Audio/Video Files

I'm looking at the editor I do not see an icon that allows me to insert audio and/or video files. I must be missing something because I cannot imagine those features are not available. Would someone point it out to me.

Thanks so much.

Response

Isn't there someone here who can address this simple question? I'd really appreciate someone helping me out here. I bought the product so my clients could use it, yet if they cannot upload videos and audio it is useless to them...and to me. And if I'm just plain dense and I am not seeing the obvious, I'd appreciate someone pointing that out to me as well.

As you can tell, I'm getting a little desperate.

Thanks so much. Appreciate it.

your insert flash button should be right beside the insert image button...looks like a little circle with an "f" inside. I don't know about the audio files, you may need to wait on WA for that.

Video

Thanks for the response. I appreciate it. I am aware of the flash button, but I was wanting to insert .wmv files and mp3 files. I see no way to do that with that editor and I'm sure there has to be a way. I cannot imagine someone building an editor and not having those features, so I'm thinking I'm simply not seeing it. It seems as though I'm not the only one either as I've seen a couple of other threads on this subject. They are still waiting for an answer as well. Hopefully I can get this resolved today, as I have an appointment with a client today regarding CMS, but if I cannot get an answer on this issue I won't be recommending that they use PowerCMS.

Thanks again.

this may not be what you want, but a minor workaround for now could be just build a stanalone page and use dreamweaver to build a form with file upload capability..I think you could upload your stuff that way.

Not an Option

Thanks for taking the time to respond. That is not an option. I guess I'm just going to find another CMS program. One that supports uploading video/audio. It's simply unbelievable that this program does not support that capability. And if it does, I find it additionally unbelievable that WA does not have icons for them, or at the least, documentation regarding them. Boggles the mind.

Thanks again, graunt. I really appreciate your help.

The files types you are looking to add do not have defined buttons to add, but using the file upload you can upload the files of your choosing, just select file from the select list at the top of the window. Here is a list of the allowed file types that you can upload, this list can be edited to include other file types as well if you need to add any.

'7z', 'aiff', 'asf', 'avi', 'bmp', 'csv', 'doc', 'fla', 'flv', 'gif', 'gz', 'gzip', 'jpeg', 'jpg', 'mid', 'mov', 'mp3', 'mp4', 'mpc', 'mpeg', 'mpg', 'ods', 'odt', 'pdf', 'png', 'ppt', 'pxd', 'qt', 'ram', 'rar', 'rm', 'rmi', 'rmvb', 'rtf', 'sdc', 'sitd', 'swf', 'sxc', 'sxw', 'tar', 'tgz', 'tif', 'tiff', 'txt', 'vsd', 'wav', 'wma', 'wmv', 'xls', 'xml', 'zip'

Thank you for responding, Eric. I really appreciate it. I don't follow. When you say select from the file upload at the top of the window...what window? The Image dialog box? If so, I see no list. Thanks again!

File Manager

Ok, Eric, I think I figured out what you were speaking to. Sort of. I believe you were referring to the File Manager. If so, then I still see no "list" to choose from. However, I do see the Browse and Upload features. Using those features I can upload jpg, pdf, etc., but when I attempt to upload a .mp3 or mpeg4 file, or something similar to those extensions, I get nothing. It seems as though it uploading and when it is done there is no file to be found. I'm sure I'm directing it to the right folder. I checked and rechecked that, and I'm sure the file is not there. Nothing. Is there a setting I need to enable for that to happen or is it a defect, or something else?

I hope you can help me out. Thanks.
