Managing Your Content & Media

The Content Editor and Media Library

Sitecore is divided into two sections: the Content Editor and the Media Library.

The Content Editor is where you will create new pages, edit existing pages, create components and manage the publication of content for your website

The Media Library holds the media for use on your site; things like images, word documents and pdfs are all stored in the Media Library.

Content Editor - Add and edit content

Content Editor: Manager you content

  • Create basic pages
  • Edit existing pages
  • Add textual content

Media Library - Manage your media

Media Library

  • Upload and store images (jpg, gif, png)
  • Upload and store non-HTML files (PDFs, docs, ppt)

Do not upload video files to the Media Library. Instead, use an external host like YouTube, Vimeo, or Drexel Streams.
