How do I upload images or files to my site?

  1. Go to the page where you want the image to appear
  2. Click 'Edit my site' to ensure you are in edit mode
  3. Open the 'File Manager' (the folder icon in 'advanced view', 'Files' icon in basic view)
  4. Click the 'Upload' tab
  5. If you have already uploaded your image file, it should be in one of the folders that appears in the 'File Manager' - most probably the 'Images' sub-folder within the 'My Files' folder. If you haven't uploaded it yet, click 'Start upload' (Upload tab).
  6. Click 'Browse' to navigate to the file (you want to upload)
  7. You can choose to rename it before you upload it to your 'File Manager' or just click on the 'Upload' button to continue
  8. Once the upload is complete you can upload another image file or close the upload window
  9. When you return to the 'File Manager', click 'Finish', and you will be see the folders contained within the 'Your Files' tab. You can browse the 'Images' sub-folder for your uploaded file(s). Select the file, then click 'Use this'.
  10. The file will now appear on your page. You can now position and scale it on your page using the drag handles. Remember to save your changes
