Media consists of the images, video, recordings, and files that you upload and use in your website. You can get to the media library on your Dashboard through Media > Media Library. On the Media Library page there are two possible views: List view and Grid view. List view will show fewer items at one time but displays some details alongside the media thumbnails whereas Grid view displays only thumbnails and can therefore fit more media on the screen. You can also filter by media type or by date of upload.
Media is typically uploaded and inserted into the content when writing a post or a page. However, you can also add media by clicking the Add New button at the top of your Media Library (or going to Media > Add New from your Dashboard).
Short File URLs
You can alter the URL pattern for your media files by going to Settings > MediaShort.
