Version 1.x and up

When navigating from page to page that is served by 4DBK, you will notice that 4DBK places extra characters at the end of the html page. These extra characters are used for maintaining the users' session, so that their login and shopping cart information may be carried with them while they navigate your site. Sometimes, these extra characters are a burden, such as when you want to reference outside pages from your server. Any page that ends in ".htm" or ".html" will have these extra characters appended to it. To have 4DBK omit these extra characters, simply append an "-" character to the end of the file extension.

For example:

This link in the actual file

<a href="https://www.myserver.com/defaultpage.html"> some default page of another server</a>

Would look like this from the browser

<a href="https://www.myserver.com/defaultpage.html&&2bBB6_0pbDuox2
NvxMpoLGxolobo24ValuSalkkaWT_a&&2bBB6a"> some default page of another server</a>

If the "-" character is appended, then this link

<a href="https://www.myserver.com/defaultpage.html-"> some default page of another server</a>

Would look like this from the browser

<a href="https://www.myserver.com/defaultpage.html"> some default page of another server< /a>
