Getting Started, Helpful Tips, and FAQ


Adding images to your page is a simple process, but there are several options to be aware of.

First, click the plus sign that displays to the left of your cursor and choose the image option. We call this an image block.

You will see a list of files from your computer. Navigate through this list until you find the file you wish to add to your page. You can double click the file name or click it once to select it, then click the 'open' button. The image will load. Give it a few seconds to adapt to the size of your screen.

Once your image is loaded you have several options. Click on the image and a black admin bar will pop up. This bar contains:

  1. An edit link
  2. Justification links
  3. A size link
  4. The option to delete the image

The Edit Link

Click the edit link to:

  • Add a caption. This caption is used by website readers frequently used by those with eyesight issues. Make  habit of always using this caption to describe the image so those who use website readers can "see" the image.
  • Choose whether you want the Caption to show for everyone or not. Choosing no will still make the caption available to website readers.
  • If you would like to link the image to another page or website, add a link to the Link field the same way you would add a link to text. 
  • If you would like to link the image to a document, use the cloud with the up arrow to the right of the link field to upload the file to which you want to link.

Justification Links

By default the image will enjoy it's own space - the full width of whatever space into which you are inserting the image. You may choose to change this by using the Justification links. If you Justify the image left, text and images that follow the justified image will wrap to the right. If you justify the image right, the text and images that follow will wrap to the left.

You may also center the image.

If you change your mind, just click the justification link again to undo it.

Image Display Sizing

The two small arrows will allow you some sizing options.

  • Full will use the actual size of the image as the system guide for display. A really large image will be reduced to a size that will fit in the space, a small image should display in it's actual size.
  • Large, Medium and Small will display at a predefined width no more than 100% of the available display space

Try clicking through the sizes to decide the best view of any particular image.

Deleting an Image

Simply click the image to open the admin bar and click the trash can!
