Add, Change, or Remove a Preview Image
To Add or Change a Preview image in an asset...
You can add an image from your computer or network. Click on Change, then Upload a File. Use the Browse button in the Upload File dialogue window to search your computer or accessible network. Select the image and then select Upload File.
You can also upload an image from Dropbox. For more information about using Dropbox to upload images please see the Using Dropbox To Upload Images doc.
You can also add an image from an existing Image, YouTube, Video, or PDF asset already in your BLOX CMS. Click on Change, then Copy From Another Asset. Search for the image asset you are looking for, select it by clicking on the checkbox beside the name, and then click Add Selected Assets.
And finally you can remove the preview entirely by clicking on Change and Remove.
Best practice: You should have a preview image with your assets when applicable.
HTML is where you type, or paste the HTML code for this asset.
Best Practices: When adding a HTML asset as a child asset to an article, make sure to add code so that the asset is no more than 300 pixels wide. If the asset is more than 300 pixels, it will get cut off on the article page.
