Support » Fixing WordPress » Strange hack or weird error!?

  • To start, my problem is that there are random letters/numbers at the end of my URLs (all except the home page).


    I did install a News/Notification bar for the the top of my site to inform visitors that a remodel is coming. I didn’t like it, I DEACTIVATED the plugin, then DELETED it properly all from the wordpress dashboard.

    Thats the only thing I can think of but I have no idea!!


    Thank you all in advance.

  • Are you using a caching plugin?

    Thanks for the response Swanson!

    I have WP Super Cache installed, earlier today I deleted all the cache a few times trying to fix it and just now I realized that caching was set to off (not deactivated).

    I now turned caching on, Deleted cache again just to make sure and still the same issue. I also disabled most plugins to see if anything helps but nothing!


    Review the plugin author’s doc’s on this and flush that cache


    Are you using the ‘AddThis’ plugin?

    I am using AddThis. I disabled it, deleted the cache and it made a difference. The link issue is gone from all the pages/post except the page in the menu labeled “Find A Pro Org”. Any idea why this plugin does this and why its still on one page?


    The last part of ADDTHIS is the links to my social media accounts in the footer. I deleted the widget completely and in Safari its still there (so is the weird URL letters/numbers). I did delete my safari cache as well.

    Everything is fine in Chrome.


    I got rid of the link issue (WP Super Cache) wasn’t showing the changes.

    Why does AddThis do that? And how can I continue to use AddThis with out the URL issue?

    @ cmccrone

    I’m not sure why it does that. You might want to consult the author. But if you frequent the forums here, you’ll see that about once every other week, someone posts the same issue.
