Changes to the media management from May 2020!
From May 2020, the new media library replaces the Sector media browsers for images, files and videos, and Sector sites first launched after May 2020 will take advantage of the new, easy to use, and customisable interface. Not sure if that's you? Have a quick look at the WYSIWYG toolbar - three media buttons = old, one button = new! Find out what changed in Working with the new media library.
You can add images, documents, and videos to your content directly from the WYSIWYG editor. The media browser allows you to select a file that has already been uploaded to your site, or you can upload a new one.
This article is about how to add an image - for general guidance on content editing tools see:
Adding media is part of the WYSIWYG editor tools. To add media to your body content, follow these steps:
Insert an image, document, or video by clicking the relevant button in the WYSIWYG editor toolbar ( 1 ) - this opens the pop-up media browser.
You then need to click the 'Select images' link ( 2 ).
In the media browser, you can either select an existing file from the library, or upload a new one.
You can learn more about this in our guide on Adding files using the media browser.
Confirm your choice by selecting 'Next' ( 1 ). You can then choose display options ( 2 ) for your media, before embedding it in the content ( 3 ).
Tip - Editing media that is already embedded in the editor
Double-click on the media to make changes to the display options. You can then click on the file name to edit more of the media's information.
