  • [Forum] Session URL?

    I had someone say they are seeing sessions url's on my forum and I should turn them off?

    So could someone explain to me in simple terms what a session url is, cant seem to find anything on the web, and if I should turn them off how to do it?

    thanks

    They can't be turned off. They are required for users who are not logged in or are blocking cookies.

      Here is the wikipedia explanation.

      HTTP session token

      A session token is a unique identifier that is generated and sent from a server to a client to identify the current interaction session. The client usually stores and sends the token as an HTTP cookie and/or sends it as a parameter in GET or POST queries. The reason to use session tokens is that the client only has to handle the identifier—all session data is stored on the server (usually in a database, to which the client does not have direct access) linked to that identifier. Examples of the names that some programming languages use when naming their HTTP cookie include JSESSIONID (JSP), PHPSESSID (PHP), and ASPSESSIONID (ASP).

      To see what the session id looks like in vBulletin, log out of your forum, edit your browser to not allow cookies and then browse your forum. Look at the URL you will see the session id in the URL.
