How do I add documents to my web page in the CMS?

While this article will help you insert documents into your web page, you may need to convert the document into a web page offer the document as an alternative download. Learn more about making documents accessible.

The first step to using documents on your web page is to upload the files to your CMS site.

All of your documents should be organized under a Documents folder, which can be further organized as needed. For more on organizing your files, please visit How do I organize my website images, documents, and pages?

  1. Log in to the CMS by navigating to a page on your website and clicking the Direct Edit link.
  2. Click Content then Pages.

  3. Open the folder titled Documents .
  4. Click Upload from the Page Specific Controls. In the upper right hand corner.

  5. The Upload dialog box will appear. You may add documents two ways:
    • For less than five files, simply drag the files from your computer into the Upload dialog.
    • For more than five files, please send your computer files to a zipped folder. After doing this, click Import Zip File from the Upload dialog and click Add to browse for your folder.

  6. If you are uploading revised copies of files already uploaded to the site, remember to click Overwrite Existing Files.

  7. Click Start Upload.
  8. You will need to review your files and ensure no errors have been found. This may include file names. Please remember that special characters are not accepted.
  9. Remember the final step is to publish all of your newly added files. See Publishing Images and Documents for more information.

If you experience problems uploading your files, please review the File Upload Guidelines.

Once you have uploaded and published your files, you can link to your documents using our Accessible Document Classes, provided you have

  • made the document to meet or exceed WCAG 2.0 AA document standards on its own,
  • included the contents of the document in the web page, meeting accessibility standards,
  • or, the document was last updated before the legacy date of June 1, 2014 and does not need to be made compliant. (Unless the content is requested to be compliant or is updated after the June 1, 2014 date.)
