Shorten Link URLs Not Working

New member | Level 2

Anyone else having any issues with the URL provided from dropbox.com after you click "Shorten Link"?

Here's an example https://db.tt/uaARzBka  -- I'm getting a "Certificate-based authentication failed" error message. 

The URL provided before "Shorten Link" is pressed works fine. 

We've used the "Shorten Link" option for several files that we sent out last week and now none of them are working. =(

I'm getting the same error when I click on your links too. I'll try from a different server to see if it might just be our connection.

I kept bumping into this thread while I was searching for shortened url's for a Dropbox Showcase. In case anyone else like me is looking for that kind of shortened url (to share a Showcase), I finally found it myself. You click Share at the top of your created Showcase. It brings up a dialog box that at the top allows you to put in an email address. At the very bottom of that dialog, it has an option to Edit link. Once you click on that, you can shorten up your showcase name and replace the long unreadable string with a readable string. Just thought I'd post this solution here because I kept bumping into this thread as I was searching for Showcase url shortening. Hope this helps someone.
