Deleted a PDF in OJS. Can we use the same URL instead of it generating a new one?

We had an article PDF which we had to completely delete and re-add. We had an error when using the replace button.

As a result, the link changed from this to this

We had sent out direct links to the PDFs in an email. Our publisher would like to know if it’s possible, in OJS, to associate the PDF with the old URL rather than the new?

Hi @jaskoog

No, you can’t do this directly in OJS. However, you could create a redirect in apache that can map the old URL to the new one and prevent a broken link.
