In Files and images list page you can edit any file, upload a new file or delete the files that are not associated with a product, variant, brand or category. These files ready to be deleted are marked with red Not assigned in Area column and only these ones have the delete icon in their row (under the blue edit icon).
The Files and images list page will open when you click on Files and images in left side menu.
The Files and images list page is an optional area to manage your files.
You can upload and assign images directly in area where you need them: product, variant, products attachments brand, category, settings, support request or newsletters in future.
If you intend to upload a file while you are in Files and images list page, click the blue Upload new file button at the top right of your window (opposite to page name). Later you will assign the upload file to the corresponding item in items area (for example: you upload a product image in Files and images list and later you will assign this image to the product from edit product page).
The file you upload here can be an image (jpeg, jpg, png files), a document (pdf file) or a compressed file (zip file). The file maximum size is limited to 20Mb to make sure that you are not wasting the space on your server.
When you click on Upload new file button, the Add file pop up window will open to allow you to choose the file from your device.
You have two ways to upload the file from your device:
After you choose the file to be uploaded, the system will upload the file on the server and will promote you a message:
- the message will be green on light green background containing the file followed by "was uploaded" if successful
- the message will be red on light red background containing the file followed by the error if the file could not be uploaded. Most common errors are: not allowed file extension or the file size is too big. Choose a file with appropriate size and extension.
If file you attached is for download usage, you can make a zip with that file and upload this compressed file.
The Add file window will stay opened in case you upload another file.
Just upload another file or close the Add file window from one of the two close buttons:
- one is on top right corner of the Add file window in line with the window name
- one Close button on bottom right corner
The uploaded files will be listed at the top of Files and images list for easy access.
If you click on thumbnail, file name or the edit icon in Files and images list, you will Edit that file (view).
If the file is an image, a new pop-up window will display you the image with all three images that the system creates every time you upload an image to optimize the image display in FRONTEND (optimizing the time to load a page).
If the file is a pdf file, the new pop-up window will display you the pdf content.
If the file is a compress file, the new pop-up window will display you thumbnail of your compress file.
