I’ve got quite a large site that I want to upgrade from MODX 2.# to MODX 3. Bearing in mind that MODX 3 renames PDFs / images in upload according to friendly_alias_restrict_chars (or in my understanding it does this), how do I upgrade and maintain alias as the above system setting but keep the names of images / PDFs that the client might have upload as say ‘My Pdf.pdf’ or ‘This is a Picture of ME.jpg’ ? Just trying to avoid broken links / surprises on upgrade.
I’m pretty sure the transliteration only happens when a file is uploaded.
So already existing files shouldn’t be affected.
You can also change the system setting
No to disable the renaming on upload.
Thank you Harry. It just occurred to me though - that setting isn’t available before MODX 3 as far as I know (I didn’t even know it was there in 3 TBH) and so I’d need to know at what point the translit actually happens - is it on upload or will say, clearing cache cause this?
It’s only on upload.
Thank you Harry. That’s a relief!
