Pdf Downloading On Miter Saw Website From Dropbox

Pdf Downloading On Miter Saw Website From Dropbox

Hi, I want to give the downloadable pdf file to facility to users. My plan is to upload the documents on dropbox and provide the download link on my website. However, I want that if someone clicks on the download button it directly download the file instead of going onto the dropbox. Is there any way to do it?

Hello @HunterGreig, thanks for posting your question here!

You can force a browser to directly download the contents of a shared link by adding dl=1 at the end of the URL, instead of dl=0.

Could you give that a try and let me know if it does the trick for you?

Cheers!
