I Can't Upload My Files

If you're having trouble uploading your files, follow the troubleshooting steps.


Step 1: Check your file

  • The file size should be less than 10MB. 
  • The file types we support are these:
    txt, pdf, doc, xls, ppt, pages, key, numbers, wps, jpg, png, gif, mp3, mp4, wav, flac, m4a, docx, xlsx, pptx, odt, odp, epub, zip, zipx, 7z, rar
    If your file type is not above, you can convert it to zip, rar file. 
  • Each plan has a limit for storage:
    • Limited plan: 1GB
    • Pro plan: 3GB
    • VIP plan: 10GB


Step 2: Exit the editor and try again

Exit your editor by clicking "EXIT" from the bottom left. Enter your editor and try to upload again. This is a way to refresh your editor.


Step 3: Check if it's the browser issue

Upload your file using a different browser or Incognito or Private browsing - to make sure that certain browser extensions don't affect the process or the site you are loading.

  • Chrome:
    • SHIFT + Command + N (Mac);
    • CTRL + SHIFT + N (Windows)
  • Firefox:
    • SHIFT + Command + P (Mac);
    • CTRL + SHIFT + P (Windows)


Step 4: Check internet connection

Weak or intermittent internet connections can sometimes cause uploads to fail. 


Step 5: Avoid having multiple site editors open

Multiple site editors open will intervene with each other, causing the editor not able to function normally.
