File System Testing Page

This page is for testing file uploads configuration. I tested below recommendations except where noted and provided notes about my test below.

Recommendations

Testing Notes

For the test, I moved the a-team folder into the Documents tree from the testup tree (drag and drop in Assets menu tool), then used the Assets menu tool to upload the hero image above as well as the Mime Types Word Document and a random PDF file

I set up the a-team folder in EE File Upload Prefs, then attempted to add the quick links at left using the QuickLinks Document upload utility, but it doesn't help because that field is set to File type and the only file location options are "All" or specific folders. (I have since removed the File Upload Pref for this folder because it appeared in the main list in Assets. Currently all member groups have access to the top-level Documents and testup folders, so this redundant listing would have been confusing, but I think we could grant each member group access to only their subfolder and eliminate any confusion. This would also remove their access to other member groups documents and force them to upload docs only into their own folder where they can manage them properly.)

Options for Quick Links Files

I tested all the links on this page to make sure they worked, then moved the entire folder back under the testup tree to test that they continue to work. (Assets automatically reroutes all the links so they continue to work when the file is moved or renamed. Note: this fixes in-system links that aren't hard-coded, but search results and direct links from elsewhere will be broken unless we also add a detour like "%images/uploads/a-team%%" to "documents/a-team". At least, I think that is the correct syntax.
