How to change a Dropbox link to a public URL?

Hey Champs! Sometimes when we’re scheduling posts through the Bulk Upload CSV files our images don’t show up. That’s because Social Champ requires your Image URLs to be Public URLs which allows our servers to fetch the images for your posts.

There is a simple way to create public URLs for your Images through Dropbox. Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how!

  1. Sign in to your Dropbox account and click on the upload button to upload your file.
  2. Once uploaded, hover your cursor on top of the image and then click the Share button.
  3. Then click the Create link button. Once the link is created click the Copy link button.
  4. Paste the URL anywhere and change the dl=0 at the end of the link to raw=1.

     

     

  5. Then you can paste the update link to your Bulk Upload CSV file.
  6. Upload your CSV file, finalize your settings and confirm your posts.
  7. Now, you will be able to see your posts with the Images attached and ready to be published!

 

Great job! Now you know how to create a public URL using your Dropbox!
