Tags and Pages are linking to an external site (was I hacked?) (5 posts)

    So, I changed over to self-hosting a few weeks ago and downloaded a new theme. I was just going through all my posts checking for errors that may have occurred in the transfer when I noticed a HUGE problem.

    When I click on the "PARENTING" tag in my sidebar, which is a MAIN topic area for me, it briefly opens and then immediately redirects to youtube!! (?!?!). It happens again at the following link: scroll down to the bottom and hit "next page" to see more posts. It redirects to youtube again!!


    I'm baffled and stressed out about this. I tried to find youtube in the css but couldn't, and I'm not sure how this happened or what to do. Aaargh!!

    Thanks for your help. Was I hacked or something?

    Did you noticed that redirecting appears only when post with embeded youtube is displayed?
    It's no looking like hack.
    Just check which way are you embeding youtube video.
    Turn autoembedding off to check.

    Huh, I didn't notice WHEN the redirect happens. I just started using a plugin for video uploads that looks like this: [youtube 5262355} or [vimeo 76657889hg], etc.

    Could the plugin be causing a problem? I did just notice this redirect yesterday for the first time.

    Thanks for responding so quickly.

    Never mind!!! There was one wonky embed causing a ruckus, but I found it. Thanks. :)
