OU Campus Content Management System
Upload & Zip Import
Images and other binary files (e.g., PDFs, videos, Flash files, Podcasts, etc.) are uploaded to the production server by default. These files never exist on the staging server. Web pages and other editable text files (like HTML, XHTML, PHP, CSS, XML, etc.) are uploaded to the staging server and must be published before going live to the production server. Binary files can be uploaded via the Upload link (Content > Pages view). Image files can also be uploaded via the Image Editor in the WYSIWYG.
Uploading a File
File extension permissions have been placed on all of the folders in TTUHSC OU Campus. Navigate to a binary file folder which will normally be either images or documents. The breadcrumbs at the top of the page will show what folder you are in as the example image below shows. You will get an invalid file extension if you are not in a binary file folder.
With the screen fully expanded, click on the upload link in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Set the properties for the upload by setting the access drop down (if desired). The access will default to Everyone which only means that everyone will be able to see the image from the OU Campus interface. Select the Upload Type. The default is Standard. To import a zip package, select Zip. If the file already exists on the production server, check the Overwrite checkbox to replace the current file with an updated file.
Click on the Browse button to bring up the file selection screen. Select the desired file to upload. Select the desired file to upload and click on the Open button in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
Select the Upload button to finish the process.
The ability to upload files is available for users with permission level of 6 or above. Users with permission level 8 or above have the authority to overwrite an existing file.
Lower level users (1–5) can be granted the rights to upload, including for using Zip Import. Zip Import is the ability to upload multiple files within a folder. Zip Import is available to Level 9 and Level 10 users by default and users Levels 6–8 through the user’s settings.
