Uploading PDFs or Images

Step-by-Step Instructions

Note

The only file types allowed on emich.edu sites are PDFs for documents and .jpg, .jpeg, .gif and .pngs for images. We do not allow .doc, .docx, excel spreadsheets or powerpoint files to be uploaded into the site. Please convert your file into an appropriate file type and name it appropriately (no uppercase letters, no spaces with dashes between words, no dates) before attempting to upload.

Contributors can insert images and link to files such as a PDF, when creating content for a page. Images are stored in a folder called images and documents (e.g., PDF files) are stored in a folder called "docs" or "documents". Both of these folders can be found one level below the top in the directory structure or in the individual subdirectories, depending on the file structure setup.

Follow these directions to upload files in Modern Campus CMS:

  1. From the content tab, navigate to either the images or documents folder.
    Note: Images are stored in a folder called images and documents (e.g., PDF files) are stored in a folder called docs. Both of these folders can be found one level below the top in the directory structure or in the individual subdirectories, depending on your file structure setup.
