Room widget Image not working

bug-fixed
release-beta9

#1

I have a room widget bound to a string which is set to a URL and the image is not loading.

Here is my json, what am I doing wrong?

The rule to set the string:

rule “Startup”
when
System started
then
sFR_Image.postUpdate(“http://imgur.com/APXVQQJ.jpg”)
end

The widget:

{
“type”: “room”,
“position”: “0-0,3-2”,
“properties”: {
“label”: “Family Room”,
“photo”: {
“binding”: “sFR_Image”
},
“elements”: {
“lights”: {
“type”: “switch”,
“icon”: “light”,
“state”: {
“binding”: “gFX_FR_Lamps_S”
}
},
“motion”: {
“type”: “motion”,
“icon”: “motion”,
“state”: {
“binding”: “FR_Occupancy”
}
}
}
}
},

They work hosted locally, but not hosted on a public site. I can make this work, but would prefer being able to host on another server.

Try using https://i.imgur.com/APXVQQJ.jpg URL instead. It seems like imgur redirects it to this URL which is why it is not working.

UPDATE: Redirects are fixed for Beta 9 release.
