How to arrange your content on the server:

The CMS system looks in your members area for a specific folder to find content for your site:

example:     /members/content/upload/

Each set of content you add into the system needs to be contained in a folder called a "set folder". The set folder holds your content and allows you to arrange it into subfolders so the system can read and process your content. (Do not to use odd symbols such as '!,@#$%^&*():;""?><[]\{}| in the file naming of set folders or files. Use _ in place of spaces and keep naming  to A-Z,a-z,0-9). Set this folders permissions to CHMOD 777 after creating/uploading it to your server using your FTP clients' "permissions" or "properties" function, usually located by clicking on the folder and then right clicking.

example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/

TIP:  We always sugest naming your set folder with unique names that help you identify the content on the server. This makes it very handy when you are trying to locate a specific scene on the FTP server. Always include some sort of identifiying date, internal set number, or the names of the talent involved. A good organized site can identify a set of content on the server just by readong the set folder name. Also, do not to use spaces when naming set folders, instead use underscores '_'.

Inside each set folder you should upload your photos(in jpg format) to a subfolder named "photos".
(Do not to use odd symbols such as '!,@#$%^&*():;""?><[]\{}| in the file naming of files or files. Use _ in place of spaces and keep naming  to A-Z,a-z,0-9).(video or photo source files))


example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/photos/


Inside each set folder you should upload your movies(in MP4 format) to a subfolder named either "1080p|720p|480p|360p|240p|144p".
(These numbers refer to the closest height size of your MP4 movie file. If you movie is 480 pixels tall, place the movie inside the folder named 480p.

example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/1080p/filename.mp4
example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/720p/filename.mp4
example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/480p/filename.mp4
example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/360p/filename.mp4
example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/240p/filename.mp4
example:     /members/content/upload/test_content/144p/filename.mp4

(Do not to use odd symbols such as '!,@#$%^&*():;""?><[]\{}| in the file naming of source files.(video or photo source files))


Set the folders permissions to CHMOD 777 after creating/uploading it to your server using your FTP clients "permissions" or "properties" function, usually located by clicking on the folder and then rightt clicking.

Once you have uploaded your content and set the file permissons to chmod 777, you are ready to add the set of content into the CMS.
