How to Upload a New File

To Upload a new File for publication on your website, you will need to do so via the Media Library.

The Media Library is a built in tool allowing the easy uploading of images, graphics and other files which are hosted on your website.

To do so:

  1. Hover over the Media link in the left hand menu.
  2. Click on Add New.
  3. Simply Drag & Drop your file into the Dashed section, or use the button provided to find you file to attach.
  4. No matter which upload method you used, you will see your file uploaded under the Dashed box once it has finished uploading.
  5. Click the Edit link.
  6. On the right hand side of the reloaded page, look for the field entitled ‘File URL’.
  7. Click once inside this field then press Ctrl+A to select all.
  8. Press Ctrl+C to Copy this URL. You will require this link to update the link to your file on whichever page you are editing.

Your file will now have been uploaded and will be stored securely within your site’s own Media Library.

From here you can update links to uploads by simply copying and pasting the URL to the updated file wherever you require it.
