Someone has hacked your website and edited the index.php of the isis admin template with the following code in the head

Code: Select all

  <style type="text/css">
html { display:none }
  </style>

Hi, thanks for the answer
I tought it was a failsafe protection of joomla.

Now i can login but i can't edit / save articles.

What could be causing this ?

p.s.
there are some errors into the console:

Solved:

It was an error in a .htaccess file with a rule suddenly introduced by an update/plugin or banned by the host.

I had to comment it out adding a # and enabling a failsafe protection from the host.

Nor hacks nor joomla security involved.
