    The marquee is run by a piece of free Javascript...

    Yep we were hacked the day before OFSTED turned up!

    We are hosted externally and we managed to get the site back up again from backups.

    The problem i have is I have no idea how to clean it all up again.

    I'm hoping to move to Joomla 1.6 over the summer.

    Download the entire site's source into a folder on your machine... load up Dreamweaver (if you have it), set up a site in there, with your local path as the site source, then you can do a find/replace on the entire site's source code for the common URL found in the links... remove it manually from each page... check all include files also as it's probably it's included in a header file that is used sitewide, hence it ends up on every page.

    Was any work done to resecure the site after restoring from backups? Otherwise, the hole they exploited is still there waiting to be exploited again... Personally, I'd abandon waiting til summer and move to the latest Joomla release asap to ensure any recent security holes are closed.

    Your next problem is: is that source code featured in the backups? If not, the site's been hacked again since to put it there. If they could inject code into pages, you need to check all form inputs as it could be logging and forwarding all login credentials used... potentially you've got a huge security risk there. Either find and fix the issue, or take the site offline temporarily until you can get a GUARANTEED clean site up there.

    Your two ski pictures on the front page desperately need to be resized! They are currently full res and a 3.3 meg download each.

    I installed all the updates that were not installed, which included a security fix that I didn't know should have been installed.
    1.6 has some quirks so working through them before committing!

    Judging from the design I'd say by using the bees template which comes with a font re-sizer?. I've used MakeMeAccessible module in the past but it seems to have been discontinued.

    I use Front End Font Size Adjuster by Florida Web host, which also appears to have have been discontinued. It did once work with %, px and pt, but for some reason is now broken. It adjusts the line spacing but nothing else.

    I think I still have the zip file for MakeMeAccessible and while not everything seems to work, the text adjuster seems to work ok. Send me a PM if you would like a copy.
