Adding random characters/numbers to a link


I’m searching for a way to make tens, hundreds or even thousands of unique links out of one link.

Some Link
Hope it helps :wink:

oh i forgot to add, this is what the url will look like in the address bar:


The last bit will change every time the page is refreshed. (or link clicked)
