log inPermission to add files is granted only to users that have logged in. You must log in, by entering appropriate username and password in the 'log in' box here on the left.
creating a fileYou should go to the folder where you want to create the file; if you have permission to add files there, you will see a tab "content" or a small tab "add new file" here above: click it! (For example: you do not have permission to add files here.) Click on "add new item"; read the list of file types and choose the most appropriate, and click on 'Add'. This will create the document and bring you in a place where you can edit it.
editing the fileThese following are the steps to do for editing the file. When you are editing the file, you can at any time hit the "guide" tab: you will see a suggestion of what you should do next.
uploadYou should upload a file. Click on the "edit" tab, click on the "Browse.." button, choose a file, and click on "save" on the bottom of the page. Alternatively, if the file is text, then the "edit" tab should contain a text editing widget: you may edit the file in this window.
infoYou may provide some info, as a title, or a description. This kind of info is called 'metadata'. Metadata is used for categorizing, that is, in preparing the catalog for searches. So, a good choice of 'metadata' ensures that other people may locate your file when they search. Click on the "edit" tab, insert title and description, and click on "save" on the bottom of the page.
metadataYou should provide good metadata. Didn't we tell you how important metadata is? :-) Click on the "metadata" tab or on the "properties" tab, choose keywords (you can choose many of them by holding down the key 'ctrl' while you use the mouse), and click on "save" on the bottom of the page. (If no there is no relevant keyword, the reviewer will create some keywords for you).
Any file on this server must be reviewed by a reviewer. The file will be visible to the anonymous visitor of the server only after it has been reviewed, and accepted for publishing. These following are the stages of reviewing.
