Dropr - Dropbox Plugin for WordPress

Dropr - Dropbox Plugin for WordPress

The Dropbox WordPress Plugin – Dropr lets you access files from your Dropbox account and help you to add them straight to your WordPress website. Securely and safely.

How Dropr Works

Dropr essentially turns your Dropbox account into a secondary WordPress Media Library. You can access your Dropbox files from the WordPress text editor screen, then drop files into your content as you please ? without ever having to upload them to WordPress.

This makes it a great way to save bandwidth, plus Dropbox offers better file management than WordPress.

What makes Dropr stands out is the way it handles different type of files. If you choose an image, video or audio file, your will get a friendly interface to add it into content editor just like WordPress’ default Media Library. If you choose a document Dropr will ask you if you want to embed it to your website using Google Docs Viewer. Dropr also comes with a Download Button customizer for the files you want to put out for free downloads
