IMPORT (+PLUS CMS ONLY)

    The Content Importer enables you to quickly add content from an existing site (via ftp or http). Simply enter the full url of the video (wmv, mov, mp4, or avi) or photo zip (zip) file, a username and password if required, and details about the video. The importer will copy the original content file to your uploads directory, add the content to your site's data files, and push the content item into the queue. One simple step and your content is added.


UPLOAD

  • This is the browser file uploader. The VIDEOS and PHOTOS management pages require you to upload a video file (videos) or a zip file (photos) prior to adding an item to the site. Uploading is done separately from the content admin areas to allow bulk uploading, since file uploading is a time-consuming task. Having a separate UPLOAD page also allows you to give upload access to your content providers or staff.

  • Your file will be uploaded to the UPLOAD directory, where it can be used to create a VIDEO or PHOTO SET content item.
