Leo, if you activate static export, then it will *always* kick in
directly after something has been published (provided that the published
resources or their parent folder have been set to export=true)

So, as soon as somebody is allowed to publish a resource, they will also
cause the resource to be exported along with that.
Publishing of resources can be controlled by the file properties.
In addition to that, if a user belongs to a project-manager group, then
that user may export the complete project and not just individual resources

If the link is changed to localhost:8080 then you have to edit your
opencms-system.xml and set the name of your server correctly there.
After this, the files should use the correct server name
