Display a unique hosted image for each record

  • 1.  Display a unique hosted image for each record

    Posted 10-04-2018 16:05
    I have tried following the various posts within the community on this, but it seems that the "Allow HTML" checkbox is gone or has evolved so now none of the previous post instructions work.
    I am trying to display a unique image per record.  The image is hosted elsewhere and I have the URL for each.
    Here is what I have tried in a Formula - URL column:
    "<img src='" & [alt_2_image] &"'>"
    Thanks for any ideas / help.

    Hi Craig,

    Instead of a Formula - URL field you would actually want to put that formula into a Formula-Rich Text field type. Formula Rich Text field types essentially took over for Formula Text fields with the HTML checkbox checked. I would suggest trying that same formula out in a Formula Rich Text and see if you are still having issues, you also want to make sure the source they are being hosted from doesn't have any restrictions for access. I hope that is helpful Craig.
