How do I setup a document reference in a topic or entity description?

Documents can be placed in a topic or entity description using the RadEditor.

  1. In the RadEditor, click the Document Manager button.

  2. Select the Upload tab.
  3. Browse for the document you wish to add and click the Upload button. Be sure the document name does not contain spaces for browser compatibility.

  4. NOTE: The document will be uploaded to the folder designated in your \RadControls\Editor\ConfigFile.xml for the "UploadDocumentsPaths" Property if ML8, or in the RadEditor control of the edited admin page (such as topics.aspx or entityEditProducts.aspx) for MultiStore installs.

  5. Once the file has Uploaded, the editor will open the Browse Files tab with your document selected. We suggest that you set the Target to New Window so the document is presented in a new window or tab.
  6. Click the Insert button.

  7. The document has now been uploaded to the site and hyper-linked using the document name. If you wish to change the link text, simply highlight it in the Description window and modify it.
  8. Update the topic or description and reset cache.

NOTE: If you encounter an error such as "Provided document file exceeds max size allowed!" or "The size of the uploaded file exceeds max size allowed", refer to this KB article.
