From your dashboard, go to “Manage” » “File Manager”
Your File Manager is where you’ll be able to upload images, videos, audios, PDFs for downloads, or anything else you may want to share with your visitors. This is a core function of the Quan$ite™ system. You can upload files up to 100MB in size!
The File Manager has a very user-friendly interface. You can manage your files by creating folders to keep them organized, review files through the “preview” interface so you don’t accidentally delete a file you wanted to keep.
Using the File Manager
When you first reach the File Manager, you’ll see on the left side a list of the folders and files currently in place, a File Information section on the right, and the functions to create new folders and upload files at the bottom.
You can navigate your folders by clicking on the Folder Icon. If no magnifying glass is on the folder, that just means there is no content within that folder. To go back to the main directory of your File Manager, click on the “Folder-Arrow” Icon at the top of your file list.
Creating & organizing folders
Before we move on to creating new folders and uploading files, it’s important to remember that naming your files and folders is just as important as uploading the files themselves. You should use keyword rich file name, and replace all spaces with either dashed “-” or underscores “_”.
To create a new folder, scroll to the bottom of the File Manager and use the text box with “New Folder” entered in it, replace “New Folder” with the name of the folder you’d like to create and click the “Create” button. The new folder will appear in your File Manager list.
To upload a file, scroll to the bottom of the File Manager. Click on the “Browse” button to locate the file on your computer’s hard drive, click on “Save” then click “Upload”. This may take a few moments, so please be patient. You’ll notice a red-swirl moving within the window to let you know that the upload is in process.
Once your upload is complete, click the refresh button in your Browser’s Menu to allow the File Manager to read the data of your file. Now you can check the box next to the file name and view the file information on the right-hand side.
In the File Information box you’ll see the file name, the file URL, the created and modified dates, and a small preview of the file. The File URL is the address you’ll need in order to add your files to various sections of your Quan$ite system. The general format of your file URL is as follows: http://YOURDOMAIN.com/blog/uploaded/yourFolder/yourImage.jpg
Moving Files Within File Manager
If you’ve uploaded a file and it isn’t exactly where you want it within your folder system, you can move the file(s) by checking the box next to the file name(s), then click on Cut in the File Manager Menu.
Open the folder you’d like the file(s) to go into by clicking on the “Folder Icon” next to the folder name, then click on Paste. You’ll receive a confirmation request that you would like to move your files, click “OK”. Your files will be moved to the proper directory.
*Please note that while the File Manager has been set to accept large files, various browsers or internet service providers may create a “time out” if the file is too large.*
