Today, it was pointed out to me that in the source of the home page there were a bunch of spam links.
They didn't show up in any browser I tried, but if I looked at the source, the links were there. A bunch of 'em. I had checked the source before when people were saying they were seeing spam on the home page, but nothing was there. Which was odd.

So yeah, sorry about that guys.

But at any rate, it's been removed.
If it happens again, I may look into a different blogging script to insert into the site. This one may not be secure.


I missed the threads... probably could have found it right away. Someone did that to my blog too and it sounds like the exact same thing.

What's weird, is that when I was told there were spam links on the home page the first time, I checked the source code and there wasn't anything there and I wasn't seeing anything on the live page. But then the other day, it was pointed out to me again and the code was in the source this time.
Odd.
