Uploading files

Apr 20, 2014 8:03 pm

Most types of files may be be uploaded to the File Manager, including typical file extensions such as .docx, .ppt, .xlsx, .pdf, .jpg, .png, .bmp, .mp3, .mp4, .flv, .avi, and .swf.

To upload a document, image, video, or other media:

  1. In the File Manager tab, click on the folder location where the file will be stored. (Folders help organize and archive files. To create a new folder, select the folder icon at the top of the page.)
  2. To add the file, either browse for the file by clicking the upload icon (an upward arrow at the top of the page), or manually drag the file into the directory. Users may also right click within the module for additional uploading options.

Once selected or dragged in, the file will upload. It may now be renamed, resized, archived, or otherwise altered by right clicking on the file image.

Multiple files may be added at one time by compressing the files into a single .zip file. After you upload the .zip file, which is done exactly the same way as uploading any single file, right click on the file and select "Extract files from archive" to unzip the contents into the current location.
