The File Module¶
The FILE > Filelist module is where you can manage all the media associated with your TYPO3 web site.
Managing Files in TYPO3 CMS¶
Files including documents and images are managed in the Filelist module. Similar to the WEB > List module, it displays a navigation tree, which corresponds to the file structure on the server, and a list of all files for the selected directory.
For admin users, the folder displayed by default is called
“fileadmin/ (auto-generated)” and corresponds to the
fileadmin/ folder located under the document root
folder on your web server.
Using these files inside content elements to display them or link to them in your web site is covered in the Editors Tutorial.
There are extensions which make it possible to connect to remote storage pools (like a WebDAV server or an Amazon S3 account) and work with the files as if they were on the TYPO3 CMS server.
There’s a clipboard just like in the List module.
Using the action icons, files can be renamed or replaced (just hover over the icons and you will get a help text).
Uploading New Files¶
You can upload files to a given folder by using the context menu or to the current directory by using the action icon in the docheader.
You will get to simple upload view:
