Youtube video on page that I didn't put there

    Okay, I have a weird problem that I don't seem to be able to solve. On each post (if you click through to the permalink) a youtube video ad thing is at the bottom of the post. I didn't put it there, and it ONLY seems to be showing up in Safari. I'm not seeing it in chrome or firefox. I have NO idea what to do or how to make it go away, or what it is, and it's really freaking me out. :(

    Anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it?

    Page is hotpinkmanolos.com

    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is hotpinkmanolos.com.

    Sorry, I'm not self bumping, I just wanted to amend that it does not seem to be on ALL posts, but I have found the rogue video on posts dated 9/29, 9/20, and 8/31, I havent' looked much farther than that.

    Again there is no code that I put in to have this video there and it only seems to appear when I view the page from Safari.

  3. I don't know if that's the case or not but it's possible that what you are seeing is a video placed on the blog by WordPress.com. Have you enabled "fun mode"? If you enable it, you will see a checkbox that says "This post is super awesome" whenever you create or edit a post. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/surprise-me/

    As you did not place the video in these post I suggest you contact Staff You will have to contact Staff. Here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.

  4. I just thought of something else. Is the video and advertisement? WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read features page, or advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in and as many use browsers with Adblookers when logged out they may not realize they are there at all. The only way to get rid of all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs is to purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.
