Managing Files in Upgraded CMS

In the upgraded version of the CMS available after June 1, 2020, there have been some changes to how you manage images and other files for the website. 

On the main CMS menu, you should now see a Files button.
""

If you're already in edit mode on a page and need to add an image or file, you'll find when you go through the previous steps that you'll no longer have an Upload Images/Files button, but rather see a Manage Files button. (Clicking this will open the file management screen in a separate browser tab.)
""

Once you click the Files or Manage Files button, you'll come to the Manage Files screen. Then you can navigate to the server folder you have access to for your pages, just like in the previous version. Once in a folder you have permissions to, you should see several options at the top of the window. To add images or other non-video files, click the appropriate button.
(Please note, we continue to upload video to be hosted on the website through the university's Vimeo account, so we discourage use of the Add Video button. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.)

You'll be presented with a drag-and-drop interface to select your files to be uploaded to the web server.

Once you've dropped your files in the space allowed, and the system has buffered them, you'll be able to click the Continue button.
""

You'll be presented with a screen to review your file information, and can then click Update File.
""

Then your file should be in the folder desired and can be added to pages as usual.

Deleting Files

You may have noticed you now have the option to delete your own files! In the Manage Files interface, simply click on the red X next to the desired image or file.
""

The system will give you a chance to confirm deletion. If you're sure, you can click Delete File.
""

However, the system will warn you if this image/file is still currently in use on the site. In this case, it is advised NOT to delete the file until you've done a search and removed it from whatever page is still using it.
