Upload

You can upload photos, documents, and other files to OU Campus. By default, users level 6 to 10 can upload files, and users level 1 to 5 can be granted that permission by an administrator.

Files can be uploaded both while in Pages or while inserting an image, video, or link onto a page. With either method, the files you upload are added to the file structure with your other pages. Once uploaded, files can be linked to and images and media added to pages.

Once an image or other file has been uploaded, you must publish it 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 with suffixes appended to the image name.

To PagesLink to this section

  1. Navigate to Content > Pages and where you want the file to be.
    * If you're uploading a photo, many schools have designated folders for images. Check with an administrator to make sure you're in the right folder.
  2. Upload files by either:
    • Click the Upload button at the top of the page, next to the +New button.
    • Drag and drop the file(s) you want to upload from your computer into OU Campus. Green highlights around the screen indicate they can be successfully uploaded. You can also drag them directly into a folder.
  3. If you use the Upload button, the "Upload" box appears, giving you several options:
    • Type: The default is "Upload Files," but you can also select "Edit and Upload" to edit images immediately after the upload, or "Zip Import" to import zipped files.
    • Access Group: Choose which group has access to the uploaded file(s).
    • Overwrite Existing: You cannot upload a file with the same name and extension as another file in that location, unless this box is checked. The new file replaces the old one, retaining its dependency tag. By default only level 9 and 10 users have this option, though it can be granted to others.
    • Files: Click the green +Add button to browse for files to upload, or you can drag-and-drop files from your computer into the box.
  4. Once files have been selected, they appear in a list. You can remove files or rename them. Files that need to be renamed to fit your site's naming convention have red text.
  5. Click "Start Upload" to upload your files. Remember that uploaded files must also be published before they appear on your web pages.
