I get this message when I try to edit my site (I changed my actual logon name to a generic one below):

Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_user_admin() in /home/mylogonnamehere/public_html/wp-admin/index.php on line 27

What to do?

Hello jlin,

I'm sorry your site was affected by the recent defacement attack. I've also responded to your ticket sent into I was able to replace your wp-admin/index.php page with the correct file from WordPress. The WordPress dashboard login prompt is now in your wp-admin area.

Please let us know if have any further questions or need any additional assistance.

Thank you,

Christi N.
