Create an Empty Folder

Organizing assets (files, documents and pages) into folders makes them easier to locate and access.

For example, if your site has a large number of images or PDFs, by organizing them into sub-folders, you will be able to locate all of the similar files together.

Important: When creating a new web page, the system will automatically create a new folder and put a web page inside. Learn more about creating new web pages.

Folder Placement

In this tutorial, we will create a sub-folder in the “images” folder to hold a group of related images. Before beginning, make sure the correct location (folder) in the asset tree is selected. The selected folder is where your new folder will be placed. In this case, the placement folder is “images.”
