    I set up the slide show with images (730x320px) but it doesn't work.

    The images are hosted on dropbox or Google Drive and set as public files.

    If you have an image in Dropbox and this one is public, all you need to do is to get the link

    I did it but doesnt work thats why I'm here. As you can see in my screenshot the little "icone link" at the top left of my slideshow is broken. I try also with Google Drive service but it's the same thing.

    My images are 730x320px.

    I think the problem is because of my images size. Don't you think ?

    Note of the slideshow extension :


    Add links to your images here and separate them with a new line. Make sure that your image width and height must be the same with the form question property width and height."

    Where can I change my "form question property width and height"?

    Hello lerhyc,

    We are unable to see the screenshot you have shared. Please share the screenshot again and we will take a look. The following guide should help you in uploading image in your forum post:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/277033 

    Alternatively, it is possible to upload image in your form and then you can use it in widget. Please check the following thread where I have explained the steps to upload images:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/393576

    I read your link. I know how to upload static images.

    I used Dropbox to host my images (set as public).

    Are you able to see the screenshot below now ?

    I assume this is the jotform http://www.jotform.ca/form/43168097313254 as I was able to see what you meant when I checked the form


    I could see that you have provided the images URL from your dropbox link


    but it seems that the URL of the images from Dropbox where not able to work on the Slider widget.

    What I suggest you do instead is just use the existing images you have uploaded to jotform already.



    I did that on a test jotform http://www.jotformpro.com/form/43173960986972 and it works



    Please try on your end. Inform us if you need further assistance.
