Leveraging mojoPortal as a CMS is a smart decision for organizations that need to provide access to protected files and content with access rights defined by user roles within the website itself. However, if you’ve got a lot of files that need to be uploaded at one time, you may feel daunted by the scope of the project. Never fear – there’s a way to upload a large number of files at once, and keep your workload manageable.
For shared files (.pdf, .doc, .xls), we’ll leverage the Shared Files feature in mojoPortal. The prerequisite for being able to upload files in bulk to the Shared Files feature is to have your mojoPortal-based site running in Full Trust. This allows the NeatUpload component to provide the option to select multiple files from your computer, and upload them to your Shared Files feature.
Per Joe Audette, the architect of mojoPortal: “To ensure that your site is running in Full Trust, look under Administration > System Information. If it says “Full Trust” there then you can enable NeatUpload (which is disabled by default) by renaming Web.config to Web.mediumtrust.config, and rename Web.fulltrust.config to Web.config. Copy any customizations that you previously made into the new Web.config.”
If your site is not running in Full Trust, check with your hosting provider to see if you can change it over to Full Trust. Most hosting providers, such as Arvixe, offer Full Trust hosting.
