Hi, I've implemented on PHP with the Dropbox API the https://blogs.dropbox.com/developers/2015/08/new-api-endpoint-shared-link-metadata/

I'm using the Chooser to select files (preview link, not direct link). Then, on frontend site, when I click on the selected file, I take preview link and I make a request for obtain the metadata for that file..  but I obtain

HTTP status 400 {"error": {"link": "That is not a valid URL"}}

if the link has spaces inside. Can you help me please?

Thank you!
