Random numbers added at the end of image file URL (2 posts)

    I am having trouble with WP adding random numbers at the end of image file urls. The correct file url should be http://websiteaddress.com/wp-content/uploads/image-title.jpg but after uploading the image and when I go to grab the file urls to insert into post it shows http://websiteaddress/wp-content/uploads/image-title-e1325984078874.jpg

    It adds that exxxxxxxxxx number at the end of image file urls. How do I go about getting rid of that random number at the end? I had to reupload some of the images and after reuploading this issue came up.

    Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

    Do you have any cache plugins or image related plugins installed - are you using a CDN? The exxxxxx suffix is also sometimes generated by a server cluster - a timestamp. It is used to keep files unique across multiple servers. Remove the image(s) from server(s), rename the local copy, try again. It can also be used to serialize a protected file (digital rights).
