The Voice CMS provides an Assets Library to store all the rich media necessary to display your website's content.

Whenever a rich content document (such as an image, audio file, or document) is added to a website it must be stored somewhere online at all times. In other words, websites cannot display content directly from the author's computer as visitors do not have access to the author's hard drive. To make them available these documents are stored on the server that is running the website being visited. Therefore to enhance your website with these sorts of content your Voice website stores them for you. The storage area in Voice is called the Assets Library.

CMS Assets

An individual Assets Library containing your site's media is available to all Voice websites and is fully integrated with the WYSIWYG editor making it simple and easy to use.

Adding an Item to the Assets Library

There are two methods to add files to the Assets Library.

Firstly, you can do this via the Assets Library page in the Content Management tab of the admin pages of your website.

The Assets Library

The assets library is split into sections for each media type (1 in diagram). To add a new file to the library simply click on the relevant quick link (2).

You will be prompted for the name of the asset, which appears in the assets listing (1), and asked to select the file on your computer that you wish to upload. Select the file and click Save and Publish. Once uploaded your asset is now available in the library and can be selected directly from the insert/edit image or link buttons in the WYSIWYG editor.

The second way to add an asset is directly from within the WYSIWYG editor.
