Our next training session starts in:
If you tell SiteWrench to link to the file /lennon_commute.jpg, it will do so faithfully. But if you rename the file to be /lennon_car.jpg and don’t give SiteWrench the updated name, it will get lost because the “address” is no longer valid. And as useful as 301 redirects are, you cannot set up 301 redirects for files.
Renaming files is very useful if you have multiple instances of the same broken link on your site. Let’s say we have Lennon’s commute image on our site 13 times on various pages and page parts.
Then the unthinkable happens: someone deletes the image because they want to upload a new one. Now all 13 references to this file are broken, and our site looks horrible.
Schedule a demo with a product specialist who can answer any questions and show you SiteWrench.
