When I view my blog, it shows up for a few seconds - and then forwards to this weird website, that I've never heard of.Not everybody is aware of the dangers of adding non Google developed code, to their blogs.
Unlike the blog hijacks from the past couple years, the "pagesinxt" / "ripway" hijacks being reported have no consistent diagnosis.
- We have not yet observed a consistent host feature, such as "falling snow" (from 2010).
- Some hijacking code, when found, is part of the template HTML.
To find this latest hijack, you'll need to start by viewing the blog in question, using a text only browser, or proxy service. I, personally, use several products.
- hpHosts vURL is a text only browser, that runs as a stand alone application.
- Rex Swain's HTTP Viewer is a standard in browser tool that I use.
- Lingo4you HTTP Web-Sniffer is an alternative to Rex Swain.
The approach here is multi-phasic.
- Of course, backup the template, before starting.
- Load the blog, in question, in the browser of your choice.
- Do a simple text search for "pagesinxt" and for "ripway".
- You'll see several different possibilities.
- The search may reveal the hijacking code in an HTML gadget. You can use the "Pages Elements" / Design tab (Classic GUI), or the "Layout" wizard (New GUI), and remove the offending gadget.
- The search may reveal the hijacking code in the template HTML. You'll have to use the Template Editor, and remove the offending lines of code.
- You may need to bypass the Blogger menu structure, to directly access the Blogger wizard needed, if trying to use the Blogger menus is also a problem.
- Clear browser cache, before checking for success.
- And always backup the template, again, after completing this task.
If you want more detailed help for identifying or removing your personal hijack, please start a new discussion, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, state the URL of your blog, and state what URL the blog is redirecting.
