Customising the appearance of Public Links

Public Links can be customised to change their appearance.  This can be useful if they are being embedded into a web page on another service such as a website or LMS /VLE:

The following options are available by appending the following query string options to the URL.  The following options may be used:

embed=1|0  (0 is default – 1 removes header text and download button)

modified=1|0  (0 is default – 1 removes the modified date column)

extensions=1|0  (0 is default – 1 removes all file extensions)

order=modified&sort=desc changes the sort order of all files and folders in the link to show the latest modified item first

order=modified&sort=asc changes the sort order of all files and folders in the link to show the oldest modified item last

previewonly=1|0 (0 is default – 1 removes the inline download button for all files and hides the download button for files that can be viewed in the browser, such as PDF and images).  Note – The previewonly option does NOT prevent the download of files via other means, such as the browser context menu while previewing files.

One or all of these options can be appended to the URL as required.

When testing public links with any of the changes above, it is important that you are not already signed into Foldr as this may change the appearance of the interface.
