Information can be incorporated into QED in many ways. This page is primarily concerned with uploading files, such as image files and data files. The basic way to upload a small number of files is using the Upload file hyperlink in the toolbox. As described below, there is also support for batch uploads of multiple files at once. For other techniques, see QED:Import.
Many but not all types of files can be uploaded to QED. The list of allowed file types is likely to change over time, depending mainly on security considerations, but currently it includes the file types usually associated with the following filename extensions:
- inline: .gif .jpeg .jpg .mov .mpg .mp3 .ogg .jp2 .png .qt .ram .rm .svg .swf .tif .wav
- other: .cml .csv .dat .djvu .doc .docx .json .kml .kmz .pdf .ppt .pptx .rtf .txt .xls
For a dynamically generated list of allowed file extensions, see QED:Variables#File Extensions.
The file size is constrained primarily by the PHP variable post_max_size, the current value of which can be seen at Maximum Size of an Uploaded File. If you are having difficulty uploading a file, please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further information on factors affecting file uploads, see QED:Admin.
The Upload file page only allows files to be uploaded one at a time.
To upload as many as 10 individual files in one batch, use the Upload Files form, which can also be readily accessed from the Upload file page.
Various scripts for remote batch uploading are available. See Help:Bulk Uploads for details.
