    Words in my post are being highlighted as links, how can I stop this?
    I think it is a form of spam. This did not happen until a profile "liked" three of my posts suddenly. Can I block this profile?

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

  2. I'm not seeing it. Can you advise on a specific post for us to look at?

  3. It's malware. As you are seeing those then that's a browser-add-on issue, or in some cases, it's embedded into free games and/or toolbars downloaded from the internet. See here for removing them: Bloggers: Beware of Adware. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/09/14/bloggers-beware-of-adware/

  4. This did not happen until a profile "liked" three of my posts suddenly. Can I block this profile?

    The two are not related.

    It is on my other blog link. I posted glory tree on accident. http://www.mybigfatbook.wordpress.com

  6. Didn't matter, still not seeing them out here in the public. As timethief said, the problem is in your own browser or on your own computer.

  7. Disable your browser add-ons, all of them. Then add them back one at a time and at a certain point, these links will appear. Then you know which add-on is doing it, and you can delete it for good.

    Thank you! I just went through and disabled everything. I didn't realize I had so many add-ons. This solved the problem!

  9. Hi there,
    You're welcome. :)
