lacking pictures in story map tour despite mandatory fields

I am trying to create a hosted Story Map Tour in ArcGIS Online based on a web map.

The web map contains a Point layer (map service!) with many
different fields including the mandatory fields name, descritpion, pic_url, thumb_url. The
field pic_url contains the url for the images we want to show in the Story Map Tour.
Going through the following steps, the result in the story map builder is not
satisfactory at all! The images are lacking and only the points are showing in
the map section.


These are the steps I’m following:


  • create new web map
  • Add Layer from Web >> map Service of point layer
  • Save web map
  • Share >> all >> create a web-app >> create Story Map >> select Story Map Tour >> Create app
  • Fill in the title, tags, etc...>> OK >> Story Map Tour Builder pops open >> Pics are lacking, Points showing ...


Any advice will be appreciated!
