    What on earth is this? #sthash.CH8sQX3O.dpbs And how do I get rid of it?

    Everything was fine before, and the settings of my permalinks is set to

    And while it does add the post name, it also adds the really weird set of numbers and symbols and looks awful!

  • @amiciarai,
    This is not something to worry about, it’s usually added by social sharing plugins to be able to track which content gets shared.

    I guess it only appeared when you activated a social sharing plugin or changed its options or even updated an existing one which had this new feature.



    You are absolutely right! It was the ShareThis plugin! As soon as I deactivated it everything was back to normal!

    Thank you so much for the fast reply and the wonderful advice!

    you’re welcome 🙂
    I had this issue before and struggled until I found out about it.
