Media Library

When a site is selected, the media library allows users to upload and manage images and documents specific to the selected site. Items can be displayed in four different views: list, small grid, large grid and single large view. Users can also filter the media library using the search box at the top of the page. The buttons on the bottom of the images allow users to edit, see usages of media items and delete media from the media library.
