1. Log in to the GCwiki.
  2. From the left hand menu under Actions/Tools, click Upload file.
  3. Click Choose File to search your computer for the file that you want to upload.
  4. Enter in the Destination filename (bilingual name is recommended).
  5. Type in a short, meaningful description of what the file is and/or why it is being uploaded (optional).the file form, including the choose file button, and text fields for file name and summary



Conflicts

Sometimes there will already be a file with the same name as the file you are trying to upload. When this happens, you are presented with a link to the existing file, which you can click to view, and a choice of two options:

  • Save File: Clicking this button will overwrite the existing file, so it is highly recommended that you know what the existing file is before doing so.
  • Re-upload: Click this button to go back and specify a new name for the file, if you do not wish to overwrite the existing file.


Tips for success

  • Make sure you are logged onto the GCwiki before you try to upload a file or edit a page.
  • Maximum file size for uploading files is 32MB
  • Choose a destination filename that is bilingual
  • Use a meaningful name for hyperlinking - i.e. use social media presentation rather than click here. This helps keep our content accessible.
