    How do we delete folders?

    Hi Jill - First, it looks like you're using the MemberClicks Classic system. This documentation is for the new platform, but the relevant article for Classic is viewable here. To delete a folder in the Media Manager, first empty the folder. You can do that by moving the files into a new folder, or by deleting the files all together. Once the folder is empty, view it from the Media Manager (rather than clicking inside of the folder) and click the red Delete X to remove it. I included an example below with the red X circled.

    How do we rename files or folders?

    Hi Gabrielle - File and folder names are not able to be changed once created. This is because the file and folder names are used to create the image or document's path, and renaming the file or folder would 'break' any place on the site the file or image is linked. For example, I clicked on the name of an image in the Media Manager for my demo site.

    /assets/images is the path to the folder the image is stored in, and img-conf-atl.jpg is the image's name. If I were to change the name of the folder or image, the image would 'break' or disappear anywhere on the site it was linked.

    Rather than changing the name of an existing file or folder, you could download and rename the file on your computer, create a new folder in the Media Manager, and upload the renamed file. You would also want to reinsert the file or image anywhere it lived on the site. I hope that helps!

    Thanks, Kinsey. I appreciate your description of how to do this. Essentially, that's a long way around of renaming - the result is the same, the link/image breaks. It would be great to have a rename feature, with the warning (as there is in changing a page name, for instance) that the link will have to be reinserted. Right now, if I want to rename a file, I have to 1. download it, 2. rename it in my file system, 3. reupload it, 4. change the link. That's four steps, when two would achieve the same result. I hope I'm making sense.

    Gabrielle - That makes sense! I'll take the details you've included here and submit them as feedback for the Product Team so that they can evaluate whether we might be able to add the ability to rename files/folders as an enhancement in the future.

    What's the upload size limit (per file)?

    Hi Jen - the Media Manager upload file size limit is 25MB.

    We have several audio recordings we'd like to upload for access by a certain member type. I see a single file cannot exceed 25 MB. What about total content maximum for our entire site? Is there any consequence to consider from having too much content?

    Hi Wendy - We don't track the total contents in your Media Manager – just the per file limit. That said, we recommend using file hosting system specifically designed for larger file (audio, video) instead of uploading them to the MemberClicks Media Manager. Most file hosting systems will provide HTML embed code that you can paste into a MemberClicks article, which will pull the video or audio file into a page on your website. Video wise we typically recommend Vimeo or YouTube. Audio wise, SoundCloud is likely your best option. I hope that helps!

    What are the accepted files for upload into the Media Manager? We would like to upload php files, but are getting a "This file type is not supported" error.

    Hi Michelle - We only restrict .exe and .php files entirely from the Media Manager.

    Are files able to be restricted by member type? I know I can restrict the article/page that the link to the file appears on, but what about access to the file itself?

    Hi Ryan - Files and folders in the Media Manager don't currently have permissions associated. As you suggested, permissioning an Article and linking to a file works, but the file could technically be downloaded and/or shared by a member with permission to view the Article. Please don't hesitate to submit feedback about this feature using our Product Feedback tool.
