I'm having a problem with the image widget. I'm trying to link to an image but it always seems to be a broken link. I have tried to upload the image to google photos and Dropbox but it never works.

Hi there, when I try to access that link it also doesn't work for me.  I believe it requires a sign-in first.  You would have to use a direct link to the actual file wherever it is stored, with no authentication required.  I haven't used Dropbox in ages (and don't recommend it) and am not sure if they have changed anything, but it used to be that you needed to have the file you wanted to share in the "Public" folder.
