    I have cut off all connection with wordpress, because hackers are getting into my dashboard. They even have been able to put themselves in as users. Their posts go up on my twitter and facebook pages. Thank goodness there were no Xrated ones. How are they doing this. Sometimes the piggyback their comments with a post and I don't see it, if I okay their comment by emai. I just don't know how they are getting in. I changed all my passwords.

    And I wasn't able to get my likes and followers via the wordpress site before I cut my connection. I liked having this feature. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I resolved this issue, I believe. I haven't been hacked in weeks. On my .com site, I didn't have a meta section. I found out hat if I forgot to close out my site, hackers got in by accidental invitation. It was kind of scary, because they were going into my dashboard and posting. They had all my information. I changed all my passwords, but for anyone else that's being hacked, it might be as easy as not forgetting to sign out. The meta portion in your sidebar gives them a way in. At least that was my problem.
