What is up with all the PHPSESSID links at site?
« on: August 17, 2015, 07:36:04 pm »
I see it in all links

I login and then go to main page and have this link.
http://calendarofupdates.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=dk2rr6l2nh6cvjjvhkp397eul7&

I click around and need to login again and the main page link is now changed.
http://calendarofupdates.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=tp3lp1sgjucho9op7215vnr0v1;

Now I do not need a cookie because your using the PHPSESSID links at site but it's is not working right and bookmarks gets screwed up.

I just had the same thing at http://www.landzdown.com/index.php?topic=56448.0 and posted and as I was clicking and getting info to post they seem to have changed the site links and now I got to have a cookie again.
So guess this was a Simple Machines thing.

But it seems to effect saying links so if you save links and make bookmarks then later they links are no good.

Guess that is why.

There was a hardware failure on the server that LzD is hosted on so I suspect that it is related to that.

So looks like this is not the first time.

You can remove the PHPSESSID from the URI prior to saving, I'll have a look and see if there's anything I can do to stop it affecting links in the meantime (other than the session expiring, it shouldn't affect links at all)

To remove the PHPSESSID from the URI prior to saving will not save the page you want to bookmark either.

See what landzdown.com did to fix things.

Hi, Steve. 

Even though SpyDie has a daily backup of LandzDown, we lost some things, including add-ons, with the host hard drive failure.  One of the add-ons was Pretty URLs which he re-installed today.

Unfortunately, that along with the "Search engine friendly URLs" option in the ACP (negates the need for that mod btw ;) ), only works on Apache etc, not IIS :(

It is a two way street.  We can learn from one another.
