# Media


  • In Modyo 9 this space is called File Manager. If you migrate from Modyo 9 to Modyo 10, all assets are preserved, and you can choose beforehand which space to move them to.

This space allows you to upload, organize and manage your files in a simple and efficient way.

In Media, you can assign editing and deleting permissions to images through groups. This way, a group can have permissions to view and use assets, but it can't modify or delete them. You can upload different types of media to this space, considering the following size restrictions per file:

  • Images: 6 MB
  • Videos: 10 MB
  • Audios: 10 MB
  • Files: 10 MB

The allowed file types are:

  • Images: apng, avif, bmp, gif, ico, jpeg, jpg, png, tif, tiff, webp
  • Videos: av, avi, f4v, flv, mkv, mov, mp4, mpeg, webm, wmv
  • Audios: 3gp, aac, alac, dsd, flac, mp3, pcm, wav, m4a, ogg, wma
  • Files: 7z, ai, apk, css, csv, doc, docx, fon, ico, iso, jar, js, msi, ods, odt, otf, pdf, ppt, pptx, rar, rss, rtf, scss, tar, tex, ttf, txt, vcf, wdp, xhtml, xls, xlsm, xlsx, xml, zip, one, ecf, pub, xps, json, svg, woff, woff2, ics

# About the Interface

The interface shows you a list of all the files that exist within the platform.

In the upper right part of the screen you can see the percentage of used space corresponding to the total allocated for the account and the button to upload new files.

Modyo displays 30 files per page. At the bottom you can navigate between the file pages.

You can filter the content by:

  • Extensions: Filter by file type.
  • Author: Filter by username who uploaded the content.
  • Tags: Shows all the files associated with a tag.
  • Search bar: Type a word to display files that contain that word in their name or metadata.

Labels allow you to organize and group your files. To modify the tags of more than one file, select the files you want and click on the Add or Remove Tags button that appears at the bottom of the list.

In this view, the columns are:

  • Preview: If the platform identifies that the file is an image, you can view a thumbnail image of the file. If it isn't, the space appears blank.
  • Name: Name of the file and its extension. The order is alphabetical.
  • Type: File type and extension. The sorting is alphabetical, first by type and then by the name of the extension.
  • Size: Size in kilobytes of the file.
  • Created on: Date of upload or creation within the platform, regardless of whether the file was created on a different date on another service.
  • Author: Name of the user who uploaded the file, only when the user is assigned a name.

# Resize an image

In Modyo, you can dynamically resize an image, this lets you modify the size of the image without losing quality and ensuring that it fits the screen of your users' device. You can perform this resizing with Liquid code, in the work area where you inserted the image.


We recommend that you always use the Liquid tag of an image when including it in your content, and not the asset URL. This way, any changes you make to the image will be reflected everywhere the image is used.

To resize an image you must first copy the Liquid code to render the image, to do so:

  1. Click on content.
  2. Select the space where the image you want to modify is located.
  3. Click on media.
  4. Click on the image.
  5. Click on the copy icon, next to the Liquid tag in the image.

Once you have the Liquid code for the image, access the work area where you want to insert the image, either in templates, pages or widgets, and follow these steps:

  1. Paste the Liquid code. It should look something like this: ec0a3e4-ccdb-48c5-87be-5e1eca560dee
  2. Add the Liquid filter, it can be height, width or quality, following any of these formats:
  • asset_image: width: XXX where XXX is the desired pixel size.
  • asset_image: quality: XX where XX is the desired percentage of quality.
  • asset_image: width: XXX, quality: XX, widths: 'XXX, XXX, XXX, sizes: (min-width: XXXpx) XXXPx adapting the values according to your needs to ensure that the image fits the different screens and resolutions of your user's devices, using the [srcset] attribute (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTMLImageElement/srcset) for responsive support.
  1. Click save.
  2. Click on publish.


When you resize images, the original aspect ratio is preserved, therefore the image is adjusted proportionally, without distortions.

If you include only the height or width of the image, the missing value is automatically calculated to maintain the correct aspect ratio of the image.

# Delete a File

To delete a file, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the name of a file to open the property editing interface.
  2. Click Delete, below the image.


This action is irreversible. If the file is linked to content, you won't be able to recover it, and it will appear as a broken link.
