File & Image Manager

The file manager is a central location for files you have uploaded. You can browse, upload, and manage files here.


File Manager

You can open the file manager in two ways:
 

1. Click on File Manager in the toolbar.

 

2. When adding or editing a page, click on the image  button on the toolbar. Then next to the URL field, select Browse from Server.

 

The screenshot below shows the image manager and explains each section.

  1. Folders Pane – This contains the tree view of the folders that you can navigate. You use folders to organize and categorize your images. Create, rename, and delete folders here.
  2. Toolbar – This includes a series of buttons you can click to quickly execute specific file-browser functions.
    1. Upload - This button allows you to upload an image or file to the file manager.
    2. Refresh - This button reloads the list of files and images.
    3. Settings - This opens the settings where you can configure the view of the file area.
  3. Files Area – This lists the available files in the selected folder.
  4. Context Menu – This pop-up menu shows commands that execute specific tasks for the file that was selected. The context-menu options change dynamically depending on the file that is clicked.
  5. Status Bar – This section at the bottom of the interface displays some information about the selected file, the total number of files in the folder, etc.

Uploading Files

The Upload button in the Toolbar opens the upload pane, which can be used to add new files to the current folder. See a screenshot of it below.

The figure above shows the default uploader with multiple-file upload enabled. For computers that do not support Flash or HTML5 (including some mobile browsers) the uploader pictured below will be used. This uploader will only allow one file to be uploaded at a time.

Multiple File Upload

By default the file manager will allow you to upload multiple files at the same time. In order to send the files to the server, follow the steps described below.
 

Step 1

Click the Upload toolbar button to open the upload pane.
 

Step 2

When the upload pane expands, choose the Add Files button. A file-selection dialog window for your operating system opens and will let you choose the files to be uploaded. You can choose multiple files by selecting them in the dialog window all at once.


Step 3

The file(s) will now be added to the upload queue. If you want to add more files to this upload batch, click the Add Files button again and repeat the steps described above.

Step 4

If you change your mind about the files that you selected to upload, you can always either remove individual files from the upload queue by clicking the Remove button next to the file or cancel the entire upload process by choosing the Cancel Upload button of the upload pane.
 

Step 5

You can watch the progress of the upload as a whole and for individual files.

Step 6

Wait for the upload to finish. Once it is complete, the folder content will refresh and the uploaded file will be selected in the file manager.

Upload Error Messages

The following error messages may appear when uploading files.
 

A file with the same name is already available. The uploaded file was renamed to "filename(1).ext"

This message indicates that the uploaded file name is already in use by another file in the same folder. To avoid a conflict, a consecutive number, the "(1)", was appended to the original name.
 

Invalid file

The file that you attempted to upload was not accepted. The most common cause for this message is the file extension is not allowed for security reasons. The file size might also be too large (the maximum file size is 15mb).
 

Upload cancelled for security reasons. The file contains HTML-like data.

The uploaded file contains HTML code. For security reasons, only files with selected extensions are allowed to contain HTML code.

Insert File into Page

To insert a file such as a PDF or document into a page, insert a hyperlink that will download the file.  

 

  • After you have uploaded the desired file as described above, edit the page.
  • From the editors toolbar select the hyperlink option.
  • From the links overlay select Browse Server, and select the file you want to insert from the file manager.
  • A hyperlink will be inserted in the page. For more information on hyperlinks.

Insert Image into Page

If the image has already been uploaded to your image library, you can browse the server and select the image from your file manager. See this guide for inserting images. Deleting an image from the file manager will automatically remove the image from tha page.

Deleting, Renaming, Moving and Copying Files and Images

  • To delete an image or a file, right click on the image or file and select 'delete'. Deleting an image or a file will prompt you to:

  1. Delete and remove from all pages - select this option if you want to remove all image and file paths in all pages across the entire site to prevent broken image and file links.
  2. Delete but leave path from all pages - select this option if you want to keep the image or file reference on the page. This is ideal if you are going to upload a new image or file with the exact same file name.
  • To rename an image or a file, right click on an image or file and select 'rename'. Renaming an image or a file will rename the image or file paths in all pages across the site.
  • To move an image or a file, drag the image or file to the specific folder at the left. Click on 'move here'. Moving an image or a file will update the image and file references across the site. 
  • To copy an image or a file, drag the image or file to the specific folder at the left. Click on 'copy here'. Copying an image or a file will not affect the existing image or file and its path.
