If you are configuring custom attributes to add images to events in Publisher, take note of the instructions for Event Custom Attributes in Preparing 25Live for Optimal Use with Publisher - Data Preparation.
Event Custom Attributes
Event Custom Attributes normally do not function as search parameters for publishing event feeds, but there are three custom attributes that play a role within Publisher for specific functionality:
- the Event Image (File Reference data type),
- the Detail Image (File Reference data type), and
- Featured Level (String data type).
Both the Event Image and Detail Image are used as part of photo-driven calendars and promotional spuds in 25Live Publisher. As file reference data types, these two custom attributes merely need to contain a link to an image that you want to populate the calendar published via 25Live Publisher. The Event Image should be a thumbnail-sized image; the Detail Image is a larger-sized version of the Event Image that would display in the Event Description details when a user clicks to open an event from a 25Live Publisher calendar. The Promo Level is used in calendars to show a subset of a feed based off the text in this custom attribute.
External Storage for Event and Detail Images
You will need to determine a storage location for both your event and detail images for use with calendars. CollegeNET does not provide a storage location for these images.
Editing Custom Attribute Images
Please note that when updating an image in a custom attribute, you will need to also update the filename. If the existing and new filenames are the same, Publisher calendars will not detect a change and your image will not be updated.
