RM 1.1 Can I Remove Download URL?


Well-known member
Hello! A user submitted a resource featuring a YouTube video. Instead of embedding it in the description, he placed the YouTube url in the "download" field. I edited it and embedded the video, but I can't adjust/remove the download URL, even if I reassign it to myself.

How can I remove/change the erroneous download URL?

Alrighty. Why's that the case? The uploaded file or URL can be changed during an update. In fact, a resource using a URL can chance to an upload during the update. Why can't they be changed to a resource w/o?

Resources with a file and resources without a file are conceptually very different and have different assumptions baked in.
