    all of a sudden, at the top of my site there is a line of text which says:

    INCLUDE_DATA

    it's not been there before - and I've touched nothing (honestly)

    any ideas???

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

    OK - here's what I did.

    checked all plugins one by one - no change

    I use the default theme so I switch to Classic - problem goes away (of course so does all my styling)

    I switch back

    I upgrade to 2.9.1 - problem persists

    If I check the source code on the page I can sse this line of text - it's right there after the end tag of the head section.

    How did it get there? I have no idea...

    I also have no idea where to go in my theme files to edit this line out.... any pointers would be most welcome - I look at the various files in the theme editor and I can't see where the head section is generated... (?)

    // </style>
    </head>INCLUDE_DATA

    <body>
    <div id="page">
    //

    this is the source code from the page....

    Have a look at your header.php file.

    Anything suspicious looking there? If you've not changed anything, well...

    and there it was!

    //
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    </head>INCLUDE_DATA
    <body>
    <div id="page">
    //

    I have no idea where that came from - but I've deleted it and we're back to normal...

    curious

    thank you for that - I had not looked at the header.php since I had thought that it was for the header area only

    Someone wrote on the wordpress.com site that they suspect that the pages are hacked: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/possible-hijacked-pages

    I'm curious to know if anyone has any more information on the origin of this issue.

    I came across the INCLUDE_DATA message on one website for a friend two days ago, glad for the tips on this post about header.php because I could edit out the hacked changes, one thing though, I had 400 links embedded into the site linking to http://word.op.org/ all movie downloads, anyone else had this? Is it a problem with the theme, WordPress or ISP? I'm up to date with allplugins and WP version.
