    When i try to log into my blog,i see nothing except these strange characters-  on my login page.

    I have searched google and cant find any help and i dont have a clue on what to do,or where to start.

    My site loads/works fine,i just cant log into my admin.

    No you've not been hacked, I think i've had that problem before.

    What did you do just before that happened?

    Can you log into your cpanel? If so you could try to remove the plugin that you installed right before this happened.

    Try removing it and seeing what happens.

    I think this problem tends to be due to plugins (or at least it was when i had the problem).

    seems like there is some Unicode headers in the plugin file. Try to open that plugin file in notepad and delete that ""

    i had that happen before as well when i used the automatic youtube plugin and i uploaded the zip rather than the actual plugin unzipped, you should be fine if you can whm or cpanel in. good luck buddy!

    Thanks for sharing that problem,
    had it once and it developed into multiple problems.
    just had to reinstall from scratch.

    Another lesson is to always verify if a plugin is compatible with your blog and if not how to modify it before you install.


    To your success!
