    geoffwhite: i will look

    Unless this problem gets sorted out, can you please release a fix which will revert users to older Dropbox method keeping other enhancements of 1.6.0 entact?

    I have reverted back to 1.5.5 and its working fine now though took a bit of work coz I deactivated 1.6.0 first which deleted all options from the db so I had to get them back as well. Phew.

    I agree with Navjot Singh… I reverted back to the old version… But I get the annoying update available nag…

    Dropbox don’t accsept the outh metod that i’m use. i will look at weekend waht i do now……

    We all waiting that weekend with you 🙂


    Just add to your wp-config.php the DEFINE line in the instructions of the plugin – remove the DROPBOX word 😉

    FYI, I have version 1.4.1 on one of my site and the dropbox connection is working fine. This issue seems to only occurs with latest version.

    Thanks for the awesome plugin Daniel!

    I use it at Perishable Press and am stuck with the same error:

    [ERROR] Can not Auth with DropBox API: Only the app owner can receive access token while this app is in development mode

    Everything else works great, but looking forward to your next update.

    Thanks again, for helping the WordPress community with this excellent plugin.

    Thanks Daniel, I’m waiting too. Awesome plugin!

    thanks Daniel, we all wait for the dropbox, as I tried also S3 or Azure, but they seem to require some details I don’t understand.
    Dropbox was working that’s why it is so frustrating

    ObviousIdea: yes, but i have change from dropboxuploader to a reale dropbox api class. With the new class i can make download links and show files on dropbox or delete old backups.

    I say it again i wating for Dropbox that say give my plugin the ok.
    I hope that are in the next houers, but if the find thomthing to change agin than it will take longer. Sorrry.

    sure Daniel, I hope they will.. but I m scared about it will take ages.
    About S3 support, I don’t get what is the issue with the timing of the server, and which time zone they are looking for ?

    for Azure, I still don’t get how you post a file, but it seems you like to play with all the storage around, which is fantastic 🙂 are you available for hire for short mission ?
