Newbie! I Love These Widgets

MiCephia » July 26th, 2017, 3:28 am

HEY EVERYONE!


Just wanted to say hi and thank the creators of Rainmmeter for sharing their work. This is a great way for someone new like me to fiddle and learn. So far I've just tweaked the basics, but I am going to do all the plugins one by one. Pic of my first tweaks/skin.

EDIT:Since it won't let me insert image link is below. Do I have to post a certain amount of times before I can post images or size problem maybe?

The problem with your link was that Dropbox has changed recently. They used to allow "hot linking" to an image by simply right-clicking the image in your local Dropbox public folder, and getting a "shared link" that you could use places like this and create a "hot link" that just directly displayed the image.

Now the shared link you get from Dropbox is no longer a "hot link", but a regular link to a Dropbox page that displays the image. So you won't be able to use the Image

However, there is a way to fix that.

If you get the shared link from your Dropbox folder, it will look something like:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gnb7rlgjts8dn2h/J.League.png?dl=0

Before you add the Image

I fixed your post to demonstrate.

@jsmorley, @dvo,

Thank you so much. That explains it. Easy fix though. I learn quickly but might be easier just to use imgur for now. Thanks for fixing!
