25Live allows you to add images to events via two custom attributes types:

  • File reference - Enter a URL to an image located on the web
  • Image - Upload a new image for your event or select an image from your Series25 database. (See Adding and Managing Images for a list of supported image types.)

Administrator note: security required to upload images

A user must have "Upload Images" permissions configured in Series25 Group Administration to perform this function.


To Add an Image Using a File Reference

1. Add or Find the Custom Attribute in the Event

Types of image custom attributes
Image: File reference custom attributes have a field to complete and an edit icon.

First, select an Event Type. The Event Form does not display custom attributes until an event type is selected, and only custom attributes set up for the chosen event type display by default. 

Look for the Custom Attributes section in the Event Form, and find any file reference fields to add an image.

2. Edit the URL Field

Use the Edit icon (Edit icon) to enter editing mode, then type in a URL that points to an image hosted on another website. Tap or click outside the field to save your entry.

3. Continue Creating or Editing Your Event and Save

After finishing other fields on the Event Form, use the Save button.

To Add an Image Using an Image File

1. Add or Find the Custom Attribute in the Event

Types of image custom attributes
Image: Image custom attributes use an "Edit" link to select or upload an image.

Be sure you've chosen an Event Type.

Look at the Custom Attributes section in the Event Form for an image attribute with an Edit link.

2. Use the Edit Link to Select or Upload an Image

3. Continue Creating or Editing Your Event and Save

After finishing any other Event Form fields, use the Save button.

To Add or Edit an Image From Event Details

1. Go to the Event Details View for Your Event

Image: Any link on an event name will take you to its Event Details view.

The name of each event in 25Live is a link you can use to view its details.

2. Find the Custom Attributes Section

You can expand or collapse each section in the Details view using theExpand collapse icon icon in the heading bar.

3. Add or Edit the Desired Image Custom Attribute

Image: Use the Add a Custom Attribute button to add, or you can edit an image attribute already associated with the event.

If you need to add a new image, use the Add a Custom Attribute button.

If you're editing an image attribute already associated with the event, find it in the Custom Attributes section.

4. Make Sure the Image Information Saves

If adding or editing an image file reference, 25Live's inline editing will save your changes when you click away from the URL field.

If adding or editing an image file, use the Upload button after choosing or uploading an image.
