Public files

All the files in your blog’s folder are public and can be accessed by your readers. This is useful if you want to embed media in your blog posts or distribute files to your readers. For example, let’s say this is your blog’s folder:


 Your blogNameFilesArchive.zipIndex.htmlPosts   


Your readers can download  Archive.zip if they visit:

https://your.blog.com/files/archive.zip

Note that paths are case-insensitive. Blot also serves index files. Your readers will see the contents of  Index.html if they visit:

https://your.blog.com/files

What if a blog post and a file share the same URL?

Blot shows the blog post instead of the file. This is because Blot routes requests from your readers to your blog’s template first. If you prefer, you can disable your blog’s template on the dashboard and just use Blot as a static file server.
