I am using webform for contact us page.

Once form is successfully submitted,I have redirected it to thank you page.

But the URL of thank you page keep adding webform sid, like given below


I want to hide the sid from URL

I am using custom redirect URL in form settings


  • First of all, to try to figure out a solution - why do you want to remove it? – MiSc Sep 29 '16 at 10:54
  • I dont need that – vishal shah Sep 29 '16 at 11:00
  • Sid is there to get submission information on confirmation page, drupal.org/node/1616014. as asnwered below better to redirect to custom confirmation page. – arpitr Sep 29 '16 at 11:50
  • @arpitr...that is also not working – vishal shah Sep 29 '16 at 11:57

If you Use any of the two then it wont show SID in URL.


enter image description here

  • I used custom url as 'thank-you' but it still showing as www.example.com/thank-you?sid=12345 – vishal shah Sep 29 '16 at 11:55
  • can you create a URL other than thank-you and check? – NTT Sep 29 '16 at 11:58
  • That will not change anything since thank-you isn't a reserved word – vishal shah Sep 29 '16 at 12:00
  • Thats completly strange, as I tested with both, it doesnt show sid in URL. – NTT Sep 29 '16 at 12:02
  • cleared cache as well – vishal shah Sep 29 '16 at 12:04

No you can not ignore the "sid" from submission confirmation page.

Yes you can create a separate thank you page and redirect to that page.

You can install this modules:

-> rules

-> webform rules

Now add a rule that redirects the user to your URL after a webform submission.

Using hook_form_alter(), and set the override there.

function mymodule_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
  if ($form_id == 'my_form') {
     $form['#submit'][] = 'my_submit_handler';

function my_submit_handler(&$form, &$form_state) {
  $form_state['redirect'] = 'home';
