Destination name of a file to embed

With the new file manager and the ability to use folders do we have to specify the folder in the path when wanting to embed that file and do we use the convention:
resources/folder name/filename?
The site builder is woefully slow and I had an error.
Thanks in advance

Short answer - yes Peter,

Try this out:
- Create a new folder in the file manager.
- Upload a test image to that folder.
- Place the new image on a page.
- Publish your site.
- Right click on the image and view properties.
- You will now see the full path of that image.

As far as I can tell, you have to use the full path when
referencing (or linking) to that image.

P.S. Thanks SynthaSite for this new (long overdue) feature.
You do hear our cries I see.

Thanks Boomer!

Peter - you can also click on 'edit' on the top left of the widget and re-select the file. This will change the path.

If you open the File Manager and hover your mouse over the file, the path of the file will also open in hovertext. Remember to include resources/ before the folder and filename.

Hope that helps - any feedback is appreciated!

Thank you Boomer & Marije,

A new thing learned on a great new resource.

This facility is great. Files all easily seen and logically grouped make reviewing a breeze.

The group upload variation works well too.
