[resolved] [Plugin: AddThis] URL appended (3 posts)

    I have an issue with the URL of my blog http://selectitaly.com/blog I have noticed that the url in the browser automatically gets appended with #.UGm7iOPyZ2A

    Running a series of tests the cause seems to be the AddThis plugin - the URL looks normal when the plugin is deactivated, while the string gets appended again once I activate the plugin.

    Any suggestion on this would be much appreciated.

    Hi Andrea, the text appended to the URL in on purpose and allows you to track how many visitors arrive at your site from a URL that someone copied. Here's more info on the feature:

    You can disable this by unchecking the "clickbacks" checkbox in the Advanced tab of the AddThis Settings. I hope this helps.
