Warning: Dropbox has changed

Post by enric » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:19 am

Dropbox has changed the way the file/link sharing works.
Trying to download a user scenario by the current system gives an error.
Right now I do not found a way to solve it, probably Pip should give us light.

IIRC it has always needed the ?d=1 or somesuch on the link, otherwise it is trying to download the landing page for the file download.

Cheers

As some people is having trouble with this, I post the way I found it works now;
(see also http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 82#p654284 )


- Download CPF file to dropbox
- Copy Dropbox link

Paste this link in the LST file. Notice that the link finishes by 0, change this last character from 0 to 1
Like:
#URL https://www.dropbox.com/s/lxtfsqf3s7pai ... 2.CPF?dl=1

- Download LST file to Dropbox
- Copy Dropbox link (that of the LST file)

Then paste this link to anywhere you may change it
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4w9ktwpadnpdw ... 2.lst?dl=0
- change last character from 0 to 1
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4w9ktwpadnpdw ... 2.lst?dl=1

then copy and share the modified link.

The procedure indicated is for creating a new scenario and share it.

Old lst files and links are down. Dropbox has changed the whole link to old files.
The owner who posted the scenario needs to change the links.
