Additional file URLs

Permalink
Hi there

Just wondering if there's a user-friendly way to add additional URLs to files like you can with pages. I could use .htaccess redirects or just upload them outside of c5 of course, but ultimately I want our less technical people to be able to upload catalogues for example and get a nice friendly URL to print on marketing material.

So for example if I upload a file widgets.pdf, currently it will reside in something like
http://example.com/application/files/1234/5678/9012/widgets.pdf...

I'd like them to be able to specify that the file can also be reached at
http://example.com/catalogues/widgets.pdf...

Is that possible? Or are we better off doing file storage outside of c5's.

You can´t name the URL of a uploaded file currently. But you could request a feature request on Github!

If you need this pretty URLs for your data, you could store them with FTP at a "pdf" folder in your conrete5 root and put all your data there. Then you may reach these withwww.www.yourdomain.com/pdf/filename.pdf....
