Hiding web paths

By Ladoo posted on 24 Jan 2012
If you have a group of assets that only exist for the purpose of appearing in a list, you ideally don't want these assets to be accessible to the public at all. To ensure an asset doesn't have a URL, try one of the following:
  • Ensure the assets are only linked under an asset that has no URL (this means the parent asset can't be under a Site asset, or the Design or Media folders).
  • Remove the web path from the parent asset, and ensure all the child assets are only linked under this parent asset. Removing the parent web path should ensure that any child assets do not inherit or build on the parent web path, hence these assets won't be accessible.
