Using field values for link URL in AGO vs Explorer Online

I have been trying to create a pop-up in AGO that uses a stored URL in a table field as a link. For example, I have a feature class that has a field called picturelink (text field) containing URLs of pictures as text. In the AGO pop-up I want to configure a link to these pictures with URL = {picturelink}, rather than manually typing the URL. This does not get accepted in AGO, but it does work that way in Explorer Online pop-ups.

Is this a known fact with a reason behind it, a bug in AGO, or just 2 different ways of doing things?

Thank you,
