Collective importing

The collective importing system allows you to import content by uploading it to the 'temp' folder and this works for the following modules; Album, Cards, Mobiles, Videos and Audios.

To import your content, you need to upload it to the following path '/contents/temp' so that the path would be 'contents/temp/namefolder'. 

Collective importing steps:

1. Sign in the Administration Control Panel.
2. From the modules menu, choose desired module then 'Display sections'.
3. Click on the 'Collective importing' icon in front of the desired section as shown in the picture:
