Add-On Type(s)



NOTE: This is add-on is no longer being supported and will not be updated for EE3. Fork it if you like.

Placeholder allows you to easily add placeholder images to your site.

Note: version 1.1.0 was a partial rewrite - please update your tags and params accordingly. See official site for more details.

Big deal right? Well, not really but, the nice thing about Placeholder is it currently combines 5 popular placeholder image services into one! You want cute kittens, no problem. You want dogs to chase the cute kittens, bark bark. Just need some generic non-image looking images, sure thing. How about a B&W parasailer gliding over a scenic mountain-scape? Well, I’m not sure that’s available but, it might be.
