?stage=Stage suffix

SilverStripe 3.x

Just set up a new SS site and all my links have ?stage=Stage at the end. I have no idea where this comes from but I’d love to know how to get rid of it.

It’s because you are in stage mode when the page is build. Remove the ?stage=Stage from your current URL and it should be gone.

The latest release of 3.x should fix this behaviour, so the suffix doesn’t persist between pages.

It kept coming back nonetheless! ?stage=Live made it go away (credits: muskie9 on slack)

D’oh, yes, you’re right, it should be ?stage=Live, it’s only in the latest release this change was made.
