I have several links to PDFs from my dropbox that I list in a webpage. I want people that clink on it to see the file in a new tab, out of the Dropbox web interface. For that, I changed the link from dl=0 to raw=1, and that works fine in computers for any browser.
The thing is that, if clicking the links from a mobile/tablet (where the Dropbox App is installed), the link directs to the App. Is it possible to "block" it, such that the link always opens in the browser, no matter if the recipient opens it from a mobile/computer browser?
These links are directed to students who, once upon seeing the prompt to (not)open on the app, give up doing so as they do not want to load things into their dropbox. I know that if the user chooses not to open in the app, the file is open in the browser, but only the prompt is making the students already give up.
an example of one of the links: https://www.dropbox.com/s/e5uveq571tshtr8/ENG_pset1.pdf?raw=1
Thanks in advance.
Hello @brunoconteleite, thanks for reaching out to us!
When users open the shared link from their mobile devices, there should be an option at the bottom of the prompt that says Continue to website.
Let me know if you don't see it or if you have any other questions. Thanks!
Hi Lusil, thanks for reaching back. There is indeed a prompt -- my interest would be to know whether it is actually possible to avoid it so that the link will Continue to website by the standard, with no prompt. Do you think it is possible?
Although there isn't a way to put it as a default to always continue to the website, your feedback is much appreciated.
If there's anything else I can help with or you have any other comments for us, just give us a shout.
In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend ahead, @brunoconteleite!
