Allow Dynamic Media URLs in Products and Categories Store View When enabled, lets you include links to dynamic media assets in products and category fields. Options Include:
Yes: Allows you to insert images from Media Storage into product and category description fields. The easiest way to insert a Dynamic Media URL is to use the editor. A Dynamic Media URL is an internal reference, and is formatted like this:
{{media url="path/to/image.jpg"}}
No: Does not permit Dynamic Media URLs to be included in product and category description fields. Any existing links to Dynamic Media URLs become broken links if this setting is later disabled.
Note: Using Dynamic Media URLs can impact the performance of catalog search.
