How to replace squarespace image url (static.squarepace) so it shos my Domain?

Recommended Posts

Squarespace serve static files via multiple geographically distributed content delivery networks (CDNs) to ensure the data is served from the datacenter closest to the visitor’s location. The url is fixed as static1.squarespace.com followed by a string of random characters and the file name. You cannot change this.

However, if you want to share a direct link to the PDF you could share it using https://www.bakdshop.com/s/BakdHolidays_20.pdf instead (domain name + /s/ + filename).

Thank you, Paul!

Hi Paul, are you aware of whether your feedback is still valid currently? All our product image urls start with https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/ and when we replace with domain name + /s /+ filename it does not work. Is this approach not valid for the -cdn image urls?  Thanks.

This thread is about 'static' files, not image files. For example, when you add a PDF, DOC or XLS file to your site for visitors to download. If you're asking about a static file, please include a few details of the page where we'll find it.

If your question is about images, you may want to start a new thread/question 🙂

Thanks for the clarification Paul. Clear now. Yes I was asking about image files and since it does not appear that the solution works for image files, I won't start a new thread. I guess we are stuck with the 5,000 character gobbledygook image URL that Squarespace bequeaths on us in their own wisdom.
