    Hello, I have a question about something my wordpress auto guessing urls. When I enter a URL for my site and I don't complete it, something is auto completing the URL and taking my browser to a random post that includes that "20" somewhere in the address. fiy, this is not my browser's feature doing this, I have tested that. something is guessing the URL I am trying to find and taking me to a post that it feels is relevant. In the past I would of course get a 404.

    I'm not sure if this is a new wordpress feature or something on my server(?). to test this, visit my site and go to any post and then chop off some of the address and you will see what I'm talking about. Or copy one of my post addresses, before you ever go to the post and remove some of the url for instance "myhost.com/brad-pit-is-a jerk" enter "myhost.com/brad-pi" and you will see what I'm talking about.

    here is my site in tinyurl forum, go have a look and please let me know what's up.
