Overview

The File Manager in CMS lets you to view and manage the document, theme and image files used on your web pages. Just like any file manager, you can upload, download and delete non-system files. It also has image editing tools so you can resize, crop and apply filters to your image files right in File Manager. 


File Manager has three main folders:

  • Images - default folder for Product, Category and Flyer images 
  • Documents - general folder for any other files
  • Theme - folder for site files, including scripts, styles, fonts and images


File Manager is available anytime from your CMS navigation menu. It is also the window displayed when you add a file during a task , e.g., select an image for an article or a product. 


Accepted file formats: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, html, htm, txt, docx, doc, zip, pdf, xls, xlsx, csv, svg, css, js, ico, woff, woff2, gz, rar, lzh, mp4, webm, ogg, dwg, stp, dxf, webp, vcf


Example: Selecting an image for a product (in Product Maintenance). For some tasks such as this one, only specific folders are accessible. (Here, only the Images/Original folder for uploading/selecting an image is visible). For some other functions, e.g., Articles, all folders will be available.

  1. In CMS, go to Content →  ContentFile Manager
