I've created a Dropbox folder, with a .png and .html in it. Obtained these links via "Share link": png, html However, they don't open directly. Only through Dropbox logo or download. What's wrong?

Also tried the old way through "Public folder" (which is now deprecated but could be created anyway). In this case png opens directly and html doesn't open at all (links below, in my comment).

Could anyone explain how do I publish an html for direct access?

[dl.dropbox.com/u/136524671/Puscha.png] and [dl.dropbox.com/u/136524671/index.html] - links for the 2nd method, with "Public folder" –  Alexander Shmuratko Jan 17 '13 at 12:14

Just now found the answer - simply replace "www" with "dl" in a link. Pity that I couldn't find the answewr at Dropbox's site, though it turned out to be there! –  Alexander Shmuratko Jan 17 '13 at 12:30

Would you mind posting your answer as an answer, and after a couple of days accepting it? (So it is more apparent to others.) –  pnuts Jan 17 '13 at 12:45

Sure, I couldn't do it right then because of the limitations. –  Alexander Shmuratko Jan 17 '13 at 17:11
    
My bad, apologies. I should not have said anything for at least a couple of days (or at all?!) (My excuse is that by then many OPs have disappeared for good.) Incidentally, my +1 is offsetting a downvote. –  pnuts Jan 17 '13 at 17:22
