How to Add Images To Your Agenda

Suppose you want to include a sponsor logo on the club’s printable agenda. Or maybe you would like to include a fun graphic on the agenda for a theme meeting — here is a Saint Patrick’s Day example:

For this example, I add an image to the agenda the same way I would add an image to a blog post or the club home page. By default, the agenda consists of a series of specialized content blocks representing meeting roles and notes about the organization of a meeting. However, you can add any other kind of content WordPress can handle.

In this case, I start by inserting a new content block at the top of the agenda. If you hover your mouse between any two content blocks, or at the top of the first block you should see a little + sign button. Click the + sign button for a list of the available blocks. If you don’t immediately see the image block, there is a search function.

Uploading an image.

Once the screen shown above appears, click Upload to upload an image from your computer or Media Library to select a previously uploaded image. This will insert a full size version of the image into your post.

To make the image fit on the page better, I suggest adjusting the image size to Medium and setting the image alignment to Align Right.

Using this technique, the image you add will show up on both the agenda and the signup form.

Adding an Image To Your Standard Agenda Layout

Another possibility that might be appropriate in some cases is adding an image to the document that specified the layout of your agenda. This is probably an option that few clubs have ever paid attention to, but you can alter the default layout to change or remove the banner image at the top of the printable agenda or decide whether or not to include a sidebar on the left side of the printable agenda.

You’ll find a link to edit the Agenda Layout document on the
Settings->Toastmasters page, labeled Edit Custom Agenda Layout.

In the editor, the sidebar shows up as an editable content area with a placeholder for where the default editable content will appear. You can add an image or other content before or after that placeholder.

Here is an example, where I’ve removed the default banner at the top and added a smaller version of the Toastmasters logo at the top of the sidebar area:
