Images Widget: Add Bracket and Quote to image path

Hello all, my apologies if this has been covered here before; I searched and didn’t find anything.

Using HUGO’s internal OpenGraph card templates with the Netlify-CMS Image Widget, I get an error when uploading a picture to the “images” field in a posts frontmatter area.

As it stands now, when selecting or uploading an image, the path is inserted as /path/to/image.file, which gives me this error in my HUGO terminal:

error calling partial: execute of template failed: template: _internal/opengraph.html:5:43: executing "_internal/opengraph.html" at <.>: range can't iterate over /img/g

However, changing the “images” path to [“path/to/image.file”] seems to do the trick and fixes any errors.

How can I tell Netlify-CMS to format my image path as such? I’ve tried setting a default value that uses the correct syntax ( [“path”] ) but it doesn’t stick when selecting a new image through the widget.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated! Thank you!

I think there’s a better way for me to phrase this question: is it possible to define the syntax for how the path to my image is inserted into the frontmatter?
