[osCommerce] Adding session id first time into store.

Postby buskerdoo » Thu Sep 03, 2009 9:20 am

It appears that the first time someone comes into the store they are getting bad session id added to the url. I can only reproduce it if I totally clear the cache on my browser, etc.

I've noticed a big increase in the 404 error pages in analytics.

Examples of pages showing up:

Notice sometimes it's using a ? and other uses %.

This was already discussed a couple of days ago in [osCommerce] MSU adding weird Session ID number one time thread with you and the problem is in your buggy osCommerce modifications.

That's not exactly very helpful: "buggy osCommerce modifications" ?? I didn't have weird ses id's before? Is there a way to get rid of these or strip them off?

I started a new three because I thought all was working but now we have enough analytics data to see there is still a problem.

You have had Session IDs in the past like you do now. You can turn it off completely in osCommerce admin panel (however it does not fix your buggy MODs).
