Add files to Root Directory

One thing that I don't like about Webflow is that images are not hosted on clients own website directory. This is fine when someone is just browsing the site, but if a person views the source, they will automatically see webflow branding on every image and file on the site. Another problem with this is when wanting to implement certain features on a site, files have to be uploaded to the sites directory, not to another server.

    Voting for this too.

    Webflow doesn't seem to like the '.' in '/.well-known/security.txt'

    When you redirect without the fullstop it works but I need the link to have it.

    Voting for this so to support adding ./.well-known/security.txt

    This update will be made webflow more accesible to custom features...

    I understand everything about Try Reilly's workaround below... Except the first step.

    "Put any WORD say ADS in a Text Link. Attach your ads.txt as a file."

    What does that mean? How does one do that?

    Sorry if noob question.

    Thanks @Troy Reilly.

    This worked:


    I have found a workaround for this issue. Put any WORD say ADS in a Text Link. Attach your ads.txt as a file. Copy the address of this new link. Go to your Project Settings for your webflow project and under the Hosting tab, create a 301 Redirect that is: ads.txt → https://(paste your Text Link Address here). You can check your link address by adding it to the address bar of your browser, it should pull up your ads.text info.

    We need this feature, or better workaround. I can't more bring customers to webflow hosting that need some txt files to be added to the root.

    This is very important! It might be a deal breaker for me... Seems like a simple addition if you're able to edit the site's robot.txt other files should be easily added.

    I need an ads.txt added to the root and if that's not possible there's no reason for me to stay with Webflow. It is surprising to me that Webflow was designed without this feature and that it remains without it. It's like a basic requirement.
