    thank you for your comment.

    I know i need to use a img tag to show an image, and this is the issue I am facing in widget. I can add plain text and a tags. But when i try to add anything similar as <img src="img_girl.jpg" alt="sample image"> wordpress throws a 404 error and someting 403 errors.

    I do apologize.
    I have to admit that I did not finish watching your video the frist time.

    I see the admin-ajax file it throwing a 403.
    Have you disabled your cache on your site? (or wp-rocket, jetpack)
    Do you have CludFlare running on the domain?
