Adding Media Items

Add a variety of media types to your instance: SVG, PDF, MOV, Mp4, GIF, JPEG, and more.

Accessing Media Items

Media items can be any number of file types, including SVG, PDF, MOV, Mp4, GIF, JPEG and more. Selecting the Media tab, located on the sidebar of your Content Manager, redirects to all of your media assets. Within this screen, you have the ability to add all of the media assets of a given instance. Files can be uploaded or dragged and dropped from this location.

The media section also allows you to organize the content within by creating groups. These groups can also be nested.
