I set up my site's permalinks to display post name.  Yet, I noticed recently that when you first go to my site, the correct url displays for a second and then there is an extension added to the url.  How do I turn that off?

i.e. what SHOULD display
https://nsitedesigns.com/contact-nsite-designs

what displays

Are you using a caching plugin or CDN?

I am not using CDN.
Site works good on private window.
I cleared cache and still see problem.
Not sure what a caching plugin would be.

W3 Total Cache?
WP Super Cache?
server caching via Varnish or similar?
WordFence with performance enhancement turned on?

It's the Addthis URL tracking codes feature, specifically the 'address bar' one. There are instructions for disabling it, halfway down this page:

Thanks Lucas.

That is weird that it would suddenly appear?  If I disable tracking code, I suspect that it won't track any more.  What a crazy setup!

I checked on the advanced settings on AddThis and there is a place you can uncheck Address Bar Shares.  See screenshot.  I did this and it worked!addthis.gif
