Shorten link not working

Same problem here, it seems quite a few people still want this feature. It's how I send links to clients, I'd rather not have to shorten the link in bit.ly - get this sorted Dropbox!

What happened to the Dropbox's developers ?

Isn't it taking too long to be fixed ou, at least, explained?

Zero updates to my ticket from 12 days ago. Only acknowledgement was a generic "self-service" return mail from the Zendesk ticket system about a day after I created the ticket.

I really use this feature quite often --- The Google URL shortener won't shorten Dropbox links....goo.gl

Same here too.  I use this feature lots.  The only way I can exit the page is to use the back button on the browser

Another week of silence on my ticket.

Btw, I think this relates only to the public folder - which I think no longer exists on new versions, is that correct?

Correct. The Public folder is a deprecated feature, replaced by share links which can be created to any file or folder and not restricted to a single location. Newly created accounts (after October 2012, I believe) don't have a Public folder, and only Pro or Business accounts have the ability to create one (and I wouldn't expect that to last either).
