Thanks for your post. What you are doing looks right, except that you can skip creating the Pageimages field. PW would rather do that internally. So this is the entirety of what you should do (after you have your $page object): <?php $page->images->add("path or URL to image"); $page->save(); If you are doing this from a template file (as opposed to a shell script or admin module), you have to turn the output formatting off first, as you saw. This is to ensure that you don't accidentally add runtime-formatted content to a page and save it. By "runtime-formatted", I mean entity encoded, markdown, etc. This example might better explain it: <?php $mypage = $pages->get(123); echo $mypage->title; // value is "Products & Services" $mypage->setOutputFormatting(false); echo $mypage->title; // value is "Products & Services" Now lets say that you did this instead: <?php $mypage = $pages->get(123); $mypage->title = "Great " . $mypage->title; $mypage->save(); If ProcessWire let you save that page, the 'title' field would now have this value the next time you viewed it: Great Products && Services Basically, PW only wants to save content in an unformatted "clean" state. It throws that error asking you to set output formatting OFF in order to protect against you corrupting your content. So to follow up from the first example, this is what you should do if you are doing this import from a template file: <?php $page->setOutputFormatting(false); $page->images->add("path or URL to image"); $page->save();
