    I cloned your form and tested the slider widget. The following images seem to appear fine in the widget:

    To use the links from photobucket, please copy the direct link of the image.

    For your convenience, here are the direct links from photobucket:

    You can check out this cloned form where I added the slider widget with the working images: https://form.jotform.com/60681889762977

    it looks like jotform is trying to add "s" to http and this is causing it not to find photo

    for instance this works: http://www.goldsgym.com/alexandriava/wp-content/uploads/sites/62/2015/12/team-training-slider2.png

    this doesn't: https://www.goldsgym.com/alexandriava/wp-content/uploads/sites/62/2015/12/team-training-slider2.png

    or with the https removed all together it works, but I can't get it to work in slider

    www.goldsgym.com/alexandriava/wp-content/uploads/sites/62/2015/12/team-training-slider2.png

     

    No matter which way i put it in it adds the "s" to http and photos don't show up. ???

    Hello,

    Apparently slider widget can not resolve the link that leads to image so it doesn't show it right.

    Could you try to use images that are uploaded to photobucket only, for example, and see if it will work.

    I tried with images that are on photobucket, like my colleague Christian suggested, and they are working fine.

    Please try to add them to slider and let me know how that worked for you.

    Best regards.

    Hello,

    Dropbox does not allow embedding images from URL by default. You need to allow your browser to render the file.

    Change the dl=0  query parameter in the image URL to the raw=1.  When you set this query parameter in the URL of image, you tell your browser to render the image. This will enable you to embed your images.

    So, in the URL you provided, you have to delete the last part of the URL:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/dh90167ztoewovi/03-group-fitness-classes-in-alexandria-banner.jpg?dl=0

    And add the raw=1 at the end of URL:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/dh90167ztoewovi/03-group-fitness-classes-in-alexandria-banner.jpg?raw=1

    You can find more information on how to render files in browser on this link.

    Please let me know if this solves your problem.

    Best regards.
