Hi again community.

I am making use of the tour node image component in my skin. Is there a way to dynamically change the tour node image from either a variable or placeholder? I am assuming that the node image is actually generated to image format on tour export and that what I am trying to achieve is not possible, but thought i'd ask. If this is possible it will save me duplicating a lot of menu items.

Let me know if I haven't explained what I am trying to achieve clearly enough.
Thanks!

Hi,
The best way to do this is to use a node image in a cloner and hide it.
Then use an External Image Loader to show them.
So when you build the output the cloner will generate all the thumbnails in the images folder.

Then you can use a logic block to display each image in the External Loader.

Hopki, is it possible to use placeholders in the External URL of an external image?
