The purpose of this guide is to quickly bring you up to speed with the Content Library extension. To do so, we will cover three key sections:
Section 1: Manage your Folders
Prior to adding content assets to the Content Library, you’ll want to create a folder structure to help you quickly organise your contents.
Creating your Folder(s)
From the Content Library extension, click the + button to create a new folder under My Library.
Section 2: Manage your Content
This section covers the uploading, tagging and adding of content metadata.
Uploading Content to a Folder
Now that you’ve got your folder structure, you’ll want to upload content to those folders.
From the Content Library, select your folder you wish to add content to. Click the + button to add a new item and select Upload Local File.
Tagging your Content
Tagging your recently uploaded content will help in searching for it later.
From the Content Library extension, select the content you wish to tag. You can also choose to select multiple items to tag.
Adding Content Attributes (Metadata)
You can add additional metadata to add descriptions and titles to the content asset which in turn can be used through application scripting.
From the Content Library extension, search for and double-click the content you wish to add metadata to.
Under the Content Properties sub-tab, add in the content item’s title, description and tag(s) for organisation and searching purposes.
You are able to use the content item’s title and description through action scripting. E.g. On media load, set plain text to content items title.
Going through this guide, you would have:
- Created a folder
- Added a content asset into that folder
- Tagged the content asset
- Added metadata (title and description) for that content asset
- Shared your content folder
