What are filer folders?

Filer folders are folders that are assigned to your Bento site and are used to store content that can be added to your Bento pages. Almost any type of content, including images, PDFs, CSS, Javascript, and audio files can be stored in filer folders and all content can be used an infinite number of times on your Bento pages. 

One of the best things about filer folders is that all content is hosted by PBS so you don't need to worry about storage space! 

Can everyone use content I've added to my filer folder?

Filer folders are site based which means when you create a folder on your Bento site, everyone who has access to your site can access the content. 

Let's get started by adding filer folder content to your webpage.

Can I search my filer folders by file type?

Yes, you can search all filer folders by file extension. Only one extension can be searched at a time.

  • Go to the Filer section of your site and in the search textbox, type the file type you want to search and click the magnifying glass icon or press the Enter key on your keyboard to initiate the search (Figure 1.1). Be sure to include the preceding period before each file extension. Examples: .gif, .jpg, .pdf, .doc
  • Results display in the table below with the specified file type listed (Figure 1.2).
