How to change the image being shared on social media channels

Published  April 11th, 2022  by Michael Nilsson

When you share your event on social media by default you'll see an image from AddEvent.
That image can be replaced with your own very easily.

We've made a quick video where we go through the steps.

Here's how to change the image with your own. 

  1. Create a demo event in the Dashboard or select one of your existing events. Click the "Event page" icon.

  2. Scroll down to the "Custom event page" section and click "Custom templates" to create a new custom template, or to edit an existing template.

  3. Change the source for the open graph image. Additionally, you can also change the image for social sharing on Twitter. Remember to save the template. Now return to your event and set the event to use the template.

When you create an "Open Graph" image for your templates, you are recommended to follow the social media channel you are targeting.
