Uploading Multimedia in the Page Editor

Last modified March 25, 2020

Once your issue is ready for review on staging, you can click the ISSUE EDITOR button and upload multimedia files via the Issue Editor. Click the media tab in the Issue Editor:

If no media files have been uploaded, either via the Issue Editor or Publisher Dashboard), the initial view should look like this (note that the available tabs may vary, depending on the digital edition products you are publishing):

Click the up-arrow icon (in the ACTIONS section).

This will open an “Uploade Multimedia Files” dialog box.

Click the SELECT FILES button.  The File Explorer dialog box will appear.  Navigate to the directory on your computer, where the multimedia file(s) that you wish to upload are located.  Select the file(s) then click the OPEN button.  The file(s) selected will appear with a Pending status in the file upload area.  The START UPLOAD button will turn from light blue to dark blue.

Once you have added all the files you wish to upload to the upload are, click the START UPLOAD button; upload status for each file will then display.

When the file has finished uploading, This window will disappear and you’ll see the names of the files in the Media Library, either in white or yellow with the text “(Converting).” Video and audio files are reformatted, or “converted,” to ensure cross-device functionality after you upload them, which sometimes takes a minute or two. Images are ready for use right away.

Once the file has finished converting the file name will appear in white text. Note also that media you uploaded via the Publisher Dashboard home or issue details views will also appear in the Issue Editor’s Media Library.

To add more multimedia files, click the upload icon (up arrow) again and repeat the above instructions.

You are now ready to place your uploaded media element.
