Thumbnails for Resources

    How do I change the thumbnails for my resources? Some of my newer resources have HTML text as the thumbnail, not ideal!

    Hmmm. I've used a lot of resources over the years - loo rolls, sticky-back plastic, cotton reels, pasta, paper, card, yoghurt pots and that sort of stuff.

    But never thumbnails.

    I usually add in several jpg files to allow teachers to peruse the resources offered more comprehensively.

    I mean the default image that shows up for my resource, what determines this?

    It is the first file you upload. I always upload a jpg or png as my first file when uploading resources.

    Yes, Charleei is correct. The first uploaded image is the one that is shown on the first thumbnail. However this was not always the case and for some of the resources that I uploaded in the early days, I've had to go in, delete them and re-upload them to make sure that the thumbnail I want to show is always at the top.
