EVERY single article I’ve looked at after searching for a way to solve this issue has said to install an SEO plugin and just redirect the permalink to the original file. That doesn’t solve the underlying problem.
I have a logo file called square.png, that is tucked away nicely in the wp-content folder as it should be. But WordPress (in its infinite wisdom) decides that people want to see a page of information about the file when they visit example.com/square.
What if I want to put a page at that url? Even if I use an SEO plugin to redirect it, that url is still taken and the page I create is put at example.com/square-2.
Wordpress doesn’t allow you to edit the permalink of an attachment or put them in their own namespace like example.com/attachment/square.
This plugin solves ALL of that trouble, all of the permalinks now refer to the url of the actual file, with the url of the attachment page renamed to a long random alphanumeric string so it won’t conflict with anything.
