Solved background changed? hacked?

Post by SkateFanatic on November 5th 2010, 4:22 am

I just made my forum. Im starting to try and boost traffic to my site which would increase traffic on my forum that is linked to my webpage. So I went to check it out and the background is a bunch of repeated images or ads telling me to upgrade today for photobucket? So i jumped on here and started reading and I can't find anything. So i start thinking I was hacked? I searched the FAQ for what to do incase of being hacked and it talks about going to my general tab and selecting security tab to to a bunch of other stuff and guess what!! I have no security tab? can someone pls help me out?

Whoever created the theme your are using hosted the images on Photobucket, and Photobucket only gives you a set amount of bandwidth to use per month, so when the limit is reached they replace all that person's images with that annoying advertisement. Best thing to do is change your background or theme.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
