The Basics

Files

Different types of files can be uploaded to the CMS, such as images, videos, pdfs, etc. These can then be added to a page's content so they can be visible on the site.

Here's some guides for managing Files on your CMS:

Uploading a File

To upload a single file, go to the 'Files' tab on the navigation bar. On the 'Site Structure' menu on the LHS, choose the location where you would like the file to be uploaded to, then select 'New'. 

FILES

This will bring you to where you can upload a file of your choice. Either select 'Upload a file' or drag and drop a file to the 'Drop files here' section.

Files, such as images, can then be embedded into a page's content. Files, such as documents and pdfs, can be added to a page using the ‘Related’ tab or the ‘Internal links’ icon in the content editor.

Uploading Multiple Files at Once

To upload multiple files at once, i.e. perform a "batch upload", hover over 'Files' on the navigation bar and select 'Batch Upload' from the drop-down menu.

Next, select the location in which you would like to put the files before uploading them. To view files in each location go to 'Files' on the navigation bar and then select the location in the site structure list. You will then be able to upload files by selecting 'Upload a file' or by dragging and dropping them.

Inserting a Link to a File on a Page

To insert a link to a file on a page - a pdf or excel spreadsheet for example - first select 'Pages' on the navigation bar. Using the 'Site Structure' sidebar, navigate to the relevant location and select the page that you would like to add a link to a file. 

LinkFile1

In the 'Content' section of the selected page, select 'Edit' and add some text in the page's content to link the file to. For example: 'Click here to see the file'. Next, highlight this text and select the 'Insert file' icon (highlighted in the image below).

LinkFiles2

Select the file you wish to insert a link to from the 'File Library' menu, and select 'Insert'. If the file hasn't been uploaded yet, simply navigate to the 'Upload a file' tab (next to File Library) and choose a file. Navigate back to 'File Library' once this is complete, and your file will have been added. Select the file and click 'Insert'.

Don't forget to hit 'Save' at the bottom of the page when you're finished!
