Have you ever been locked out of your blog?

    Have you ever been locked out of your blog?

    I have several blogs on Wordpress.com. Recently I started one with a group of people, and so far I have been the only one to write in it, and I've written several posts. It's a metaphysical blog, and talks about everything from divination to crystals, to meditation and so on. This morning I went to check the stats and it said that I had been locked out because of some questionable content.
    I have seen graphic sex blogs, blogs on very specific pagan and other religious practices, plenty of blogs on tarot and crystals - I'm not understanding what could have possibly been posted that's an issue

    Contact them at: support@wordpress.com

    If you have a text link of any kind, it is not allowed. They will shut you down with no explanation.  You are better off having your own site on blogger, Weebly, Host Gator, the paid WordPress.

      Thank you so much! What's a text link? as in, a link that's litterally copied and pasted that's a URL? I'm not a fan of blogger and had little luck with Weebly, but I'll look into Host Gator. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Only when I could not remember my password so far.
    I would run a root check with my antivirus and if you do not have an antimalware then I would get one. It catches things - such as malware and trojans - which your antivirus cannot.

      Thanks for the advice! A red warning came up on my dashboard saying I had concerning content and to contact them. I reported the problem and just received and email saying that it was a glitch and should not have happened smile

    There can be two reasons you could get locked out of your blog due to iThemes Security. If You have set iThemes Security to lock out users who cause too many 404 errors or You have set iThemes Security to lock out a username after too many failed login attempts. Check the info http://www.nosegraze.com/not-get-locked … -security/
