Generate: Dynamic Elements: Remote Image

The Remote Image shortcode imports a remote image URL into the Media Library, and displays it for each generated Page.

This image is stored in your Media Library.

Just want to display a remote image URL without importing it? Use HTML within the Classic Editor, Gutenberg or your Page Builder.

Adding: Classic Editor / TinyMCE

To add a remote image within the Classic Editor:

  • Ensure that you’re using the Visual Editor by clicking the Visual tab:
    Page Generator Pro: Dynamic Elements: TinyMCE: Visual Editor Tab
  • Click the Remote Image icon in the Visual Editor toolbar (picture frame):
    Page Generator Pro: Dynamic Elements: Remote Image: TinyMCE Icon

Adding: Classic Editor / TinyMCE: Text Editor

If you’re using the Text editor instead of the TinyMCE Visual Editor above:
Page Generator Pro: Dynamic Elements: TinyMCE: Text Editor Tab

  • Click the Image URL button in the toolbar:
    Page Generator Pro: Dynamic Elements: TinyMCE: Text Editor: Buttons

Adding: Gutenberg

To add a Remote image within Gutenberg:

  • Click the plus icon between two existing blocks, or towards the top left corner of the Gutenberg editor
    Page Generator Pro: Generate: Dynamic Elements: Gutenberg: Add Block
  • Start typing Remote Image into the Search for a block field, and click the Remote Image option that appears within the Page Generator Pro section
    []
  • Follow the Configuration section below for each of the fields displayed in the right hand sidebar’s block panel:
    []

Adding: Page Builders

To add a Remote image within any Page Builder that supports a Text Editor widget/module using the Classic Editor (sometimes known as TinyMCE), refer to the Classic Editor instructions above.

Refer to the Dynamic Elements Documentation for details specific to your Page Builder.

If your Page Builder does not provide a Text Editor widget/block that uses the Classic Editor, you can still use Dynamic Elements.  However, you’ll need to manually build the shortcode, inserting it into your Page Builder’s content – for example:

[page-generator-pro-remote-image parameter="value" ...]
