My site was recently hacked and I have reinstalled a fresh copy of everything, with the assistance of several very smart people at GoDaddy. Thanks, guys.
In the meantime, I am starting over with a shiny new install of WordPress, and will gradually reload my short stories, and poetry that existed prior to the hack.
I am hoping no one has been harmed by these insidious hackers; we can put all this behind us.
Lesson learned — I am now taking the threat of hacking seriously and following suggestions to ensure a safe site with good passwords, regular backups, and some sort of scanning for viruses and malware.
Thanks for your patience.
