    I suspect I have a bigger issue and it's not related to MailWizz.
    I run a query to pull in posts from my forum. The query gets the last 10 posts.
    It formats it nicely into a newsletter and I send this out.
    I have not looked at the actual content (closely) as I have been doing this for years now.
    It seems there is now either a porn link embedded, or something else not on my site.
    I attached an example of what I sent this morning.
    I scanned my database, and this info is not there.
    There is nothing on my site, or in my database about kitchen renovations (the second item).

    Anyone have any thoughts on how this got into the newsletter?
    Again, it's worse in that some people are getting porn.

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    Is this under wordpress?
    if so, did you try scanning it with a tool like wordfence to see if it finds anything malicious inside ?

    Thanks, no it is Invision Power Services forum software.
    Here is the site: https://www.pathlabtalk.com/forum/
    I have a lot of security to be able to post on the site, the software runs a spam check and I verify each member individually.
    The blue text is a clickable link to the site, the one for the kitchen goes to a 404 page on the site.

    I see. maybe you can share the code you're using to send the newsletter? (comment out sensitive info).

    Sure thing, pretty sure there's nothing sensitive here.
    It's too long, so I had to add it as a text document.

    Well, I think I found it, sorry to have troubled you.
    It seems the forum software has a new feature (that was on by default) to allow users to post before registering.
    I filtered those posts out, and all is well.
