Falcon Link (version 8.5+)

This plugin allows users to publish resources as templates in Falcon.io

Important information

  • You need to have an account with Falcon.io in order to use this plugin
  • Falcon.io has no connection to, and is in no way affiliated with ResourceSpace. Please do not ask them for support for this plugin.
  • When a resource is published to Falcon the file itself is not copied, instead a share link is created with no expiration date.
  • Please note that when a resource has been archived in Falcon any external sharing links that were created will still remain in place. This is by design and intended to ensure that any existing posts using the Falcon template do not break. These shares can be manually deleted via the standard resource sharing page but you should ensure that they are no longer in use by any active posts.
