Dropbox tips & tricks
Learn how to get the most out of Dropbox with other users like you.
Pro tip! Try and include a brand logo or try and for your shared link!
Pro-tip: Downloading the HTML in this way will save whatever is visible, so opening your Showcase while logged in with a different Dropbox account or in will avoid having the edit options show up in the file you create.
Pro tip! The HTML file will still reference your files hosted on Dropbox, but the links will stop functioning.
This is a technical, difficult and unsatisfactory workaround for the novice techie like myself..
Given that showcases are disappearing unexpectedly, can you please provide a way for us to download a complete copy of a showcase, including formatting, text and images so our hard work will not be entirely lost?
Thanks very much!
The HTML file produced by SingleFile LOOKS okay, but none of the text saved can be copied and pasted. This is crucial for rebuilding the content someplace else.
I have 62 Showcases to backup before the service is terminated. It will take days to rebuild and I just have no idea how I am going to make it in time.
May I PLEASE request dropbox enable an easy download option for the COMPLETE contents of the existing showcases you are planning to delete. Saving the images as described above is one thing, but the included formatting and associated word content is essential to their usefulness for us. I feel like these showcases are a creation of ours that is being taken away with no option to keep - it doesn't seem right?
Perhaps I am missing something?
Thanks very much.
You are not. They seem oblivious to the fact that this is a serious challenge to some of their users. I have created 60+ showcases with photographic short stories since I discovered the feature. Those do not represent content, they ARE the content.
As I've stated before I get why they want to get rid of that feature. But I can't rely on them if they start drop services like Google does.
The proper way to do it would be to offer tools for migrating the content to other platforms. The least I expect is to offer a download option so I can rebuild without working against the clock.
Hi there- I had planned to take care of this download from Showcase later today --well in advance of the Showcase retirement on Januarya 1, 2021 but today I go in and I can't find any Showcases. Was everything retired early? Could you direct me to my showcase links? Thanks!
Thank you! To recap for anyone reading: The left side navigation with the Showcases has disappeared. Now the only way to navigate to Apps (the 9 boxes in the right hand corner) and click "Showcase". Presumably this will only be available until January 2021 retirement.
