What are the numbers inserted into the file path?


#1

When I load a remote file into Atom and then hover over the file name (see image), I notice that the file name was modified by inserting a long number before the name, 112346-200816 in the figure below.

What is this number and why should I care about it? Atom hasn’t actually changed the file name because when I save the file back to the remote location the file being written is just \functions.php.

Is there a way to keep this number from appearing?

Thanks for any info

Atom isn’t doing anything. This appears to be a package issue. The number is probably a unique identifier so that if you were to be editing multiple functions.php files at the same time, the package would know where to send them.
