Folders and Files

Folders and Files

Files uploaded to Brick River are stored in folders and subfolders which can be browsed using the Files menu.  Only Administrator users may access the root level of the folder tree.  Permissions can be set for users and groups to access the content of subfolders.

Organize your content and plan ahead!  Brick River is an outstanding platform for managing multiple sites.  If you are currently planning for a single site - it is wise to create a folder tree and apply permissions in a way that will make it easy to add files for additional sites in the future.

1 Current folder - Note that the 'root' folder is labeled as 'Home' in the Web Console.  In URLs it is: /files.  In documentation it is referred to as Home.  When navigating the folder tree, use links here to navigated back to parent and root folders.
2 Upload files - browse your local and network files system.  Upload one or multiple files to the currently active folder
3 Create a new folder or file.  This button can be used to create new HTML, CSS, Javascript, XML, or text files.
4 Toggle the screen view between tree, small icon and large icon display
5 Show Deleted files - toggle this on to change the display of the window to show all files deleted from Brick River Home and other folders
6 Show Images - toggle this on to only display the image files in the current folder (other files types are hidden from view)
7 Search for files by character string in filename or title.
8 Folder Properties, open to add a Title or Description for a folder
9 Folder Permissions, set read / write permissions for Users and Groups

File Properties

For each file stored in BrickRiver a database record stores file meta information.

1 HTML, CSS, XML, Javascript and text files can be edited and saved using the built in BrickRiver code editor.  Images, videos and other files will not display this button.
2 copy and paste file path for pages and layouts or URL to include images in email templates.
3 link to open the file in the default program defined for that file type on the local system
4 file name and optional Title, Description, and date created / modified property fields.

Folder Permissions

Only users granted Administrator permission can access to the Home folder.  Other folders inherit this restriction by default.  To extend permission to others, click the padlock icon and click Yes, set permissions on this folder and its children.

Choose Users and/or Groups to include for Read Only and Write access.

Deleting Folders and Files

Administrators and Users with sufficient permission can delete files and folders.  Click the check box to select the desired item and click the trash can button to delete.  Deleted files are retained in the Brick River system and can be recovered using the View Deleted button (check this)
