3.4. Images & Files

Media Images

(images, audio, documents, etc.) can be uploaded by clicking the Add Media button on your Edit screen.

  1. In the Visual Editor (editing a Page view), click the Add Media button and select an image from your Media Library or upload a new one.
  2. Once the image has been selected, you can adjust its settings on the bottom right side of the page.
    • If the image you’re inserting is smaller than full-size and you’d like it to link to the full-size version, under Attachment Display Settings, click the Link To drop-down menu and select Media File.
    • If you’d rather the image link to a specific URL, click the Link To drop-down menu and select Custom URL and enter the website address.
    • For the Size, select Full Size. Once the image is inserted, you can size it down to an appropriate size. If you select a small size and then try scaling it up, the image will become fuzzy. For graphical buttons (e.g. database lists) you can use the 150px x 112px size. For images in a highlight, use the 400px wide image and scale it down to about 250px once it is inserted in your page.
  3. Click Insert Into Page. Lining up images with content requires some experimentation. Avoid the use of tables!

Media Files

At times, you’ll want to link to a file (use a PDF and not a Word file, which can pose security issues). Examples might include strategic plans, board meeting minutes, etc. Library users will see a link on the website and when they click on it, a PDF file will open.

  1. Go to the Edit screen for the page you wish to modify.
  2. Place your cursor where you’d like the link to the file to appear.
  3. Click Insert Media and click on the file you wish to include.
  4. Click Insert into page.
  5. You can change the text of the link by clicking once in the underlined text, then click on the edit icon.
  6. Click Update at the top right of the Edit screen to save your changes.
