Sharing Dropbox link

Hi Guys, 

I'm having a difficult time with sharing my dropbox link.

I'm new to Dropbox, but I published my project and uploaded it to my dropbox account. 

I'm sharing the story.html link but nothing happens when the link moves to the browser. It just wants me to download it and doesn't show the presentation. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm hopeful to have this resolved today, I wanted to share an interactive vday card with my GF  

Thanks!

I'm definitely not a dropbox expert, so there may be a better way to do this, but when I want to share web content from my dropbox account I create a file under the "Public" folder in my dropbox acct, upload all of my Storyline published files into this folder, then right click on your story.html file and copy the public link.

Hope this helps!

Hmmm, my Public folder was created for me by default when I joined up, but interestingly it looks like that doesn't happen anymore.

Here's the official statement from dropbox - https://www.dropbox.com/developers/blog/19

The statement refers to an API, but I'm not sure if it is necessary to use the API to create the type of link you're looking for.  There may be someone else here in the community that can weigh in and provide a definitive answer....

Yeah, it looks like they stopped creating public folders after Oct, 4th but i was able to get one established.

However, when I copy the public link and share it - my story.html file doesn't show in the browser. Just a blank screen.

Hi Ron.  I have that same problem with Firefox on one specific computer.  I think it may be a Flash issue.  Try using  another browser like Google Chrome instead .
