You can upload files to the CMS in order to link to them on a webpage. Types of files you can upload include audio, video, PDFs, Microsoft Office files, and more. These files have a size limit of 1GB each. After uploading, you must publish the file.
The Pages List View provides access to functionality relating to creating new content, uploading, and editing content. It provides a view of the pages, files, and directories that make up the site, and the additional functionality that is available for each file and directory. You can get to this area from the Content button in the global navigation bar or Content>Pages.
Let’s say that you would like to display a PDF, word document, spreadsheet or other file on your website. How do you do it? We have two options for this tutorial, a video and a text description. The video will appear first, followed by the text.
Naming Your File
The first step is to make sure your file is properly named. If you are uploading a file that is new to the CMS, you can name it whatever you like and create a new content item. If you upload the same document annually, consider giving it an overarching name the first time you upload it (e.g., fall.pdf). We have some guidelines to help you have good file naming conventions. If you are updating an existing content item, make sure the filename of the file you are uploading matches the filename of the old file. For instance, if the file on your website is called “fall-2009.pdf” then you should make sure that the file you are uploading into the CMS is called “fall-2009.pdf”.
