The information in this article is relevant only for Pro users at this time. For information about booking websites for Lite users, refer to the Guesty Booking Engine

There are several options for managing and importing the content that is used across your site. You can collect content directly from your client, or use the Media Manager to import and manage content from your computer, social media, or the provided free and premium content. You can add up to 15,000 images, videos, audio clips, and files per site. The image, audio, and file size limit is 50MB per file and the video size limit is 200MB per video.



Note:

  • Any file (text, image, video, and so on) uploaded to the system is publicly available. No personal and/or confidential information should be uploaded. To remove the file completely, delete the file from the picker.
  • Changes made to specific widgets on the site override content added to the Content menu.

To access content, in the left panel, click Content.

Content can be imported from your computer, Facebook, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Photos, Instagram, or via a web search. Once imported, you can add any variety of content types to folders and then access the content in various site widgets. This is helpful when you want to work page-by-page and have one folder per page.
