Capture and Insert Media into Drupal

To capture media and then insert it, go to the desired area within Drupal (e.g. create an article or page, or navigate to a post you'd like to comment on).

Within the text editor, click the Warpwire icon . A Warpwire interface window will open as a popup. The first step is to select the Media Library you'd like to work with. The drop down menu in the upper-right of the popup will list all of the Media Libraries that you have access to. Pick the one you'd like to insert files from, or upload/record files to.

Once selected, you'll see the contents of that Media Library.
