Adding images and documents to your pages

To make your site more interesting and informative you can also include images, documents and links on the pages you have created.

Adding images and documents is a two-step process. You must first upload your image or documents to the ‘Assets Library' to ensure they can be seen by other online users. Once the image or document is uploaded to the library you can add it to pages on your site.
You can use the same method outlined below to upload as many documents, images, audio or visual clips to the site as you require.
