It appears there is something wrong with many of my index.html files when they hit the cPanel. Not all the files appear corrupted but only two or three subfiles within a site are not. The indexes for each website as well as many files in the individual web pages all appear to have this code at the end.
I offered to delete my files off the cPanel since I can easily republish in RW. The server tech suggested I only delete my main sites and republish it which I did (leaving two addons alone) but that doesn’t seem to fix the problem.
When he showed me how to view the actual code (I was downloading the index which didn’t give me much info!), I noticed that at the bottom of each site index was the following information. (I may be jumping on the wrong horse, but I think the rw refers to Rapidweaver.)
_rwObsfuscatedHref0 = “mai”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref1 = “lto”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref2 = “:pu”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref3 = “bli”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref4 = “she”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref5 = “r@s”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref6 = “ade”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref7 = “rra”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref8 = “pub”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref9 = “lis”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref10 = “hin”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref11 = “g”;var _rwObsfuscatedHref = _rwObsfuscatedHref0+_rwObsfuscatedHref1+_rwObsfuscatedHref2+_rwObsfuscatedHref3+_rwObsfuscatedHref4+_rwObsfuscatedHref5+_rwObsfuscatedHref6+_rwObsfuscatedHref7+_rwObsfuscatedHref8+_rwObsfuscatedHref9+_rwObsfuscatedHref10+_rwObsfuscatedHref11; document.getElementById(“rw_email_contact”).href = _rwObsfuscatedHref;<
Since the word obfuscate means to render obscure or unclear, I may be making a big jump, but I felt like it wasn’t a good thing to have this in my index file.
It has been suggested I rebuild my main website. As a test, I deleted the home page of a smaller site, and partially rebuilt it and then republished it. While it published the redo, the site index reveals the same type message at the bottom.
I would greatly appreciate any insights into why this code is there and how to eradicate it.
