When my linked file (resume) is downloaded from browser, a seemingly random character string [ 5ae6841a7df9bf735bbe66fa_ ] is appended to the beginning of my original file name. I assume this is related to the file hosting service. Is it possible to avoid this? I would prefer to maintain my original file name on download.
Hi @WillR That is a good question.
Correct. When you upload an asset to Webflow, it gets uploaded to the Fastly.com CDN. If you don’t want the file name to change, you may have to use a third party cloud file hosting service like Dropbox or Google Drive.
Hope this helps
Thank you. I switched to a third party file host.
I noticed that my linked file is accessible on Fastly.com, and can be accessed through a google search, even though my site is password protected. How can I remove this file from Fastly.com, so that it is no longer accessible outside of my website?
You should consider crafting a solution to this.
It is rather annoying for our clients to download weird named files. We have had two clients, who loved the ability to upload a file for download, but then we had extra work changing this, as they did not want the weird file names on download.
