Random Image on Refresh
Managing the Image List Associated with the Random Image on Refresh Web Part
Log in to SharePoint at
Open the page containing the Random Image on Refresh Web Part
In the Ribbon at the top of the page click
Site Actions >
Manage Content and Structure
Locate the image list in the subsite and click to open.
Note: the image list you will be working with is
not the list named “Images”—it will have been created specifically to work with this instance of the Random Image on Refresh web part and will (hopefully) have been named something logical, like "students" if the web part is rotating images of students.
Add an Image to the List
Image Upload Screen
Browse, find and select the image, then click
Fill in the fields on the Image Upload Screen. At a minimum, in the LinkedUrl section type the Web address and description.
If the link is pointing to a page outside of the SharePoint system (even if it’s a Babson-owned web property such as Babson Blogs), set the Target section dropdown to
_blank. This will open the link in a new window/tab.
If the link is pointing to a page within the SharePoint system the Target can remain at _top. This will open the link in the same window/tab.

Hover over the image filename to Open Menu and click the down triangle
To delete multiple images select the checkboxes next to the filenames
Update/Replace an Existing Image or Link
Images cannot be replaced—to update an image the original must be deleted and a new one uploaded
Links (LinkedUrl field) can be updated by hovering over the image filename to Open Menu and clicking the down triangle
