photo sort changed in link sent in email

I copied photos to a Dropbox folder with a sort by date taken.  I renamed each photo and "told" the story.   

 

In Dropbox, everything is fine.  I copied the link to an email and checked it after I sent the email.  The link sort had changed to a sort by name, thus undoing my timeline.

 

How do I get the link sort to remain as it is in Dropbox?

The local folder sorting options are, I'm afraid, exactly that - local to that one computer and device only.

To get them to be different elsewhere you need to rename the files into the order you want (e.g. 001 as the first one, 010 as the tenth etc.)
