Adding a doc to WYSIWYG 

Adding a document in WYSIWYG editor

This does not work like a hyperlink, i.e. you type the name of the document, highlight the text and select ‘Add file’. You don’t type anything at all, you just go straight to ‘Add file’ in your WYSIWYG editor. We flag this up because, if you did add your document like you would a hyperlink, then every time you save your content type, the file link will duplicate.

Here’s what you do: 

As an author, editor, content reviewer, publisher, and webmaster…

1. Go to your WYSIWYG editor, whether you are creating or editing a content type, section or custom widget

2. Select the the ‘Add file’ icon

If you are uploading a new file:

3. Select ‘Upload file’

4. Choose file from local drive 

5. Name file – this will be the name that is displayed to readers

6. Select ‘Save’

7. Choose to display as ‘Default’

8. Select ‘Submit’

The file will appear, with the relevant file type icon and file extension.

If you have already uploaded the file:

3. Select ‘Files’ or ‘My Files’ depending on whether you uploaded the file

4. Choose the document you want to add as a link

5. Select ‘Save’

6. Choose to display as ‘Default’

7. Select ‘Submit’

The file will appear, with the relevant file type icon and file extension.
