The issue here is that you are using Dropbox... sorry but it isnt a web hosting platform. Simply put, its blocking the files. 

 

You need to use a correct web host suitable for the job I'm afraid.

Hi Lukeyo, thank you for answering.

 

Im super new at this and want to learn html and css. Im using a simple page to do it. I need to get an image as background and Im following a tutorial to do it. Each step I did exactly what the tutorial says but the image I want to use as background is not showing up, Ive tried so many things. 

 

Im using the share button on dropbox to copy the link and paste it on the html. This is the image on dropbox:Screen Shot 2021-04-10 at 1.38.37 PM.png

this is the link produced by dropbox:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6xb3psv9z3i8qca/Bck_landing_Libro_image.png?dl=0

 

My friend told me to change the dl=0 for raw=1.  so I did.

 

This is the code from sublime:

And this is what shows in the browser:

Am I sharing the dropbox link correctly?  Can you tell what is wrong?

Thank you
