KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - Display JPG link

KB Admins may want to provide a link of a JPG file, as opposed to embedding the image into their document. This way, space on the page is not used and the User may download the image, if they wish. This document shows you two ways to display a link to an image in a document.

  1. Open JPG on same page

    End Result: Click here to see the Bat Diagram
    • Upload image into Document Attachment Folder. For this example, the image is called "batwing_diagram.jpg".
    • In the document editor, type out the Document Attachment Folder URL plus the image name.
      Example: /images/group41/69336/batwing_diagram.jpg
    • Create a link by highlighting that URL, click on the LINK button and give the link a name.
  2. Create a zipped file, a user will be asked to download the JPG and use their own extraction methods.
  3. End result Plain: Download this Zipped JPG
    End result of New Win: Download20170223220915.zip

  • Upload image into document attachment folder
  • Open Attachment folder and click on the checkbox of the image you would like to zip and click on the Zip selected for downloading button. In the image below, the checkbox next to batwing_diagram is checked. Even though the checkbox is in the Delete column, this image will not be deleted if you select Zip selected for downloading.
  • zipspecificimage.jpg

  • A zipped file will appear in the Attachment field in the Document editor with the date and time of creation. Click on the Plain link to place the link in your KB document.
  • Clicking on the Plain link will yield this result: Download20170223220915.zip. To change the name of the link, highlight the link and rename it.
  • Clicking on New Win link will ask you to "enter a name for the link" and open the image in a New Window.
