Media Library »Media – Add New

By clicking Add New on the Media menu you can upload images, audio files, videos and other files to your Media Library without having to start a new post.

The Add New screen lists your allowed file types, allows you to select files to upload, and shows your remaining upload space. Note that to upload audio files or increase your available space you will need to purchase a Space Upgrade. To upload video files, you will need to purchase VideoPress.


Simply drag and drop your files into the box that appears, or click Select Files to choose a file from your computer to upload. Please keep in mind that the drag and drop uploader only works in browsers with HTML5 upload support such as the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Other browsers will still show the Select Files button or the basic browser uploader form.

When a file has finished uploading, you will see a Edit link on the right.

Clicking on the Edit link will allow you to edit the Title, Alternate Text, Caption, and Attachment Page Content for a file. It will also provide you with the URL of the file. Here’s an example of the options for an image upload:

We’ve had good success with file sizes up to 1 GB. Remember, uploading big files can take a long time!
