[resolved] Strange codes appear in my themes starting with "vti", though site loads fine (4 posts)

    Hi. I recently installed the plugin Solid Code Theme Editor which enables the user to edit his templates with file tree support, which just works fine. But I was shocked when I once did not use that editor but the native editor instead, and instead of the ordinary codes in the template php files appeared weird codes, so single.php for instance contains:

    vti_encoding:SR|utf8-nl
    vti_timelastmodified:TR|10 Jun 2009 18:19:26 -0000
    vti_extenderversion:SR|12.0.0.4518
    vti_author:SR|HP\\1
    vti_modifiedby:SR|HP\\1
    vti_timecreated:TR|10 Jun 2009 18:19:26 -0000
    vti_cacheddtm:TX|10 Jun 2009 18:19:26 -0000
    vti_filesize:IR|459
    vti_cachedneedsrewrite:BR|false
    vti_cachedhasbots:BR|false
    vti_cachedhastheme:BR|false
    vti_cachedhasborder:BR|false
    vti_charset:SR|utf-8
    vti_backlinkinfo:VX|

    I contacted Dagan, the theme's author and he suggested I disable his plugin to see, and I did, and the weird codes are still there.

    I downloaded the files to my PC and from there, they looked just fine. saved them, and uploaded to the server, replacing the old files but then I got internal server 500 error.. luckily I backed up the theme's folder in the server before I did that, and I just restored it. But I am still unable to edit the templates from the native editor. I contacted my hosting (Hostmonster) and they said it is not server related.

    What could it be?
    Thanx

    It's a server issue. Those codes indicate that FrontPage extensions have been activated on your hosting. ask your hosts to deactivate them.

    Thank you Esmi. I found there was a "vti_cnf" folder inside the theme's folder which contained the same files of the theme. I deleted that, and now everything seems to be fine. But I have no idea why it happened all of a sudden.. I dont think my host (Hostmonster) suddenly activated FrontPage extensions all of a sudden.. what is it anwyway?
    BTW, I would really appreciate it if you could tell me whats causing this horizontal scroll here:
