File Manager : Editing a file
Posted by Benjamin Antenor, Last modified by Benjamin Antenor on 13 April 2016 02:34 AM

Editing an existing file through the File Manager allows you to make immediate changes to your web site without having to upload a new version of the file. This is useful for small changes but would be inefficient for large alterations. To edit a file please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Navigate to the folder where the file is located.

Step 2: Click on the name of the file.

Step 3: Click on the Edit link in the top menu of your window. This will open a new window with the content of the file displayed.

Step 4: Alter the text of the file.

Step 5: Click on the Save Changes button when you are ready. The file is saved and the changes will take effect from now on.

You can use more sophisticated editors as the Code Editor and the HTML Editor. You can also click on the View link in the File Manager main menu. The file will be opened for reading and you will not be able to edit it.
