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.

    Hey Troy Reilly, I'd love to try your workaround method, but you could give some more details about the instructions on how to do it?  I know you described it here already, but there were parts that lost me

    Whoops too quick on the POST button.  You can then Delete the word ADS you started with.

    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.

    My Adsense at Risk notice went away within a day.

    Indeed, I wish this feature was implemented sooner than later.  I've gone full in on creating multiple websites on Webflow and this is a necessary plug-in to me.  Please take the time to push this up the list of projects.

    Friends, please implement this. Major ad providers (e.g. Google) are implementing support for app-ads.txt, and any app website (and there are many such websites on Webflow) that has ads will need to place that file in the root directory. This is serious and urgent. Thanks.

    It's the way to link Onesignal and other third-party services with service workers.

    Also we are not able to make PWA from sites on Webflow.

    Please implement it, we are waiting for that so much.
