Addimg image to Image Widget using URL was working fine until last week.

Example URL:

Since past couple of days its not showing the image in the widget and when I got edit the url in the widget it is showing Invalid Url error.

Another change I noticed that, earlier the link used to open image in the browser but now it is opening the image by redirecting to It still display image in the browser when &authuser=1 is removed. But any of the link used in the widget throws invalid error message.

Any ideas about this development or work around to this problem will be highly appreciated.

When I change /download? in the link to /view?, it shows 404 error in the browser.


When &authuser=1 at the end is removed, it still is displaying in the image in the browser. But when the link is used in image widget of Experience Builder, it say invalid link.

The way I arrived at the link above is by using the following format first:<Image Id>/edit

In your image case will be

Then, I dragged the image to obtain the final link


Hope this helps
