Embed Image broken?

Embed Image broken?

In the past I was able to embed images to, for example, AO3, by using the share link and changing the "dl=0" to "raw=1". This seems to no longer be the case. The code clears but the image does not show up. As this was essentially the only reason I use dropbox at all, and a feature that was core for the majority of image-using AO3 users, I am rather distraught. If the code has changed, that will break all the art that I have posted. And worse, if the feature is not available at all, then I will have to find another host entirely.

Huh, it did, but I could not pinpoint what the problem was - I turned off half my extensions and the images were visible, but when I turned them all back on one by one they never disappeared again. So problem solved I guess?

Hi there @Ifer, thanks for reaching out to the Dropbox Community.

 

This feature is actually still available, so is it possible that the app you're trying to embed images to, no longer supports this?

 

Also, if you're an app developer using this in your own code, can you please make sure that your app can follow redirects?

 

Let me know what you find.

I am not a developer. I am using Chrome and Firefox on windows desktop. AO3, the website that I am trying to embed on, is a fan archive.

It seems to be displaying today on Chrome but not on Firefox.

Hi @Ifer, if you try to clear the cache on Firefox or restore your browser to its default settings and disable any browser plugins, do you notice any difference?

Hmm, strange, but happy to see that your images now display correctly.

 

If you come across any issues again, let us know.

 

Have a great day!
