Hacked site, I thought it was fixed (3 posts)

    So I got hacked last week and the WP half of my site went down. I tried fixing the htaccess file to no avail, but when I just deleted it like some folks recommended, I got access to the admin panel and the front page again, so I thought it was fixed. But it was brought to my attention that all the archive pages were unavailable... my website is here: http://aquapunk.co

    My text blog posts seem to be working ok, so is it something wrong with a WP file, or would it be the webcomic plugin I'm using that got messed up and I didn't fix?

    I'm going to try using a database backup, but one common thread I've noticed in all the hack advice is that it always seems to result in spam, redirects, malware, and dirty sites, but I've not had any of that. I just got a 500 error that wouldn't go away until I deleted htaccess. That sort of hacking would only seem worth it if the person just wanted to take my site down for a little bit?

    ETA: Everything seems to be fine now... it may just have been a host issue.
