    Create.aspx parameters: rnd and rndo

    Hello Umbraco Colleagues,
    I have questions regarding creating content in the back office.

    I would like to use create.aspx in a custom section to create content nodes. Umbraco uses a url similar to the following:

    My questions:
    What are the query string parameters "rnd" and "rndo" used for?
    Do I need them?
    How do I determine what values to use for them? (they seem to be different every time)

    Thanks, any help is appreciated.
    David Hill

    Hi David,

    I don't think these matter, you should be able to use any value.

    I believe they're currently random numbers used just for cache busting, so the browser always thinks a new page is loading and thus never loads these pages from the cache.  It used to be a bigger problem but I don't think it's as prevalent these days.

    So, I'd just pass in your own random numbers and see how that works.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks, Tom. It helps a lot.

    I have also tried it without passing either of those params and it seemed to work fine as well.

    I do think I will pass in my own random numbers just to be safe.
