Allow external image URL opencart

  • Answered
I recently discovered this module:

But seems like only the external images on Google picasa is allowed.
I have a photobucket album and would like to use that instead, but are there other modules ? I have also come across some modules where the images would be saved on my server but would not like that option as it defeats the purpose and slows down the website.

Hello Urusaiii,

I checked on the OpenCart module site and there are hundreds upon hundreds of modules for images. Off the top of my head I do not know which one will satisfy your requirements, but there is likely at least one that will do so. Also, do not be so quick to count out delivering images from your server. The only downside is that it uses a bit more bandwidth and takes a bit more maintenance, but you will have total control over the images and they will serve faster since they are local to the site. Plus, if you are serving from another location and something happens, then your images will not display and you are at the mercy of their support until they get it back up and running.

Kindest Regards,

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a solution like this for Photobucket. You may have some luck on the OpenCart forums or contacting the developer of that plugin to see if it would be possible to add that functionality.
