mojoPortal 101: How to Use the File Manager in mojoPortal
Written by Carole Bennett Wednesday, 30 May 2012
mojoPortal provides a number of ways to make files available to your site users, whether it’s through the “Shared Files” module, or the Content Editor in the HTML module. However, one of the most direct ways is to use the “File Manager”, available to those with administrative access through your mojoPortal-based website. Let’s step through to see how that works.
There’s two ways to access the File Manager directly as an administrator; via the “File Manager” link in the grey admin bar at the bottom of every page, or the “File Manager” icon/link in the Administration panel. Once you click the icon, you’ll see this screen:
Notice that you have five options at the top: New (Folder), Rename (Folder), Move (Folder), Delete (Folder), Upload (File). Your default window will be the folder specific to your site (i.e. /Data/Sites/[your site number]. Depending on your needs, you may find it handy to create specific folders to better organize your files, and then upload as appropriate.
In order to ensure that your file is uploaded to the appropriate folder, click on the folder you want the file uploaded to; it’ll change to an “open” folder. Now once you’ve uploaded your file, click on it: you’ll see icons over to the right of the file name. The icons are “Preview”, “Download”, “Rename”, “Move”, and “Delete”. These icons are file-specific, and will allow you to have control over each specific file.
