Since you are self-hosted and using the software downloaded from wordpress.ORG, you need to direct your question to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ . This forum is for users of WordPress.COM, the free hosting service, and it uses a modified multi-user version of the software which is different from what you are using and few, if any, here know anything about it.

    WordPress.com or WordPress.org? The difference.

  4. man i was so stupid. it is not the askimet. it is another plugin.
    will update this thread again soon

    oh im sorry, i guess i was to panic so i didnt realize it.

    how to delete this thread? im sorry again.

  7. Don't worry about it. Fully 30% of the inquiries we get are from people who need to be in the other forum. If you can edit the original post to set to Resolved, that would be great.

  8. done. thanks raincoaster.
