Subject: How to link to uploaded file? [solved]
Hello everyone.

This is a very basic question, but I could not find a solution for it anywhere. People mostly seem to talk about more complex problems or plugins, but that is not what I am after.

My problem is the following.

I uploaded the file magic.zip using the "Upload images and other files" button. But when I saved the edit, I could not see the file. Where is it gone, and how can I link to it? I would like to be able to have something like:

"Download magic.zip by clicking >here<"

It seem like it should be possible, but I just can't figure out how :/

Hello,

You must write a link syntax to the magic.zip in the page.
I think following pages may help you to find a way;
   https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:syntax#media_files
   https://www.dokuwiki.org/media_manager

Please look at the "namespace tree" panel in the media manager window.
You may find any files you have uploaded by clicking the  tree items (=namespace).

Thanks a lot!

For posterity:
What I was missing, is that the "upload image" button is actually more like "open file manager" button. Not only can I upload files there (to the proper location, by selecting the proper place on the left side), but after the file is uploaded, I need only to click on it to create a link to it.
