File Manager

The File Manager is your website's storage to upload images and other documents you want to use throughout your website. The File Manager can be accessed through the Dashboard section of the website. 

When first entering the new file manager you'll be presented with a brief tour on how to use your File Manager.  You can choose to view the tour or proceed on your own.  Here is a walkthrough of what you'll see with the tour:

1. Click the "Show Me How It Works" button. If you want to pass on the tutorial, click the "No Thanks, I'll figure it out." button.

2. Clicking on the blue gear icon, you'll be given choices on adding or deleting folders. When adding subfolders you can continually nest them until you have the structure you want.

How do I tell if my file is done uploading?
Once the green progress bar has disappeared, your file has been successfully uploaded into the File Manager.

Is there a limit to the file size I can upload?

Files no larger than 100MB can be uploaded into the File Manager. 

Why did my file fail to upload?
If an image has failed to upload, a few different things may be happening:

  1. If your internet connection is loss while the image is still being uploaded, the upload process will fail.

  2. If the file name includes any special characters ( *, $, ( ), %, &, @ ) the image will fail to upload. Dashes ( - and _ ) are OK to use in the file name.
