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 whenever a member intends to upload content into a PageSeeder group.

Why a loading zone

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

  • upload a whole collection of documents at once;
  • preserve and verify the integrity of the linking (cross references) between files;
  • remove and manage the list and organization 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) document into PageSeeder as PSML documents, the loading zone allows members to select the best options for splitting the files.
