    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>

    <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(); ?>
    <div id=”page”>

    I have no idea where that came from – but I’ve deleted it and we’re back to normal…


    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 site that they suspect that the pages are hacked:

    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 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.

    I came across the INCLUDE_DATA message

    the site has been hacked

    you will need to do more than just remove code from header
