Can we create our own icon for Media Items?

Modified on Tue, 30 Jan 2024 at 10:52 AM

Media items are displayed below session / sub-session descriptions. Link based media items display an icon and text. See the screenshot below. The media item with title "Contact the speaker(s) for this session" has uses a custom icon image to the left of the text.

A default image will be used if no icon URL is supplied. 

Each icon graphic you create must include the extra margin.


  • 170px wide x 140 px tall at 72dpi
  • .png file format
  • Provide sufficient margin of at least 20px to the edge of the graphic. So your icon graphic may only be 150x120 pixels in size within the image file to include the padding as shown in the sample above. 
  • Compress the graphic to ensure smallest file size using services like tinypng
  • Save the image without symbols or spaces in the file name. 
  • Upload the graphic to your server and note down the URL. Your URL must start with https:// and not http://.
    Correct URL:
    Bad URL (missing s after http:, contains symbols, spaces, and has the wrong file extension): [1] version.pdf
