Support » Plugin: Simple Dropbox Upload » Dropbox Path

  • Resolved svanpraagh


    I set this plug-in up and it sends to my ftp correctly, but does not send to my dropbox at all. I tried keeping the path blank, to see if it went into the root of my dropbox, but no luck. I wasn’t sure if I was typing in the path wrong, where along the path I should even start, etc.

    The path I am trying to use is:
    Dropbox/Customer Service & Marketing (6.9.12)/Management Companies/_Documents

    Additionally, when the form submits, it goes directly to a blank page and doesn’t show my thank you text, and other aspects of my wp template are missing too.

    Please help! Thanks

    Please confirm that you have CURL set as the default method and click submit and try again.

    Okay, almost there! It is now properly sending to the thank you page and submitting to dropbox. However, it won’t submit to the specific dropbox folder I want:

    Error: Forbidden. This could mean a bad OAuth request, or a file or folder already existing at the target location.Invalid or missing signature

    It probably has to do with how my folders are named, possibly the spaces? It works when pushing to Photos, but not when pushing to Camera Uploads. Any idea as to how I should write the path with spaces and any other characters? (e.g. / . ) ( )

    Thanks for your help and quick reply!

    I would substitute the spaces with underscores and I don’t believe you can use special characters in the folders with dropbox but im not 100% on that.

    Just tested it. You can refer to folders with spaces by replacing the spaces with %20.

    Thanks for all your help.

    I will have to take a look at the function that is supposed to strip out the spaces since its clearly not working lol. Glad I could help.

    Does the DropBox path need a “/” in front of the folder name?

    You could be more clear on that on the user interface and the instructions.
