    Hi All!

    I have a wordpress portfolio website and today, my surprise, I visit my site which is now littered with errors! All of the links and text on the main page show up but it seems that the images and theme styles (Workaholic) have been stripped away!

    I also notice at the bottom of my browser that my website (www.vernonv.com) is redirecting/trying to connect to another website (www.gabriellerosephotography.com) which I've never seen before. I checked my htaccess file in my site's root folder and it has the link to that website which leads me to believe that I've been hacked. There's also another htaccess file in the wp-content folder which contains the same code shown in the following link.

    I'm not very familiar with the htaccess file and I'm afraid to make any changes for fear of worsening things. If anybody can suggest a solution I would be very grateful for it!

    Thanks!
