Dropbox Extension for Joomla

This is the support thread for the Dropbox Extension for Joomla. The old forum was closed so I'm opening a new thread.

Some general information about the Extension:

It connects your Joomla with your Dropbox account(s)

It can publish files

It can view the pictures in a directory

It can let users upload files to dropbox

can be used as component or as plugin

costs: You have to pay for this component, but you can choose yourself how much. (min 1,80€)

For every Euro you pay, you get a 10 day update-service. This means, pay 3€ and you will be able to download updates for one month, pay 6€ for two month, and so on.

More Information and Reviews can be found on JED:

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

I purchased and installed the dropbox extension for Joomla 3.x and I get this error on every page:
Problems loading language from path: /var/www/htmlDScomponentsDScom_dropboxDS
Also, when I try to view a page that actually uses the extension it is blank white with these errors:

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

I found your extension and thought it would be a solution for my client to share his product data sheets. He has created a dropbox and he can keep the the sheets updated to this - and customers can view and download as required.

Everything went well:

But when I click on a directory I just get a spinning wheel and nothing opens - any ideas?

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

Hi Duncar.
There are multiple versions of jQuery loaded. Can you reduce it to one?
Best only the default that comes with joomla itself.

We've installed the latest alpha version , the files are stored on our FTP server in a folder (Dropbox/joomla/ ) .
Can you please tell me how to configure the Dropbox plugin so that the files are synchronized with the dropbox.The dropbox is listed as connected.

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

Hi Andrea L.
I think you misunderstood the purpose of the extension. It is used for showing files in Joomla that are placed in your dropbox.

Hi Andrea L.

When a file is uploaded via the Dropbox plugin,why isn't it listed in the (connected) dropbox?

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

@Andrea: Yes. When you upload a file via the dropbox extension it should be in Your dropbox in Apps/joomla/<your folder name>

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

Hi!

Downloaded, installed and configured the Dropbox extention. Then im getting the following error:

Strict Standards: Declaration of DropboxController::display() should be compatible with JControllerLegacy::display($cachable = false, $urlparams = Array) in /customers/d/3/4/evenfo.no/httpd.www/components/com_dropbox/controller.php on line 629 Strict Standards: Declaration of DropboxModelDropbox::cleanCache() should be compatible with JModelLegacy::cleanCache($group = NULL, $client_id = 0) in /customers/d/3/4/evenfo.no/httpd.www/components/com_dropbox/models/dropbox.php on line 644 Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /customers/d/3/4/evenfo.no/httpd.www/components/com_dropbox/controller.php on line 116 Deprecated: Non-static method JApplication::getCfg() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context in /customers/d/3/4/evenfo.no/httpd.www/components/com_dropbox/controller.php on line 463 Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /customers/d/3/4/evenfo.no/httpd.www/components/com_dropbox/views/dropbox/view.html.php on line 136

 

Hope that i can get a pointer on how to fix this. Error-reporting is set no "None", but the message still shows. When adding files to the dropbox-folder the files are showing correctly, but i also get multiple spinning wheels that dont dissapear.

Thanx in advance slightly smiling face

Re: Dropbox Extension for Joomla

the "scrict standard" messages are not error messages and they should never be displayed on a productive system.
Please go to System->Global Configuration->Server and set "Error Reporting" to simple or none.
