Images and other media files are an important part of any website. At its core, your Website’s Media Library is exactly what its name implies: a catalog of all the media files you’ve uploaded to your site:

The Media Library is capable of hosting a variety of types of media, including:

  • Images (.jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, and .ico).
  • Audio files (.mp3, .m4a, .ogg, and .wav).
  • Videos (.mp4, .m4v, .mov, .wmv, .avi, .mpg, .ogv, .3gp, and .3g2).
  • PDFs.
  • Word documents.
  • Excel spreadsheets.
  • PowerPoint presentations.
  • Adobe Photoshop documents.

It also has some limited photo-editing capabilities, so you can make adjustments as needed right from your dashboard.

To access your Media Library, simply click on Media in your admin sidebar at any time:

There are a few basic options available here.

First, you can determine if you want to see your files in a list or grid view by clicking on the relevant icons.

You can also filter your files using the drop-down menus:

The first menu enables you to view your media by type, while the second will filter your library’s contents by the dates on which they were uploaded.

You can also use the Bulk Select button. This feature lets you delete several files from your Media Library all at once.

Finally, you can also use the search bar to look for specific files by name.

Within your Media Library, you can add files & edit images
