In EE2 I used to be able to mouse-over a file in File Manager to see its public URL. But in EE5 I only see control panel-based URLs (for edit or download). While I can naturally go into the Edit Upload Directory > Upload Directory, then prefix this to the file name, it would be easier to have the public link somewhere for easy copying. Is this possible?

Not currently but it looks like a method of copying file URL's may be coming in EE6.

  • I hope so. I'm not sure why this was taken out.
