Hi Brandy,

You'll want to ensure you're publishing to a local drive first and ensuring the file name and path adhere to the guidelines here.  Once you've published it, place your entire published output folder in the Public folder in your Dropbox account to share it with others.

 

Hello Ashley, I can see that Public folder option is only enabled if I have Dropbox Pro account. Is there any other way to publish my work with dropbox free account?

Thank you in advance

Follow-up question:

I just received an email from Dropbox saying:

"We’re writing to let you know that we’ll be discontinuing the ability to render HTML content in-browser via shared links or Public Folder. If you're using Dropbox shared links to host HTML files for a website, the content will no longer display in-browser."

Does this mean that our ability to use Dropbox to publish eLearning modules will be going away (as of Oct 3, they said)?

Hi Paul,

We heard similar this AM as well - and updated some documentation here. After pushing that out, we've also heard varying information from other team members about the timeline of this rollout, but it sounds like starting in October certain users won't be able to utilize Dropbox to host content. That article I linked too above has another recommendation though!
