How to add content and publish

STEP 1 Basic information

It is essential that you add useful information to publish alongside your files. As a minimum, we require* you give your item a title and description, and tell us who created it. Also add Categories & Tagsand although optional, these are important and make items easier to find. The technical term for this is giving items Metadata, which simply means describing the file with details on: Who, What, When, Where
