Placeholder Images


#1

Would love the option to display an image placeholder (like a silhouette of a person or landscape) when there is no linked image available from the CMS. Use case: A user's bio doesn't have an uploaded image, but the bio template is built to include an image.

It would be nice if we could provide a "default" image.


#2

That is a good suggestions.

It will take the development of logic within the CMS language. I think the Webflow team is working on template logic so hopefully this is something they include.


#3

Could you just set a placeholder image as the background of the element, and have any uploaded images load over the top?


#4

I suppose you could in some cases. With my particular design, uploaded images may have some transparent areas, which would reveal the background. It is a good workaround though.
