Hi, how can I come back to an older version of the plugin?

Feel free to send a support ticket and I will try to help you out!

Please note that older versions aren’t supported. So if there is a particular reason why you want to use and old version, just let me know and perhaps I will be able to find an alternative solution.

Is the Gravity PDF > Dropbox connection still supported? It stopped working on my website.

Gravity Forms: Version 2.4.18.7; Gravity PDF: Version 5.2.2; WP Cloud Plugin Out-of-the-Box (Dropbox): Version 1.16.10; Wordpress: Version 5.4.2

Thanks for your fast reply

Thanks! I can indeed reproduce the issue and I will make sure that it is fixed in the next version.

You can already solve it by downloading this file, unpack it and upload it to the /wp-contents/plugins/out-of-the-box/includes/ folder.

I hope that helps! If the problem somehow persists, please create a support ticket and I will have a closer look at it.

Thanks! I replaced the file and connection started working.

is it possible to make it video download prohibited? If possible then I will buy this plugin. Thanks.

If you use the Video Player of the plugin, the plugin will stream the video directly to the user and the user will not see any download options.

However, more advanced users can capture the short lived stream url by monitoring the network traffic. But as with all videos, that isn’t something that can be prevented as the user in the end needs to see the video.

I hope that answers your question!

Floris, it seems that there are a few issues with long file names display in mobile mode (portrait) , also in side mode with the preview that appears outside of the view, quite difficult to use the breadcrumbs when using a sub sub folder … But I like the new options and design :-) I will send you screenshots Thanks

That is fine, could you send me the details via a support ticket? I will have a look at that as well!

Thanks, and I sent you a ticket :-)

I have a Listing website with different members.

I want to use this plugin to create a gallery for each on their own Members page.

1> Can I achieve that with this plugin?

2>1 Can the Gallery show in a popup lightbox?

Thanks for your questions!

  1. Yes, you can use the plugin to generate galleries base on files stored in Dropbox. It don’t think that you can use the ‘Private Folders’ feature for your situation, as the gallery of each member probably needs to be public for everyone. So that will mean that you have to create a gallery shortcode for every member, or add some additional code where the folder location of the gallery is set dynamically
  2. I am not sure what you mean with ‘Gallery Show’. The gallery it self can only be showed inline on your WordPress site, and a the individual images in this Gallery can be displayed in a Lightbox which does have a slideshow functionality. You can see this in action on the demo site.

I hope this information helps you out!

- Floris

Sorry I should have added this.

Can each Gallery on each page be pulled from their own dropbox account?

You prob have it set for one dropbox account in settings per website and never intended it being used this way?

No way could I create enough space on one Dropbox account if they start uploading videos and images knowing the number of Members I intend having

Indeed, the plugin only be linked to specific Dropbox accounts by the administrator user. It isn’t designed to work the other way around, so user can’t be linked to their own Dropbox. Although it would be technically possible to link to accounts of your users, there are no plans to add the functionality due to security reasons. Most important is that your WordPress installation would need permanent access to the Dropbox of all the users to use their content on a website. That is something you just don’t want.

I hope this answers your question!

Last Update destroyed working plug in, (the purple update) ruins the plug in interface, how can we disable auto upgrade without disconnect license ? , last update caused problems, does not upload anything and big upload box was changed for a small filed without any progress bar or anything very very bad and disappointed, had to look for the old one in a server backup , really a lot of work

Hi there, I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with the update! The update replaced some very outdated javascript libraries, improved the integration with various WordPress plugins and added some new features that were requested. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to test all WordPress environments, but I haven’t received any bugs reports so far and the upload box still should contain progress data:

upload

So if you want me to take a closer look at your site, feel free to extend your support package and create a support ticket via the link below. I will gladly help you out!

The plugin itself doesn’t auto update, as that is handled by WordPress itself. If you want to disable the auto updater of WordPress, please take a look at this article: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-disable-automatic-updates-in-wordpress/ And for the future, you can always ask me to send a previous version of the plugin via a support ticket (no need for a support package in that case) and I will send it to you.

I am sorry for the inconvenience!

Thank you for your answer, as you seen in the screenshot you shared there is no more the big + sign and the big white box customers love to see and find easy (the old ones in front) now customers are complaining about where the upload form is until I have to tell them is a smaller version now with that small plus sing, most are reporting it open the upload box, they choose the file and nothing happen, it does not show the upload process or anything, I am using blaszok theme and I had to install the previous version to avoid this, i hope you can help

Thanks for your feedback!

There are basically four ways how users can add files to the Upload Box:

  • Use the plus sign to select the files/folders on your device
  • Press the text: ‘Add your files’ or ‘Or select a folder’
  • Select anywhere in the Upload Box
  • Drag & Drop your files directly in the Upload Box

If that isn’t sufficient for your use case, perhaps you can add some custom CSS to make the upload button itself more visual. For example:


#OutoftheBox .fileupload-add-button:after {content: "Select Files";}

#OutoftheBox .fileupload-add-button {
    width: auto;
    border-radius: 30px;
    padding: 0 15px;
    font-weight: bold;
}

#OutoftheBox .fileupload-add-button i {
    display: none;
}

upload

Perhaps that helps for your situation?

I am not sure why the upload process isn’t showing in your site. As shown in the screenshot of the previous reply, this information is present in the plugin. If you want me to take a closer look at this on your site, feel free to renew your support package and create a support ticket via the link below. I will do my best to help you out!

I FIX IT WITH CSS..

Hi, thanks for making this fantastic plugin. I have one question. I use this plugin primarily on my client website. It’s a Real Estate company for gallery photos of the properties. The issue that I have is I can’t find the option to disable download pictures. My client doesn’t like the idea that competitors can download and used for their benefit

Thanks for your question! You should be able to disable the download option on the ‘User Permissions’ tab in the Shortcode Builder:

I hope that helps you out!

- Floris

thanks!

Hi, how can I come back to an older version of the plugin? Purple update destroyed all and nothing work now, even with your suggestions everything is not working and the new interface is so minimal than people can’t find the upload button, videos do not play anymore and only show a prohibitive symbol, very disappointed :(

I am sorry to hear that! Feel free to create a support ticket and I can send you an older version of the plugin.

Hi,

Is it possible to allow certain Wordpress UserRoles permission for subfolders only?

For example, a userRole can only view certain Sub-folders?

Thanks in advance. Michael.

Hi Floris,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Lastly, I guess I would need to create a Wordpress page also specific to that subfolder (with that permission set in the shortcode).

So, I would need to define the Folder/Subfolder setup in Dropbox as a Wordpress Menu with permissions for each page (representing a subfolder)

Would this be the way to go about it?

Thanks in advance.

Michael.

You can add as many shortcodes on the same page as you want, so you don’t necessarily need to create separate pages for it. But that depends on your use case of course. In the shortcodes itself, you can select which User Roles should be able to see/use the plugin.

Does that more or less answer your question?

In Media Player . Default Skin if you use idm extension (Internet download manager addon) the player is not working.. please check this..

It might well be possible that browser extensions like IDM interfere with the streams of Out-of-the-Box. However, as IDM (and several other extensions) change the default behavior of your browser, there are no plans to support those extensions.

tnx. just to let you know in Legacy jPlayer all works good..

hello, does this integrate with woocommerce orders, so each order has its own Dropbox upload ability, thanks

Yes! The plugin has its upload functionality integrated in to WooCommerce, which you can use to let your users attach documents to their orders after purchase. The documents are stored on Dropbox in an order specific folder. For more information, check the online documentation.
