First you will want to configure your File Uploads App, under the Configure Site > Social Networking > File Uploads page.
This will take you to the File Uploads Config page:
Here you will find the appropriate Placeholder Texts and the configuration settings, including the file uploads approval process, how to display the file uploads, how much (if any) to charge for adding files/special features, etc.
You can also choose to allow members/visitors to edit their file uploads info, and the approval process for the edits, on this File Uploads configurations page too. 1) Copy/paste the Placeholder Text for the File Uploads Edit Form on your webpage (Add/Edit Page), and then 2) Select that webpage in the Edit File Uploads Page menu (File Uploads Config page).
Organizing File Uploads: You can choose to use categories/types on the File Uploads configurations page. Or you can choose your user file uploads to just be organized into series, or none of the above.
To create File Upload Categories, go to Pages > Add/Edit Page, and just choose the Content Type "File Uploads Category"!
On this page, after choosing the "File Uploads Category" type, this will open up the File Uploads Options Section. Checkmark the box to allow posts (towards bottom of this Add/Edit Page) if you want to allow postings to this category, rather than just use it as a parent file uploads category, for example.
Here you can choose a Category image, post cost (if any), file upload types, and who can view/post file uploads.
To Create File Upload Types, click on the Photo Upload Types button on the Admin Panel > Configure Site > Social Networking > File Uploads page:
This lists all the File Upload Types.
Click on the "Add Type" tab there on the right side, to go the the Add Type page. Click on the "Fields" button in a Type row here to go to the Type List Fields page, and to add fields to the file type.
On the File Uploads Type page you can configure which feature options to enable for this type, such as a Buy Button.
On the File Uploads Type List Fields page you get the list of fields, and you can click on the "Add Type Field" tab on the right side to add more fields for a file upload type, and click on the "Options" button in any field to add/edit options for that field if it is a selectable field (rather than a text input field).
To Manage File Uploads (postings), go to Members > Member File Uploads.
