This will take you to the Root Folders page. You can either click one of your existing Folders to add content to, or add a new Folder by clicking Add subfolder.

You can then choose which type of content you want to upload. You can choose between: 

  • Folder
  • Assets (these are simply files like images, videos, PDFs etc.)
  • Article
  • Link

Once you've uploaded your assets, click 'add'.

To upload assets, click Browse files and select your files on your device. When upload them you'll see a progress bar which will reach 100 when each file upload is complete. When all your files are at 100, click Add

If you click the pencil icon to the right of the main Folder section at the top of the page, you'll be able to edit some of this Folder's settings. 

  • Name – change the name of the Folder
  • Description – give the Folder a description to let your Members know what to expect
  • Display as... – choose whether to display this Folder's items as a list or a gallery; it's a good idea to choose gallery view if you're using images and videos; list view is ideal for documents, recipes, articles etc. 
  • Choose Group(s) – you can which Group(s) can see this Folder
  • Hide Folder name(s) – you can choose not to display the Folder name if you prefer that; some Hosts do this to maintain a certain aesthetic in their community – they might use the Folder thumbnail to show the name, for instance.

Once you're happy with your Folder's settings, click Save.
