Adding Images & Documents

Both image and other documents are added into Cascade in the same way. Images and files can either being added individually or as a zip file containing multiple items.

Uploading Files

To upload one or more files:

  1. Click Add Content > Default > File.
  2. In the Name field, enter a name for your file.
  3. In the Placement Folder field, choose the folder where the file(s) should be uploaded.
  4. Select one or more files to upload by clicking the Choose link or by dragging and dropping files from your computer into the dotted drop zone..
  5. In the Metadata tab (available for single file uploads only), add any necessary metadata for your file (title, author, etc.).
  6. Click Save & Preview and Submit.

Uploading a Zip Archive

It's also possible to upload multiple files by compressing them into a zip archive. This method is useful if you have multiple folders worth of files you'd like to upload and want to maintain the folder structure, as the folder structure will be recreated within your site when the zip archive is unpacked.

To upload a zip archive:

  1. Click Add Content > Default > File.
  2. Select a zip archive to upload by clicking the Choose link or by dragging and dropping it from your computer into the dotted drop zone. You'll be prompted to either unpack the files (Yes) or to upload the zip archive as is (No).
  3. If uploading the zip archive as is, enter a name for your file in the Name field.
  4. In the Placement Folder field, choose the folder where the file(s) should be uploaded.
  5. Click Save & Preview or Unpack to begin the upload/unzipping process. After uploading/unzipping is complete, you'll be presented with a report of all files uploaded and any that were skipped.
