Uploading and Replacing Files

You can upload PDFs (preferred) as well as Microsoft Word and other Microsoft Office files into the Cascade CMS.

All files should be stored in the /files/ subfolder within your site's Cascade folders.

Updating a File?

If you are updating a file that is already on the website, Replace the File instead of uploading a new version.

Uploading a File

Choose Add Content > File. The editing window will open.

Content Tab

  • In the dotted-line box, either drag and drop the file from your computer, or browse to and select the file from your computer. (If the File Name field is already filled in, you will need to edit it again—see below.)

  • File Name: This probably needs edited, as the file title automatically appears when a file is selected. The File Name field must meet the following requirements:

    • Lowercase only, spaces between words replaced with hyphens, and leading and trailing spaces are not allowed. Example: annual-report-2021

  • Placement Folder: Browse to and select your website’s _files subfolder, located under the main folder in the Cascade CMS. If you were already viewing the _files subfolder, then it will already be selected. Click the blue Choose button. 

Metadata Tab

  • (Optional) Enter the Title and/or Display Name

  • Add any relevant keywords  that would help search engines.

When complete, choose Preview Draft. Then click Submit > Check Content and Submit. On the following page, click the Start Workflow button.

Replacing a File

Browse to your website’s _files subfolder, located under the main folder in the Cascade CMS. Hover over the folder name and click the arrow that appears to the right of it. 

  • In the main window, click on the file to be replaced.

  • Choose Edit.

  • In the dotted-line box, either drag and drop the file from your computer, or browse to and select the file from your computer.

When complete, choose Preview Draft. Then click Submit > Check Content and Submit. On the following page, click the Start Workflow button.
