Related problems? Spam, Open in New Window not working... (3 posts)

    Not sure what to do or how to "fix" this issue... A few days ago I stopped receiving any spam on my site (I was getting 100+ per day prior) and now in SOME of the areas where I'm using Open in New Window for links that "function" is not working. In posts, it doesn't work and for some of my menus (all of which have the option turned on) it is not working.

    I've had this problem before and reinstalled WordPress and the problems went away and back to how I expect things should work....

    Now one would not normally complain about not getting any spam but every other time this has happened there's been some issue with the blog so I needed to do something....

    Now, the Open in New Window option isn't working, I've checked target="_blank" is in place...

    I obviously don't know if the problems are somehow interrelated, I just know no spam and intermittent Open in New Window links...

    This is not a new blog... 261 posts over the last nearly three years...

    Thanks for your help!

    1. Deactivate all plugins and see if it makes any difference.
    2. Switch over to Twenty Eleven theme to see if the problem is theme-specific.
    3. Check for malware using a tool like:

    Thanks Krishna,
    I'll have to give the plugins a try...

    I'm using Twenty Eleven, I've changed the fonts in the css files and the font color and added some meta to the header file and use my own images in the header... otherwise...

    Thanks for the Malware checker, all checked out OK.
