0. How do I upload files into a slice
1. File Manager

First, your System Administrator has to setup the apc-aa, see below

Then edit one of the fields, e.g. SliceAdmin-Fields-ImageURL-Edit

Set the type to "File upload" and use the Wizard to set the file type to for example image/* or */*

Set the Validate/Insert field to "File"

The field will then show up with a pair of fields, one where a URL can be entered, and the other where a file can be chosen. You may wish to take care on picking the help text for these fields as it can be confusing to figure out whether to fill out both fields or just one.

The File Manager enables Slice Administrators to modify their web pages on-line in the AA Control Panel. It appears only when an superadmin sets so in Slice Settings. The File Manager settings are hidden to anybody except superadmins. See File Manager Administration for more details.

Most of the features of the File Manager are very common:

If the superadmin creates some web templates, a select box "Copy template dir" appears. Templates are groups of web files which are copied to your root directory. If there is a file name conflict (a file with the same name already exists), the template is not copied and an error message appears. Rename or delete conflicting files. You can access and modify all the template files after you have copied it.
