As things happen in your community or with your business, you will want to be sure to make updates to your website! Keeping content current is key to having a dynamic website.

Updating photos

To update the photos on a web page, you must first select the page you want to update by going to Website > Manage Webpages and selecting the page you want to edit.

Once you have selected and opened the web page, you will view the admin side of the page and the various content blocks that build the page.

Once you locate the photo you want to update, you will need to select the image button in the toolbar for that content block:

NOTE: If there is no photo currently used here, you will see the gray 'photo box', as viewed in this example.

Once you click the image button in the toolbar, you will be able to add an image or embed a video (see https://help.locable.com/en/articles/347204-embedding-a-video-or-3rd-party-widget-on-your-site for details on embedding a video).

From here you have 2 options: To Upload an Image OR to Browse your Media Library for the image you want to use.

Upload Image

If the image you want to use has not yet been added to your Media Library, you can click Upload Image to browse your computer and select the new photo to display here.

Choose the image you want to upload and click 'Open'. Once you do, you will then need to click 'Save'. This will save the image to your Media Library AND add this image to the content block.

Browse Library

If the image you want to use has already been added to your Media Library, you can click Browse Library to choose the new photo to display here.

Click on the photo you want to use and then click 'Save'. Once you do, you will view the page with the newly selected photo. If there are no more changes to be made on the page, click 'Save Changes' at the bottom of your screen.

NOTE: If you Save the photo in the photo selection dialogue box and do not save the page, your new photo will not be saved to the page.

BE SURE TO PREVIEW YOUR CHANGES

Once you have saved your changes on the web page, you will want to 'Preview' the page so you can see how the image looks once the formatting and styling of your website are added. The photo WILL look different on the admin side than it does 'in real life' on your website.

At the top of page you will want to click 'Preview' to make sure you are happy with the new image on the page.

If the image does not look the way you want it to, you may need a new image or you may need to change the orientation of the photo. We always recommend using a landscape orientation if you can.

The nice thing is, if you aren't loving the new look, it's very easy to change it!
