    Dropbox - How to post link in the forum -New to this stuff


    Hi there
    I'm still fairly new to this stuff -- If I want to make say a document / presentation / spreadsheet available for people to access from my dropbox account if I want to help them with W8 issues or show presentations how do I do it.

    1) From Dropbox presumably I share the folder that I want to be made available
    2) instead of Emailing the link presumably I just get the link of the file and post that into the forum (having ensured that I've enabled the folder for being shareable.

    Is that correct or do I have to do it some other way -- I don't want to have to email 1000's of people !!!!.

    Cheers
