Topic: I have been using Dropbox to keep a SVP 2 gallery fluid

Forgive me if this has been addressed, I have tried the forum search.

We use Website Builder hosted by Networks Solutions. We use SVP 2 galleries to make on-line art exhibits. We need to be adding artwork at any time, so we have used Dropbox's "Public' folders to store our SVP files in. It has worked very well for us.

We received a message from Dropbox that they will be discontinuing their Public folders. Are there instructions on how to use SVP 2 with Dropbox without using the Public folder?

I am a novice, so any help would be appreciated!  Cheryl B.

Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to use Dropbox as a web hosting service.
Images (and other files) can be stored or shared in a Dropbox account but can no longer be accessed directly or used in web pages.
Google Drive have also recently taken similar steps (on 31 August 2016).

As such, you'll need to find a new host for your SimpleViewer galleries and images and the best solution would probably be to use a regular web host (which would allow you to upload your gallery folders and images to some designated web space via FTP).

Please see the Embedding in a Web Template Site support section for details.
