To upload a file, use Upload a file in the toolbox. A user must be logged in to upload a file. After a file has uploaded, you can link to it.

Uploading a Document

To link to an uploaded document use the syntax:

[[Media:thefilename.ext|the file description]]

. Regardless of the file extention, the keyword Media is used. The following file extensions are currently allowed:

  • doc
  • mp3
  • pdf
  • ppt
  • xls

Uploading an Image

  • gif
  • jpg, jpeg
  • png
