How to add a file to your Downloads module

From your Simple Web Manager admin screen, click on the Downloads module.

Note: To use this module, you will already have a Downloads page set up, and probably left 'unpublished'.


In the Downloads module, click on 'Add Download'.


The 'Add Download' window will appear as shown below. Fill in the Download Title. Use a meaningful name like 'Company Policy' so you can easily recognise the correct file later.

There are two kinds of files you can upload:

  • Image files have to be gif, png, or jpg files. 
  • All other files, including PDFs and Word documents, must be added as an attachment as shown below.

In Attachments, click on 'Add More Files' and then 'Choose File'. 

Browse through your computer and upload the relevant file(s).

Make sure you publish any attached files you want to use. Unpublished files cannot be linked elsewhere on your website. Remember to scroll to the bottom to Save Changes.


If you ever need to update the file (e.g. from the 2018 version to the 2019 version) simply go back to your Downloads module, and click ‘Edit’ on the file you need to update (instead of adding a completely new download) and then removing the current attachment or image and adding in a new one. This way you will not need to update any links in the text of your website.
