    It’s weird that this thing popped up today, on this one site, of the 15 I manage. I tried to find the issue using the forum search bar, but only got things about people installing a similar thing on the widget sidebar. I have not seen ads on any of my other sites. I would like to remove it, but the “x” does not remove the banner.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    The blog I need help with is artmassagepdx.com.

    Please check in your widgets > Appearance > Widgets
    Have you activated this widget Widget Internet Defense League?

    As far as I can tell the code might be this one:

    <script type=”text/javascript”>
    var _bftn_options = { animation: ‘banner’ }
    </script>
    <script src=”//widget.battleforthenet.com/widget.min.js” async></script>

    From https://www.battleforthenet.com/

    But how it got on your blog is beyond me.

    Wow, that was fast! Thanks for the quick attention, TT. I do have the Internet Defense League widget active, or on that site, but it has been there and on various other sites, and nothing like this ever showed up.

    I just removed the Internet Defense widget, and voila, the banner is gone. That’s a bummer, but whatever…

    Thanks,
