How to configure images

First, ensure you have an image column (or multiple columns) on your Google Sheet, and proper column mapping in the SpreadSimple.

You can configure image column mapping on the Content tab

To display images on your website, SpreadSimple needs a link to an image file hosted online. E.g: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1536500152107-01ab1422f932 or https://i.imgur.com/0JSkR76.jpg

The links to images should be put as text to the corresponding cells under the image column in your Google Sheet.
