Every few minutes I get an email telling me a password for a certain user has changed and I do not have users on my site and these password changes - some of them are using fowl language. I looked all over Word Press and cannot see where to contact them of the problem. I end up on their .org site and all there is there is forums and it says not to post stuff like this in the forums. Please guide me. Thank You

Hi - if you log in to WordPress, and go to Settings and General, there is a box that says membership - anyone can register. Do you have this box ticked by mistake? If so, you are allowing new users on your site.

Thank You, I did indeed have that ticked. So people had to register to be on my site? Or was it just a choice if they wanted to register they could? And next .... where can I go to see who registered? Thank You.

Hi - people don't have to register to view your site or read your content. You were allowing them to subscribe to your site and they could possibly have added or changed something.

You now need to remove them. When you are logged in, go to Users and delete the unwanted ones.

You just saved my site!!!!!! They were all in there!!! Thank You a million times over. I can't see that anything has changed on my site. I don't know how to back up my site to save it as it is each day either. Would you also know how I do that. I will be forever grateful to you. Thank You!

You're welcome! Site Support backs up your site on a daily basis, but it's always a good idea to do it yourself as well.

Thank You again. I do not have that option on my Dashboard. I will ask site support where they moved it to.

Maybe it is better you contact site support, who may be able to help you out.

I think in this case I would contact site support and ask if they have any suggestions on what your next steps should be. It sounds like you may have a hacker. You can reach site support here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Good luck, Shannon
