#1 Dropbox

Dropbox, the secure document sharing site, have changed the way things work on accounts created before 2012. Basically they are deprecating the 'Public' folder which means that after 16th March 2017 the links from that folder will not work. :banghead:

I have spent most of today changing all the Dropbox links in the Forum KB to the new format so there will be no problem accessing the material if you need it. However the old links have been copied/pasted into about 180 posts and I don't feel the urge to go through them all and make the edits. If you happen across a post with a "https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/xxxx" link in it that does not work let me know and I will edit it, otherwise go to the KB for the live link. If you use Dropbox for sharing documents or photos you should check to see if you are affected by visiting their web site or Forums: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Sharing ... 906#M11718

If none of this makes sense then you are not affected so need not worry - the KB is safe!
