Strange Pop Up "1" on WordPress


Yesterday (or perhaps the day before), a strange popup appeared whenever my site loads. It just says "1" and asks you to press ok before the video begins to autoplay and the rest of the site loads.

I'm not sure why it appeared. I've updated my plugins and it hasn't resolved. I wrote to Vimeo (the host of the embedded video) and they said it has nothing to do with them.

I need to know

- what is causing it?
- how to resolve it?

You can see it in person here:

I looked at it in Firefox and Safari with the same results.

It's inside this file:

just a bad debug practice using alert(1).

Thank you! I had given admin rights to the theme developer who was trying to repair a parallax issue so this make sense! Can you explain how to turn that off? I'm not afraid of code, I just need some help.

Dbranes comments:

Just remove the


line from that javascript file.

Liz comments:

First, I love you.

Second, its resolved... thanks!!!

Dbranes comments:

Great you got it resolved ;-)


Navjot Singh answers:

Try disabling your plugins 1 by 1 and see when the popup goes. That might narrow things down.

Liz comments:

Thanks for your suggestion. I did that first and was surprised it didn't help. :(
