In addition to creating files within Solodev’s CMS application, users can upload files from their local machine. Solodev CMS allows users to upload four primary file types(HTML, Text, Image, and Document). This article demonstrates how to upload files to the websites and documents workspace. 

Solodev recommends uploading tpl files and html files to the web files -> content folder, web files -> templates folder, or web files -> forms folder. Images and script files (for e.g. .php, .css, and .js files) should be uploaded to an assets folder located in the www directory (for e.g. www -> _ -> css or www -> _ -> scripts).

Step 1 – Uploading a File to the Websites Workspace

This example demonstrates uploading an image file to the www folder.  

  • Click Websites located under the Workspace section of the menu.
  • Open the website that will house the files.
  • Expand the www folder.
  • Expand the _ folder, then open the images folder (the user should create these folders if they have not done so).
  • Click the Upload button to bring up the upload window
  • Users can upload one or more files by clicking the browse button or dragging the files into the box.

Once the files are selected, users can upload the files using a variety options (Upload + Save, Upload + Stage, and Upload). Click Upload.


Step 2 – Uploading a File to the Documents Workspace

  • Click Documents located under the Workspace section of the menu.
  • Open the Default Folder
  • Click the Upload button to bring up the upload window
  • Users can upload one or more files by clicking the browse button or dragging the files into the box.
  • Once the files are selected, users can upload the files using a variety options (Upload + Save, Upload + Stage, and Upload). Click Upload.

Note: To upload and save files without publishing them users can choose the Upload + Save option. To save the file and publish it to a staging server users can choose the Upload + Stage option. To save the file and push it to the live site users can choose the Upload option.
