Question of Webflow Code


#1

Can you please explain, what URLs are these in the code? Because the URLs do not work. Are they encrypted?

They are encoded into Base 64.

More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64

A common use case is to encode binary files such as images within scripts, to avoid depending on external files.

You can use a decoder to see the source: https://www.base64decode.org/

Or you can paste this in your browser address bar to see the image:

#4

Our clients do not want that the code has links to extern Servers. Why are the images not included in the Webflow Code. For us is important that the Export Code has no links to other servers


#5

There are no "Webflow servers".

If Webflow hosts your site... or you publish a site using the webflow.io domain
- it's still hosted externally... on AWS servers I believe.

If you self-host...
- you can have every image you want store locally (on your domain).


#6

But these are external links, or not? Why are these arrow Images of the slider included like this? Can you please explain me that i can understand it? I am not a web developer.

These are not external links. It is base64 code. Please refer to this post. It already answered your question
