Hey, hope everything is well. Need your help with several things:
-How do I insert an IMG from a URL? I feel like the main image element used to have an option for it, but I can’t seem to be able to find it anymore. http://www.kitconet.com/images/quotes_2a.gif is the image that I want to insert. Since I’m pulling it in from another location, if the image gif updates, will it update on our website as well?
-This is a bit trickier. The client for this website sells silver/gold items, and their pricing would depend on the price of the metal and then some other variables. Is there a way to make the pricing for certain items be based on equations, with some variables of the equations being pulled from other sources? Are there plugins for this that you know of, or would I have to get custom code done to the site?
As always, thank you so much for everything!

Thank you for the inquiry.
– You cannot insert the URL directly using an Image element if that is what you are looking for. What you can do instead is use a text or code block and manually insert an img tag and use the URL as its src value.
<img src="https://link.com/to/custom/url.jpg" />
– This is not available by default but you can hire someone to create a script that calculates the current pricing based on certain factors. Unfortunately, this is beyond the scope of support.

Are there no plugins that could work with this? This can only be done through custom code?August 5, 2022 at 8:29 pm #1360860
Thanks for the update. Is your last question referring to the adding of external images, or the price ticker? I’m guessing there are plugins or third party code for displaying various prices, but not for adding images using external URLs unfortunately.

Ye, I was talking about the price conversions. Thought maybe you’ve stumbled across this before and new some solution. I’ll look around, thank you :)August 6, 2022 at 10:34 am #1360887
Thanks for the update. We’re not aware of any plugins like that unfortunately, but there are most likely solutions out there to find.
