Custom Attributes for Publisher Images

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 the following three custom attributes play a role within Publisher for specific functionality:

  • Event Image (File Reference data type): This should be a thumbnail-sized image.
  • Detail Image (File Reference data type): This should be a larger-sized version of the Event Image. It will display in the Event Description details when a user opens an event from a 25Live Publisher calendar.
    • Both the Event Image and Detail Image are used as part of photo-driven calendars and promotional spuds in 25Live Publisher.
    • For information on adding images to events, please see Adding Images to Events in 25Live.
  • Featured Level (String data type): Used in calendars to show a subset of a feed based off the text in this custom attribute.

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.

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.
