Loading zone

The loading zone is a temporary location in the file system where files are stored before being uploaded into PageSeeder.

Loading zones are automatically created when a member intends to upload content into a PageSeeder group.

Why a loading zone

Having a temporary space to hold files to upload allows users to:

  • upload a whole collection of documents at once;
  • preserve and verify the integrity of the linking between files;
  • remove and manage the list of files to upload;
  • set individual upload options for each file;
  • test import function and tweak the options;

For example, when importing a Microsoft Word (docx format) document into PageSeeder as a PageSeeder PSML document, the loading zone allows users to Preview the file before uploading, add a name (Title) for the document or add labels to the document.
