    That error is most likely from a plugin you've installed. You need to disable each of your plugins then turn one at a time to see which one is causing this.

    If you cannot log into the Admin CP then to disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    This will disable all hooks and allow you to log in properly with no hooks running.

      Also, you might want to look over any file modifications you did, make sure you did them right.

          It is in the 'includes' subdirectory of the main directory where you have vB installed.

                Go over the modifications you recently made, reverse them. You DID back up your forums before you made them, right?

                  I backup files and DB regularly. Are you saying restore the file system or the DB?

                  Modifications are a few days old. everything has worked fine till now.

                    Most likely, your files were modified, since mods aren't actually affecting this (as evidenced with you adding that line to config.php).

                    Let's go back to this:
                    What WERE you working on before this happened? This isn't an indication that your site was hacked, no, but that you've got a mod gone wrong. If turning off mods doesn't do it, look at what core files you modified.

                      I wasnt working on anything. I was looking at whos online and have been for a few days trying to catch spammers before they post porn all over. The last thing I done was add questions to the human verification system.

                        To answer your original question:
                        No, your site was not hacked

                        To get deeper into the problem, I'd suggest contacting a professional programmer and developer, because something got screwed up somewhere in your code.

                              I have backups should I restore the file system?
