I'm hoping someone can help me with our WP 2.1 site.
Everything was running great 3 days ago. My wife and I went away for an extended weekend and when we return two things are happening which cannot be the result of something we did because we were not here.
The first is, in FireFox we are getting the following error in the sidebar between the section called "Archives" and "Resource Links". This is what we see:
WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '^([adObis]):/' at line 1]
SELECT * , IF (DATE_ADD(link_updated, INTERVAL 120 MINUTE) >= NOW(), 1,0) as recently_updated FROM wp_links LEFT JOIN wp_link2cat ON (wp_links.link_id = wp_link2cat.link_id) WHERE 1=1 AND link_visible = 'Y' /^([adObis]):/�_id = 7 ) ORDER BY link_name ASC
And the second issue is we are unable to get our webpage to load in Internet Explorer. IE just seems to be caught in a loop and never displays our page but all other sites I tried were fine, including another site I own which is also WP 2.1 driven.
Please Help. I do not know SQL and I am at a total loss how to fix this or what has caused it. Have I been hacked?
