Social media component and adding files

Learn how to highlight, for example, your school's social media channels and how to add files.

Social media

The Social media component includes

  • a title
  • a text piece and
  • external URLs to social media channels.

You can edit the title and text to fit your page. Example below.

Attachments 

Files are attached to aalto.fi by using the Attachments component.

When you have selected your file, Drupal will prompt you to consider the file you are uploading, so that it does not contain any protected personal data or other sensitive information.

If you click on "No", the file you uploaded will not appear and you can either leave and delete the attachment-component, or review your file, and click "Yes" after uploading the file again, if the requirements of it are met. After you have confirmed that you understand the restrictions concerning the files that can be uploaded by clicking "Yes", you need to select the visibility of your file.

The visibility of your file means that it can either be viewed by all users of aalto.fi, thus it is public, or it is visible only to the Aalto community, i.e. to those who have logged in with an Aalto username. Public files are found and indexed by search engines such as Google. Files restricted to the Aalto community can be found with aalto.fi's own search engine, but not using a search engine outside the website, nor will search engines such as Google index them either.

If you fail to select the visibility, an error message will appear on the page and you cannot continue with the upload.

If you select "Visible only to Aalto community", you can finish the upload of your file.

If you select that your file is "Public for everyone", you will receive a prompt from Drupal making sure you are aware of what this means. If this is clear to you, and the file does not contain any protected personal data or other sensitive information, you can click "Yes"; otherwise you can cancel your selection of public by clicking "No".

When you add a new attachment, the file "Name" field is shown, so make sure, that the name is such that the reader gets an idea of the attachments' content without having to open it first.

After the above steps, your file is now ready and uploaded. Below is an example of an attached article.
