Hi Lieven, The web interface only supports adding attachments to topics. Attachments are always in the pub directory. so mywikidomain/pub/Main/SomeTopic/attachment. Your data directories should never be directly web accessible, so files below a web wouldn't be useful.

Okay, your explanation makes sense. My reason for asking was that I'd like to include a Google analysis tool, and they require to add a specific html file into the "top level" of your website. It has to be - So there is no chance to do that?

The alternative procedure is adding an HTML tag into the "head" of the starting page. Which one would that be? The one that opens first? (like ?)

edit: I just tried and it works. Question answered.

Hi LieVen, To add the google special file, it usually requires direct server access.
  • Copy the file into the foswiki directory, (or wherever the server would resolve
  • Modify your Apache configuration to permit it to serve an HTML file from the root, (Avoiding rewriting for short URL.) Usually that means adding an Alias statement similar to that needed for robots.txt
    Alias /robots.txt "/var/www/foswiki/robots.txt"
    Alias /googletokenfile.html "/var/www/foswiki/googletokenfile.html"
