Upload/Edit Files in Cascade

Generally, only pictures (.jpg or .png format) or PDF Documents should be uploaded. Files cannot exceed 900 kb and should be file size optimized.

File names can only contain lowercase alphanumeric characters (i.e. a-z and 0-9) and hyphens (i.e. -). Using keywords in the filename can be helpful for search engine optimization.

ex. biology-student-field-trip.jpg vs. DSCN00937293.jpg

  1. Make sure you upload files into the proper location. For images this is usually the "images" folder associated with your content, for PDF it's the "pdf" folder. The best way to make sure you are in the proper folder is to hover over the folder in the Site Content panel on the left until you see the small arrow appear next to the folder name. Clicking on the arrow will take you directly into the images folder, which can also be verified by the content that is displayed in the main view pane.
