Can you edit resource external links?

    It doesn't make any sense to have to delete a resource and remake the whole thing to change the external link. It's inefficient, and I can only assume/hope that I'm completely missing it somewhere. Is there a way to change the external link of a resource? For example, if you update the resource, you will have a different link and would need to change it. How would you go about doing this?

    What do you mean by "remake the whole thing to change the external link"?

    If you mean change the resource from free to paid, no, it's not possible.

    A resource that is using an external link (free), how do you update the external link to a new external link. For example, if you upload version 0.0 to mediafire/file/321312331231 and then update the plugin to 0.1 and uploaded it to mediafire/file/9898989898 how do you change the download link from the 32123232 to the new 989898989 file.


    Notice in the picture, there isn't an option to change the external link.

    That is also not possible.

    Any reason as to why? I'm not entirely sure why this wouldn't be a pre-existing this.

    Downloadable resources are designed around versioning. To change the URL, you'd need to post a new resource version (or resource update).
