Display images from Google Drive

    I struggled with getting images to show up and then 10 minutes later they started showing up. (update: now they have disappeared again...something with google?? strange)

    There seems to be some delay, at least for me right now.

    I also noticed that not all shareable links follow the same format as you noted above but I discovered that the https://drive.google.com/file/d/ format never shows my pictures.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/xyz  - you get this if you click the share button (won't show images for me)

    but if you right click on file select "get shareable link" you get this format which will show my pictures.


    where xyz = unique ID

    While I have your attention...and being new to the NEW Google Sites.

    Can I get the slideshow into the banner?

    Hi Pvrmextv,

    Please share us your Awesome Table view and your spreadsheet at "support@awesome-table.com". If you have sensitive data, make a copy with similar data.

    Thank you.

    Hi Pvrmextv. 

    Using the URL from the get shareable link won't work.

    You could try an alternative solution that's always worked for me. You can see the details here -  https://goo.gl/VfEiW7.

    Here's a post where I replied and shared a live demo using the method shared above in an AwesomeTable SlideShow - https://goo.gl/JenH8Q.

    Note: You cannot insert scripts (SLideShow) inside the New Google Sites' header / banner. This is a limitation on their part.

    Is there an easy and automated way to display an image-gallery with images that got uploaded to Google-Drive by users using the upload-function of a Google-Form, in Awesome-Table?

    Hi Mahernioio,

    You can use a formula in your spreadsheet to retrieve the ID of the image and add it to the URL of the example above.
