Create a Link to a File
These steps will help you create a text or image link to a file hosted on our servers for your site. Our system will allow you to upload the following file types: Documents / Productivity - CSV, DOC, DOCX, PDF, PPT, PPTX, RTF, TXT, XLS, XLSX. Images - BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG. Audio - MP3, WAV. Video - AVI, FLV, MOV, MPG, MP4, QT, SWF, WMV. Compressed Files - ZIP.
- After logging into the system, click the Website button and go to the page where you want to create the link.
- Either create a new module for the link (click on the Add Body Content link in the upper left and click the Add button for the Content module at the top of the list) or click the Edit button (the fat little pencil) in the gray toolbar of an existing module where you want to create the link.
- If you are adding a link to an image, click on it to highlight it. If you are making a text link, type out your text and then highlight it with your mouse. (Example: Click here to view our Summer Catalog!)
- Click on the Insert/Edit Link button (in the functions above the Content editing box, in the top row of buttons: this button looks like three chain links).
- Click on the Browse Server button (the button on the far right of the Source field; it looks like a folder with a magnifying glass).
- If you have already uploaded the file, click on the folder it is in and find it in the list (or Search for it in the upper right) and then click on the file. If you have not uploaded the file yet, do the following steps:
- Click on the blue Upload File button.
- Click on the green Add Files button and search your computer for the file you want.
- Either double-click on the file or click on it once and then click the Open button.
- You will see a small thumbnail image of your file in the Upload Files window. Click on the blue Start Upload button.
- Depending on the size of the file you are uploading and the speed of your connection, you may see a status bar for the upload. Once the file has finished uploading, the Upload Files window will disappear.
- You will see your file at the top of the list. Click on it.
