New to Kirby while researching alternatives to WordPress. I like what I see a lot so far!
But one newbie question: Where do I manage my media (images, videos, PDF files ect)? I know I can upload images into a page when editing said page in the panel. But what if I want to use the same image in another page? Do I have to upload another copy of the file there or is there some sort of central image folder where I can put them so that all pages can access them?
Hi and welcome to Kirby and the forum.
You have basically two options:
- Put them directly in the
content folder next to site.txt, so they belong to the
- Create a separate page folder dedicated to managing your files
Hi and thanks! Uploading to /content sound like something I would do via the file system, not the admin, right? Because I need a solution that allows a content editor to upload stuff.
The page folder solution sounds good, I’ll try that. Any suggestions on how to best set this up?
No, that’s the same as uploading to a page folder, so can be done via the Panel
There’s nothing special about that, all you need to do is that wherever you want to select a file, you need to add a query from where to fetch the files, and if you want to upload from another page to that media page, you have to set the parent (for a files section) or the
uploads option with parent for a files field..
That way, you don’t have to go to your central media page to upload new files while editing page x.
