External image plugin from rest api

Patrick T. asked 7 months ago


Currently, I import products into my WooCommerce from a rest api.

I would like to know if with the External image plugin, I can easily import the image links of my products from this rest api.

Thank you.

Yes – all you need to do is set the postmeta value of external_image_url to contain the | pipe separated image URLs from your image server.

Then, the next time the image is viewed or images are accessed, our code will run to turn your pipe separated URLs into internal media attachments and then spoof WP into believing these images are uploaded.
