On my desktop, everything is fine. I asked 3 other people to check my blog, and they didn’t see any links that shouldn’t be there. I did a complete virus scan and cleared all browsing history on the laptop, everything is fine, but the links still show. Example: http://cravingthis.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1677&action=edit Where it says: 4. Add shanks one at a time The word “add” is appearing as a hyperlink to a spam notice. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks in advance. Theme: Twenty Eleven The blog I need help with is cravingthis.wordpress.com.

Are you using any browser add-ons or plug-ins? If you are, please disable them and see if the links still show.

Hope this helps someone else with a similar problem. May 22, 2012 at 1:25 am #895073 raincoasterMember Thanks for reporting the specifics. We’ve never known what was doing this.
