How to find "file manager" in the new format?  I know where to locate it on my current old format website/ "edit site"... But I'm currently working on a new website using the new format and when I click on the "edit site," I can't locate a url link or anything to find my files?  Please advise.

Are you using SB+? If so, It's under the url in the upper right corner of your page editor.

I'm using SB+ for my current "old" site but I'm creating a new site using the updated platform and that option is not showing in the upper right corner -- no url option at all.  The new format shows "WebsiteBuilder" in the upper left...

So how do you file existing uploaded photos or upload new files?

Good question. I'll leave that for the homestead staff to address. Drew will respond during business hours tomorrow.

With the new Website Builder there is no file manager like we are used to. Click on Elements in the left hand menu, then choose either Images or Files. Using Images as an example it opens a screen showing Add Image, but at the top are 4 options. If you haven't created any folders in the My Images section then all your photos will show under the default folder option. If you then open My Images you can create folders for each page or subject, etc. or just lump them all under My Images. Go back to the default image file, select an image, and choose Move to Folder, select the appropriate folder and choose ok. This also applies to any files you upload by selecting Files under Elements.

It's a pretty clunky way of accessing our files, but that's what the developers came up with.

Susan is correct, and support has requested a true file manager, but I do not have any sort of status on if/when it can be delivered. You can organize your images into folders if desires as Susan shows. You are also able to delete images there if they are no longer used and you want to keep the site clean.
