Blog Virus!!!
I am going to try to explain this the best way I know how, please bear with me.

There's a nice little blog virus lurking in Bloggy Land, if you notice your site or someone elses taking a year and a day to load there maybe a script in your template, if so DELETE IT (ONLY what I highlighted in RED)!! It looks something like this:
<*head*>< *script* src*=*' http:*//d5d1*.com/b'/*>

your code, then

<*body*><*script* src='*http://d5d1*.com/b'/*> without the (*)

Don't delete the head or body, JUST the scripts!!!

To find it press Ctrl + F, type d5d1 and it should highlight.

Be sure to PREVIEW your template before saving!!!!

Also, if you go to someone's blog that does have it, I hate to say this, but do not comment. Try to find a way to let them know, because you could get this virus, even if you deleted it from your blog already, supposedly you can get it again.

If you need more help, I'm not very html/css savvy, but I'll do my best.

hey amber,

where did you get this info? and when i try to delete it or change the word head to body, blogger says the code is invalid and won't let me change anything.

what do you think?

Amber I am totally not tech savy. I have noticed the blogs taking so long to load. Can you help me in any way? If you can I surely would appreciate it. E-mail if you'd like. Thanks!!!

i love it that you know stuff like this and how to fix it.

Blogger Amber said...

Carrie! :o) Thank you, Dawn does beautiful work!

Diana, I'm sorry if my instructions were not clear, don't change <*head*> or <*body*> just remove the scripts.

Susan, I emailed you if you need further help:)

Aisha, your welcome!

Chickadee, you know I'd much rather be making graphics then messin' with html, but somehow I always get sucked back in.
