There are two ways in which you can upload audio files. By logging in to your account on Africa Media Online you can upload using the online upload system. Or if you know how to use ftp you can log in to our ftp site and load images that way. It is good to get familiar with both methods because depending on the network you are connected to the internet on, one method or another might not work. In this post I will deal with the Online Upload System.

Online Upload System

1. Log in using your username and password on any page of Africa Media Online. If you do not know your username and password email contributors@africamediaonline.com

2. Three tabs will appear at the top of the page. Click on the Upload tab

3. That will bring you through to a page with a list of checks. At first you will see the panel for loading images that looks like this:

Ignore that panel and simply click on the “Audio” tab shown here:

You will need to check that your files conform to the standards laid out here. If they do, then tick the tick boxes.

4. Clicking Submit takes you through to the page where you can begin uploading files. Click on Browse to go and search for the images you want to upload. You can upload many pictures at a time if you select a group

5. Immediately upon clicking on select, the files will begin to load. You will see a progress bar for each file as it loads. Once a file has loaded its progress bar will disappear. The count of number of files uploaded will not change from zero until all files are loaded. You can cancel the upload of an individual file by clicking on the red “x” and you can cancel all the uploads by clicking on “Cancel all Uploads”. Please do not re-upload the same file without first checking if the first one was received. Email contributors@africamediaonline.com to check.
