Create a Folder Hierarchy
If the files you want to attach and upload are organized in a folder hierarchy on your computer, you may want to create the same folder hierarchy in the Forum entry, so that the organizational structure of the files is the same in both locations.
You can do this using either the multi-file upload applet or the standard file upload form.
To create a folder hierarchy when attaching files:
The "Add attachments folder" page appears.
The page you use for adding attachments reappears.
You can now upload files in the folders.
After you select and upload files, the folder hierarchy appears as part of the discussion entry. You can click on the plus sign to expand the hierarchy.

To add more folders to the hierarchy:
The "Create a folder" page appears.

The page you use for adding attachments reappears, displaying the folders you created. You can now upload files in the folders.
