    Hello,
    I am new to all of this and I am trying to add a file directory for students to download notes and helpful information. I used filezilla and uploaded all of it to my godaddy host server but do not know howw to set it up so the files can be browsed on my webpage. I dont want it to be a direct link to each individual file but rathe a link to the folders containing them. Can anyone help me out?
    Thanks,
    Ebyerly

  2. Instead of doing that, you should try making a page and creating your links on that page. Just upload your document using the WordPress media library, that will be way easier for both you and your students.

    The media library only supports uploading of files up to 8mb. These files are powerpoint shows and such that are much larger than that. Is there some way to alter that. Also is there a way to use the media library to access the files uploaded to my host server already?

  4. You can increase the max file size, but you won't be able to get WordPress to recognize files uploaded via FTP.
    Here's a previous thread that talks about changing the file size.

    I changed the file size but this still seems inefficient. I dont want the to have to click on each one to download. There are a lot of files. So, there is no way to group them into a folder using wordpress?

  6. Even if you put them in a folder, people still need to save each one by one. You could zip up all of your documents and provide a link to your zip file.

    You might need to contact your host and chat to them about file size.

    Another option as well would be to use dropbox instead for these huge files.
