This Contao extension add a new field to assign image files for each page. Using these images, the Page Image front end module can:

  • output the image as page content (e.g. as a header banner)
  • generate CSS to apply the image as a background to <body> or an element.

Note: In version 4, the two separate front end modules have been merged and the change from image to CSS happens through custom front end templates!


  • Multiple images per page
    If more than one image is assigned to a page, the front end module can decide which n-th image should be shown. This means you can (for example) have a header and footer image per page. Make sure to correctly order them in the page configuration.

  • Inherit images from parent page
    If the current page has no image assigned, images from the parent page can optionally be inherited to all child pages.

  • Support for responsive images
    In both the mod_pageimage or mod_pageimage_background templates, Page Image fully supports Contao's responsive image settings (using <picture> or @media query respectively).

  • NEW: metadata support
    Version 4 adds support for file metadata. Same as with content elements, metadata can be defined in the file manager and can be selectively overridden in the page configuration.
