    Sounds like a php configuration issue. There's an option to append the session id to all urls and it sounds like that's turned on. The name escapes me right now, but it's documented at php.net.

    Thanks I checked my other site that are hosted on the same server and all my php generated links have the PHPSESSID appended to the link. Looks like I'm gonna have to contact support.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Isn't it session id? Just a security thing. Try putting in your users ip address into the field. That way if someone does something vulgar you can track it back to them.

    Yes, it's as Heyder outlines.

    A visitor accessing your web site is assigned an unique id, the so-called session id. This is either stored in a cookie on the user side, or is propagated in the URL.

    The session support allows you to register arbitrary numbers of variables to be preserved across requests. When a visitor accesses your site, PHP will check automatically (if session.auto_start is set to 1) or on your request (explicitly through session_start() or implicitly through session_register()) whether a specific session id has been sent with the request. If this is the case, the prior saved environment is recreated.
