If you would like to add files to VIUBlogs, you can do so one of two ways. You can upload multiple files at once to your site by uploading them to your Media Library. You will then be able to insert those files into your Posts/Pages as needed. Alternatively, you can upload your files individually by navigating to the Post/Page and uploading the file to a File block. 

  1. From the Dashboard of your VIUBlog site, click Media.

  2. Click the Add New button.

  3. Drag and drop the file(s) you wish to add to your Media Library into the upload field. Alternatively, click the Select Files button and find and select the file(s) you wish to upload.

  4. Your files will begin to upload.
  1. In the Post/Page editing screen, click the Add Block button.

  2. Type and select File in the Search for a block field. 

  3. Click the Upload button to find and upload a file from your device. Alternatively, if you have already uploaded the file to your site, click the Media Library button to find and select the file from your Media Library. 

  4. Your file will be added to your VIUBlog Post/Page as a downloadable attachment. When users visit your site, they will be able to download and view the file by clicking the Download button.
