I have been building a website with Wordpress and after not logging in for a while the page for the dashboard came up in a list type format that I don't know what to do with. It doesn't look at all like the dashboard I have been working in. Is there a way to restore it to the normal settings/view?

Hello Matthewdragoun,

I was able to get into your admin area to take a look and am not seeing a layout that is different than the normal WordPress 3.5.1 layout. If you like, you may send a screenshot to so I can see what you are seeing. Please comment below to let us know if you do send the screenshot so we will know it was sent.

Best Regards,
Scott M

Hello Matthew,

I took a deeper look into your WordPress issue and believe I might have found the issue. It looks like your wp-config.php file at the top had what appeared to be maliciously injected code. This was more than likely interfering with the inclusion of a CSS style sheet, causing the list like formatting you were seeing inside the admin dashboard.

I have gone ahead and removed this injection for you, and I'm running a full malware scan against your account now. I will be sending a separate email with my findings to your email on file with us once that fully completes.

Let us know if you're still seeing any display issues in the admin dashboard now.
