New Folder Create

We made Quix with all the small details. That's a reason we included folder options. Now why do you need it?

Imagine you need to insert a of picture in the gallery option of the site. But you have 100s uploaded. Let's say some of them are of natures, some of them are of birds, and some of them have only peoples. Now if you leave them scattered it will be tough for you to insert the one you're looking for.

To get you out of this trouble, we decided to make this folder option. If you keep similar images in one folder and different images in other then you don't have to search them and waste your valuable time. 

New File Create

In the media manager you'll have the option to create a new file. It will allow you to create a text file, php file, doc file etc. Now you might a have a question, why do you need it? Or, is it necessary?

Quix is for everyone. So the new files option will be helpful for the sites holding documents. You can create a text file along with extension, save it and provide the user to download it or keep it for yourself. It can be licence key holding text file or 'read me' file.
