How to upload a document

We use a central system to upload documents to the cloud. 

Why use the Upload Library?

It allows you to load documents onto the cloud (via Amazon S3) in a central system for all users of the Volcanic admin area to access, instead of it being on a local computer. It's an ideal place to put documents where you think they will be used through the website and business including: 

  • Terms and Conditions
  • Training Manuals
  • Brochures

How to Manage the Upload Library 

Step 1. Firstly, make sure you are logged into the Volcanic admin area. Secondly, scroll down to "Content". Click there and then click "Upload Library'. 




Step 2. Click "Choose File" - this will request you to find a file off your local desktop. 

Step 3. Once you have found the file click open and "Upload". The document will then upload to the admin area. Please note: you may need to refresh your page for the document to appear in the library. You can then embed these files in the site through the CMS. 



How do I add a document (permalink) to a specific page?

In order to embed a document on the front end of the site, find the page you wish to add it to.  

Step 1. Click on "Edit this Page" in the tabs on the right side of the page. This will take you to edit mode.

Step 2. Click within the dashed box and the CMS tool bar will appear.

Step 3. Click on the download icon (cloud with arrow)

Step 4. Select the document you wish to add to the page, from the drop down library.

Step 5. Click on OK at the bottom. Your document will then appear as a link.
