Media link broken only in Fully Kiosk

Ryan Teeples 12 months ago in Media Tiles / Images • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 12 months ago 3

I have an odd issue where one of my links to a media image won't work in Fully Kiosk. Works in Chrome (top image). Any ideas?

Hi Ryan,


  1. Can you please paste a text version of the URL? I don't want to retype it from your screenshot and make a typo.
  2. What version of Android are you using? Same tablet and browser for your Chrome test as Fully?
  3. Are you using the latest version of Fully?


Thanks,

...Terry.

Android version 7.0, yes same device using both browsers (also works in Chrome desktop)

Fully v. 1.23


It's an Android Webview related issue, not Fully's fault (and probably not Android's fault either: It is likely the website owner (stockcharts.com) explicitly blocking it.


  1. Email that link to yourself.
  2. Open Gmail App.
  3. Click on the link. Gmail opens a Webview session. On my phone, the image fails to load.

I have to remind you and everyone, that embedding an image from a 3rd party website is considered "stealing" by the website owners, and thus, they are justified to employ blocking methods.
