I have a client that I am building a website for.
He's a lawyer and has a folder for each of his clients.
He would like to have a place on his site for them to access their folder contents, (as in upload - view - download). The folders are obviously not public.
I can see where being able to iframe dropbox.com would work, if only it did work. I search and this is the closest answer I can find. https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Sharing-and-collaboration/Adding-dropbox-folders-to-wordpress-websit...
The problem is that they don't mention specifically what 3rd party plugin or app they are referring to.
Can you help? Like my client I also do the same with all of my website build clients (share individual folders for all of the digital assets).
As a security precaution, the Dropbox web site does not allow itself to be iframe'd. Dropbox does offer an API you can use to integrate custom Dropbox functionality into your app. E.g., the API offers the ability to programmatically, list, upload, and download files, among other operations.
I can't speak to third party solutions, but for reference, you can find everything you need to get started with the Dropbox API, including documentation, tutorials, and SDKs here:
I agree with the above. I kmow my way about a wordpress site, but am not a coder. Your information on how to embed files in the developer instructions is gobbledygook to me! A trusted 3rd party app seems to be missing - where I would expect it to be.
has this been enabled yet? I would really love to have a read only dropbox folder displayed in my wordpress site. Benefits are numerous -- not having to build a list of files that point to dropbox files, not bogging down my wordpress database with files that I dont want to store there. Easy to use.... I am sure there are more benefits. Did anyone come up with a plugin to do this yet?
@mjottii I can't speak to what other third parties may have implemented, but on the Dropbox side there are a few updates (though nothing specific to WordPress).
Dropbox now offers an App Center to list some third party integrations: https://www.dropbox.com/apps
Dropbox also now offers the Dropbox Embedder, which can be used to embed Dropbox files or folders via Dropbox shared links: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/embedder
