Dropbox changing public folder to private
« on: March 10, 2017, 01:44:08 PM »
This means all previously linked images in public folders will now be dead.  I'm pretty sure most of my content on this site is from my public folder.
Feel free to pm if you're reading content and need the image links updated in my posts, and I'll find the time to do so.

Maybe it's a good idea to scan the forum for such links (using a script) and re-host them locally.

Hmm, most image hosting sites will allow uploads via url (one link per line).

There's probably already a script out there somewhere that just needs minor tweaking to suit particular circumstances.

All my dropbox links were replaced; if you find any broken link or image, please let me know (here).

Other links can be found by searching (with the forum search box, starting from forum home page) for:

Code: [Select]
34113196 - the number from your public links, unique to your user ID
dropboxusercontent.com/u/ - new-style links
dropbox.com/u/ - old-style links (can be both http and https)

If you have made forum contributions (in particular, but not limited to, images linked from a Dropbox public forum), and editing your own messages with updated links is not practical (for any reason), please send me an archive of those files you have linked here, keeping the directory structure, and I'll re-host them on the server.

Can you please run that with this option g3gg0?

Code: [Select]
dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/
I think you'll find a few more results.  :P :)


Other links can be found by searching (with the forum search box, starting from forum home page) for:

85 results here.  Sigh. 

edit:  Oh, I nearly missed your offer to rehost.  Any data limits on your side?  I expect 100's of MB of data here.
There's also likely to be some duplicates like vram*.***, these will need my manual intervention I guess.

edit:  Ummm, one of my medium folders is at 350MB and still downloading.  So I guess I'll have well over 1TB. :o

If I share the folders, can you automagically rehost the images directly from dropbox?  Else I'll strip the CR2/DNG/RAW since these would have only been needed for testing I guess, which should reduce the size significantly.

I should have some time in the coming week to catch up on some stuff.  Is there any progress on automation of updating these image links?

As long as they follow the same directory structure, on a different host, I can do a find/replace easily.
