I used to be able to copy a link, then replace "?dl=0" (or whatever) with "?raw=1" and the link would work on web forums such as vbulletin.  I tried it today and it no longer works, even though links I previously posted on the exact same forum still do.  Did something change with respect to default permissions or something?  The link works for me in a standalone browser tab, but not in the forum itself.

The link worked in various browsers and even on another forum I tested on.  It turns out the forum in question was blocking due to image size.  When I made it smaller, it started to work.  The problem is solved.

Hey @Charles M.33, thanks for posting on the Dropbox Community. 

 

You can use raw=1 as a query parameter in your URL to directly render your files on your browser. 

 

Having said that, could you let me know if:

  • The link works on another browser?
  • You've tried navigating to it from an incognito window? 
  • The file type that the shared link tries to render?

Keep me posted!
