Accessing files upladed to server through Page Builder

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I have an audio file that is too large to upload through Page Builder. I have uploaded it to the server, located in the images folder, and I can see it in the backend of my Joomla site in Media, but cannot access the file when trying to add the Audio add on in one of my pages. Is there a way to do this?

Hi,
You can use a old trick:
First upload audio file with this same name but small file.
Then use FTP tool to replace files.

I can try this, however I feel like there should be a way to access the media files on Joomla from Page Builder.

What about addcional folders, default used by Joomla?

Nope, only images show up there. Not any other files. Also, in a page, in the Audio add-on, when trying to choose the file, cannot navigate there.

In that case, use above tip with file rename.

I did that and it worked. Thank you.

However, it might be good to incorporate a way to access the Joomla media files through the Page Builder add-ons in a future update. As a developer, I am passing the website off to a client, and if they decide to add more audio files on their own and run into the same issue, they will not be able to do this work-around.

Thanks for feedback.

SPPB file upload depends on PHP & Joomla Media settings, sure in future we have to consider alternative solution.
