How Do I Upload Files In WordPress?

Q: I want to be able to upload images (for ads, banners, etc.) without having to FTP in. I’ve been doing it by adding them to a dummy post and then copying the link and adding where I need it-is there a better solution?

A: There’s a built in solution for WordPress to do just this.

In the sidebar of the WordPress Admin Area, click on “Media > Add New” (located at

Upload Files In WordPress via the Media Section

From there you’ll see the same file uploading interface that you do when you create a post or page.

      LaVonne, no problem at all! And you caught us while we were migrating servers…which gives us another tip…don’t point people to your site right before you’re going to be doing some maintenance! 🙂
