Why are there suddenly adverts popping up in my blog?

  1. When I checked on my latest post this morning I discovered that the four words have links attached to them, which bring up in window pop-up ads. I definitely did not permit this, and was under the impression that these kind of things were not a part of wordpress.com.

    I'm wondering if someone broke into my account and added some code to something or other. Can someone please help?

    (I'd like to add that this is literally the first problem of any kind I've had with WordPress, and I've absolutely adored my time here. Keep up the good work folks.)

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

  2. Do you perhaps use any browser add-ons/extensions? if so, please disable these and see if that resolves the issue.

    Looking forward to your reply.

  4. Thank folks, I just had a little chat with my partners granddaughter. Apparently last night she went nuts with Facebook apps on my Facebook account. When I shutdown some crap game named "Pengle" everything went back to normal. *sigh* This is why I'm glad I can't have kids, at least my puppies can't use my toys.

  5. Thanks for coming back and letting us know what was causing the problem. Perhaps this will assist some other user in the future.

  6. Thank you, both :)
