    If I click my usual link for this site in my favourites it brings loads of advertisments / links up at the top of the screen. Seems to be something to do with the /index.php bit ... it does the same iif I click on show unread posts or show new replies to your posts.

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    Yes, looks like the site has been partially hacked :( There's a 4-5 screenfuls of crap showing up now on most pages.

    I'm sure the site guys are aware of or soon to be aware of it and will work hard to get it fixed.

    This is a sample from the top of the page I get but there are loads of these links, I have to scroll down quite a lot to get to the page. Has the website been hacked or something?

    It seems to be the "index.php" file that has been hacked, I say this as a complete html/css/php no-hoper, but I've found that if you remove the "index.php" from the web address bar and reload the page you should load the page as it should be.

    Try removing the "index.php" from the url and see if that works for you.
