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 an image in your blog posts or distribute files.

For example, given the following folder, your readers can download if they visit /files/ on your blog. Blot also serves index files. Your readers will see index.html if they visit /files.

 Your blog Name Files index.html Posts      

Paths to files are case-insensitive.

Embedding images in posts

An image in your blog’s folder becomes its own blog post by default. However, files and fold­ers whose name starts with an un­der­score are ig­nored. Ignored files don’t be­come blog posts them­selves but they can be em­bed­ded in other posts. You can use Markdown to embed an image in your post:

Here’s how to embed an image in your folder:

![Image title](/path/to/the/_image.jpg)

Absolute paths are resolved with your blog’s folder as root. Relative paths are resolved from the location of this file.

You can also embed an image that’s already on the internet:

![Image title](https://url.of/the/image.jpg)
