Sending a downloadlink....

Sending a downloadlink....

ross D.1

I am trying to give a pdf file to a friend.

 

The Rule says everybody that has the link, can download. My frienbd writes, that he asked to sigb up to dropbox, which is something completely different.

 

Is he correct?

 

 

Thanks RD

If it requires him to download and sign in then the link has either been sent with sharing capabilities or locked to specific accounts.

You need to follow www.dropbox.com/help/167 for read only, download access

He is being given an advert/request to join. He just needs to click on the cross and proceed as usual.

THERE IS NO X

 

The page does not recommend to sign up, it requires to sign up.

Is there no way to share data so that someone who is given a download-link can download files without registering?

No,

Its confusing to the clients, and I do not want to write a email explaining the tricks of downloading my images...

I appreciate that you are selling your service, and respect that up to a point.

 

That point is when it aggravates my client, or they just dont get it...and walk away all together...

When that happens I have to use a different service...

 

Please somebody tell me how get it where I send my client a link and he clicks and the images pop up..or download starts.. or something simple...that does not require the client. 

or 

Just make user friendly
