    Hello i would like to know if it can be possible to add the feature to easily set the max file size upload.

    Another feature is particular but i think useful. Will be useful if it's possible to "append" a prefix to the filename uploads.

    As i can get the username of a registered user via php function in this way if i can use it as prefix for files i can distinguish who uploaded it.

    I am currently working on the feature to grab the username if the user is logged in and add it to the file name. I will look into adding an upload size limit also.

    Just curious... do you use the Jaka Jancar php class http://jaka.kubje.org/projects/dropbox-uploader/ ?
    Here is another uploader with this implementation http://www.ampercent.com/dropbox-uploader-allow-users-upload-files-dropbox-account/

    No I don't. The class that Jaka Jancar uses is the first version of the dropbox API which they are phasing out.

    i ask for another feature. It is possible to implement another way to authorize the plugin as many shared host that i see don't allow OAuth.

    I have the error Step 3: Confirming authorization...
    Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Dropbox_Exception_RequestToken' with message 'We were unable to fetch request tokens. This likely means that your consumer key and/or secret are incorrect.

    For example creating an app in Dropbox Developers and put the key in settings page of Simple Dropbox Upload in WordPress it will be not so much painful for us that use the plugin.

    please don't kill me... another feature request that i will like to see:
    limit submissions per member/day

    eg. each registered user could do max 1 upload per day.

    Maybe this could be done with a wp table that stores submissions with an id and setting some variables
    $today = date("Y-m-d");
    $ip =$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

    then doing a select count query.
