Uploading an Image to your upload directory

YumpeeCMS provides the ability to upload images or documents through different means. Before a successful upload can be made ensure that the web server has the write permissions to the upload directory. For more information on the upload directory refer to Introduction to YumpeeCMS

This section addresses the different options for uploading images to the upload directory.

 

Uploading through the Media Uploader

To upload through the Media Uploader go to Blogs → Media , click on the Add Files button and upload the desired image or document.

Once the file(s) have been uploaded you will be able to view the uploaded file(s) in the View Library tab.

When you click on the Details link on each tab, you will be able to view the download URL that can be used anywhere in your application.

 

Uploading through the Editor

Files may also be uploaded when an editor is been used to. An example is when writing an article.
