Link your public Dropbox folder to your site

I’ve always got some stuf in my public Dropbox folder I want to share with friends but I don’t want to send out emails with the link to those files.
I thought it would be easier to have link a folder on my webserver to this public Dropbox folder. This is how I did it:

– get your public dropbox folder name; should be something like this:
– replace the xxxxxxx with what you see in your dropbox
– create a folder on your webserver, like /dl
– create a .htaccess on your folder with this info:
Redirect 301 /dl

That’s it! It’s a ‘file not found’ redirect towards your Dropbox.
