How to Upload Zipped Files

If you need to upload a large number of images or documents, the quickest way to do so will probably be to create and upload a compressed (zipped) folder. Here's how to get started:

  1. Hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and select the files that you would like to upload. This will allow you to select multiple files, as seen below:
    select images for zipped foldedr
  2. Right click on one of the images you've selected, and select Send to, then Compressed (zipped) folder. A folder similar to the on seen below will be created:

  3. In the CMS, navigate to your _files folder, and the appropriate subfolder that you would like to house the files. Select Tools, Zip Archive as seen below:
    select zip archive
  4. Select the folder you'd like your images located in by clicking on the Search link next to Placement Folder. Navigate to the zipped folder you created using the Browse button, then Submit your changes.
    locate zipped folder for upload
  5. Once your file is successfully uploaded you should see a screen similar to the one below, showing that each individual file from your zipped folder has been unpacked and uploaded successfully.

  6. Your zipped files are now available just like a conventionally uploaded file. Be sure to publish the files before linking to them.
