The IMCE Dialog Box

Adding an Image or File (PDF, etc.) to your Content

  1. Follow Steps 1-7 above if you need to upload your file. Before closing the IMCE dialog box, select your image or file from the list on the right (be sure and choose the correct folder on the left!) and click the Insert File button on the toolbar at the top.

Note: Make sure your cursor is placed correctly within the Body field before inserting an image or file. Wherever it is located within your editing window is where the file will be placed and it can be difficult to maneuver it around.
