...with inactive uploaded media
This method will seem at first to be more complex but it isn't. It utilises the Inactive image
feature (as described in the Exhibit Options
Upload an image on an exhibit as you normally would. Click the Tools/Edit
button underneath it and then Click the Insert image
link. This will insert a piece of code in the text box area of your exhibit like:
< media:gimg 'image.jpg' />
This is a code representation (or hook
) of the media image file that you uploaded and can be used anywhere you like in your indexhibit site.
By default a media/asset file is Active
- this means that it will show up as part of the exhibit format.
Change this by clicking the Inactive
radio button and then the Update
The media file will be usable, but it wont show up as part of your exhibit format (it is easy to spot an inactive media file by the red border around its thumbnail).
Then cut/paste the code from the text box area, into the Pre-Nav Text
area or any other part of your theme - again don't forget to click the Update
