How to Insert an Image Into a Description

Several modules in Member365 have a Description field. If you wish to add an image to the description of an Event, a Membership Category, or any other module to which a description can be applied, continue reading.

Edit the Description

1. Locate the ‘Description’ field. This is usually on the first page when creating or editing a module. When configuring Membership Categories or Events, it will be in the ‘Overview’ tab. For this example we will be using an Event description, however the same process applies for inserting images into any description.

If you are not familiar with the process to create an Event, or the process to create a Membership Category, consult those Knowledge Base articles first.

Uploading the Image

2. Click the ‘Upload File’ icon. It is the button with an image of a file on it. The button is located on the bottom row of icons that appear above the ‘Description’ text box.

4. Select which library you wish to use.

‘Shared Media’ is a site-wide library of images that you and other administrators have uploaded.

‘My Media’ is a site-wide library of files that only you have uploaded.

Uploading a New Image

If you wish to insert an image that you have used before, and if the image is already in your library, skip to Step 9 under the ‘Inserting an Image into the Description’ subheader.

If you are uploading a new image, continue reading.

5. Click the ‘Upload Here’ button.

6. A ‘Choose Files’ button will appear. Click it to upload your image.

7. Locate the image you wish to upload from your device’s file library. This process may vary depending on your device and web browser. Typically, you just need to click the file, then click ‘Open’.

A note on file names and extensions:

For best practice, avoid image names with dashes (), underscores (_), or any other special characters. We recommend keeping your image names simple: use only numbers or letters if possible, and rename your files before uploading them to Member365 as needed.

We recommend choosing image files with .jpg, .png, or .gif extensions. Other image extensions may not be compatible with Member365 depending on the module.

8. Upon successful upload, your image will now show in the list of media files.
