    Hello,
    I am using Nightlife 1.0 and can't figure out what is causing or more importantly how to get rid of the symbols I am seeing in the left column. http://www.douglasweaver.com/blog There is one near the "search" which is // and then further down the column it is >> repeated. I have searched the forums but my knowledge on what is causing and how to fix is weak. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    It's a background image. style.css:

    #l_sidebar li {
    background:url("images/sidetitle.gif") repeat #E5E5E5;
    list-style:none outside none;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Hi irie5000. Are you still here?

    While I was looking at your site I noticed the footer is cut off. I checked your source code to see why. Becoming more curious I checked your style sheet to see where you got that theme from. I see the original version of that theme was designed by Brian Gardner and was available at performancing.com. They don't seem to offer it as a download anymore.

    To cut to the chase, I suspect you downloaded it from amazingwordpressthemes.com which is a shady site. I downloaded Nightlife from that site and can see why you cut the footer off. The theme is injected full of crap.

    The file footer.php inserts their spammy links into the footer. The file also calls an external file located at amazingwordpressthemes.com/wp-url.php which is hidden by CSS.

    The file functions.php contains code which attempts to insert their spammy link directly into your database.

    I took the liberty of "sanitizing" those files and uploaded them to the WordPress pastebin. If you're interested you can get them by clicking the following links ...

    footer.php
    functions.php
