Upload

Upload images, videos, documents, and other files to OU Campus. By default, users levels 6 to 10 can upload files, and users levels 1 to 5 can be granted permission by an administrator.

Upload files while in ContentPages or while inserting an image, media, or link onto a page. Uploading adds files to the file structure for your pages. You must publish an uploaded file for it to be visible on your live website.

If you upload images to a folder where an image size set has been applied, linked copies of that image are created according to predefined dimensions and suffixes are appended to the image name.
