Dropbox Features

In a dropbox public folder right click on a file, select dropbox, select "copy public link".

If I edit this image in the Dropbox folder on my computer, this image is automatically updated.

Please note: New Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 no longer have a Public folder. Don't worry! Every account created prior to this date will still have a Public folder. If you would like to enable a Public folder on a new account, see the instructions HERE. Scroll down to Creating a Public folder.

I got the weather code from Weather.com, made a web page containing that code.

I saved the page in a public DropBox folder, got the Public URL,
changed the https to http and inserted it into an iFrame gadget.

HTML Code:

<html>
<head>
</head>

<body>
<div id="wx_module_145">
   <a href="http://www.weather.com/weather/local/48867">Owosso Weather Forecast, MI (48867)</a>
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">

   /* Locations can be edited manually by updating 'wx_locID' below.  Please also update */
   /* the location name and link in the above div (wx_module) to reflect any changes made. */
   var wx_locID = '48867';

   /* If you are editing locations manually and are adding multiple modules to one page, each */
   /* module must have a unique div id.  Please append a unique # to the div above, as well */
   /* as the one referenced just below.  If you use the builder to create individual modules  */
   /* you will not need to edit these parameters. */
   var wx_targetDiv = 'wx_module_145';

   /* Please do not change the configuration value [wx_config] manually - your module */
   /* will no longer function if you do.  If at any time you wish to modify this */
   /* configuration please use the graphical configuration tool found at */
   /* https://registration.weather.com/ursa/wow/step2 */
   var wx_config='SZ=300x250*WX=FHW*LNK=SSNL*UNT=F*BGI=boat*MAP=null|null*DN=k8oms.net*TIER=0*PID=1356516263*MD5=ad5fc5720160c575fb3ddc14f6eedbb0';

   document.write('<scr'+'ipt src="'+document.location.protocol+'//wow.weather.com/weather/wow/module/'+wx_locID+'?config='+wx_config+'&proto='+document.location.protocol+'&target='+wx_targetDiv+'"></scr'+'ipt>');
