How can I make a URL look unique?
For technical reasons, certain URLs within ClickMagick—for example a Rotator Backup URL—must be unique and not be used anywhere else.
If you need to use an existing URL somewhere else that requires a unique URL, you can make any URL unique-looking by simply adding a random “query string” to the end of the URL.
For example say this is the URL you want to use, but it’s already being used somewhere else:
You can make the above URL look unique—without changing its functionality—by simply adding a meaningless query string to it, such as
If the URL already has a query string, you can simply add another
pair to the end of it to create a unique link. For example, suppose you already have this link which has the existing query string
In this case you’d just add an additional
query string parameter to the end like this:
Adding an extra query string parameter doesn’t change the functionality of the link in any way, but it does make the link appear to be different.
