The Page Designer extension includes a static field to contain an image. I often use this field to contain our company logo on the header of a Page Designer template. The static field requires that you specify an image URL. Up to this point, I have used a single record in a “globals” table to host the company logo in an attachment field; grab the logo’s AirTable URL and set the Page Designer static image field accordingly.
This is now broken. I believe it’s because of the AirTable attachment URL security feature, making the URLs dynamic after a couple hours (something like that).
I have no other way of hosting the company logo on a public URL. Page Designer has no method of “uploading” an image instead of the URL reference as I understand it.
How can I fix this? Is there an alternative method of hosting the image without using another 3rd party service? Is there a way to shut off the dynamic URL on attachments for a single record? Will Page Designer be updated to include a feature to upload the image instead of a URL reference?
This is for a static image that is the same for all records in Page Designer. The actual image is in a different “globals” table in a different record from the main table/record in Page Designer. Thus, it isn’t possible to add the attachment field itself to the page. It would be possible to link all the records to this control record and pull the image across with a lookup field, but that is a maintenance headache and will slow down the base. I think Cloudinary is a better alternative.
