Remove ?i=1 from your Domain

Recommended Posts

Want to remove that pesky parameter from your domain? Well, now you can! With the simple help of .htaccess, you can have your pure domain back! Just follow these few steps.

  1. Connect to your Webserver via File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  2. Go into your sites primary directory
  3. Modify, or Create the .htaccess file
  4. Use this code snippet and Save the file
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} .
RewriteRule ^([^.]*)$ /$1? [L,NE,R=301]

Vwolla! That harmless parameter is not to be seen anywhere.


Note: This method will erase all GET parameters. In case you want to install plugins or scripts, to your website, and they will not work, I recommend removing the content (Code Snippet) from your .htaccess document.

Do you mean I cant use Wordpress with this?
And does the bot verification will still works?

1. Any script using GET parameters will disable certain features of scripts, determined by the function of the scripts. You can try using Wordpress. If there are any errors or bugs, troubleshoot the situation and remove the snippet from the .htaccess - if you believe it's the case.

2. It doesn't necessarily matter. You can easily add your own human verification. Takes at least 2-3 minutes of your time.

Willn't resetting it delete everyone's accounts on web host?

Well, web host accounts will not delete, but the forum's data will. As in all the users in my community will no longer have topics they've previously created. I already have everything set up for that in my documents. Text me over Discord for more information -.-
