CMS Quick Tips: Sidebar

Sidekick? Sidebar? Yes – it’s confusing. The sidebar is that bar on the left side of an edit window where you can see and search for digital assets. Yet, with so many images, PDFs, etc. in the asset manager, finding what you are looking for can be difficult. But, it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a tip – did you know you can search for images by path? Meaning, you can find all the images under a specific folder if you’d like.

  1. In the search bar, type: “path:/content/dam/”
  2. After that last “/” the system will start looking for folders within the asset manager. Select your folder (in our case, Web Communications).
  3. To get more than 30 images to show in the sidebar, add: limit:100 (this will return 100 results)
