Dropbox plugin for wordpress

New post to go with a new version of the plugin. Click here.

There seems to be a demand for a wordpress plugin which can handle dropbox and there is code available to make it, but for some reason people haven’t made one yet.

Taking the available code and next to no wordpress plugin knowledge I’ve modified the code and made a plugin out of it.

It’s now been what I would consider sufficiently tested, and appears to work for most configurations.

Long story short, a special thanks to jaka.kubje.org and to individual-it.net from where the bulk of the code originates. I just made it a plugin.

There is a readme file in the archive which should explain the workings. It’s basic and simple, but if any questions come up, post a comment and I’ll gladly answer.

010 – Added option to show file size. Added option to show date and time of last modification
009 – Fixed to work with the new dropbox url. Fixed a problem with the permalinks. Added shortcodes
008 – Switched to the new way of storing options. Might be compatible with wordpressMU. Need volunteer to find out.
007 – Security update restricting acces to plugin settings. Please update if you have a multi-user blog.
006 – suffice to say I’m embarrassed about this one but the password should no longer get messed up
005 – files with spaces in the names should no longer be truncated thanks to a delightfully simple fix.
007 – Security update restricting acces to plugin settings. Please update if you have a multi-user blog.
006 – Fixed obvious mistake in password code.
005 – Files with a space in the name now mostly work.
004 – fixed URL bug
003 – updated the dropbox connection class
002 – updated the dropbox connection class

Browser issues as noted so far:

  • Chrome – like a charm
  • Firefox – works
  • IE8 – also woks
  • Safari – works on the latest version
  • Opera – haven’t tested much but seems to work
  • Epiphany – untested

Dropbox plugin for wordpress, 7.1 out of 10 based on 12 ratings
  • http://www.yourappletrainer.com Chris P.

    I’m using Fetch on the Mac. I’ll log in to the cpanel and try there.

  • http://w.ahedirect.com Mark R.

    This plugin is AWESOME! One question, how can we change the list of documents to be sorted with the most recent document first? I know DropBox sorts by file size but we upload a new document each day and want the most recent one to be on top.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      That’s a great idea, I’ll see what I can do about that and several other customisation options in the next release. :D

      The next release should be out sometime in the second half of February. Sorry for the waiting period but it’s the soonest I can get to work on it.

  • jordan

    I’m also getting the error “Error: Cannot create temporary directory!”

    I’ve tried placing a tmp folder in several places but can’t seem to get anywhere. Is there something else that would be preventing it from creating this temp directory?

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

  • http://blog.intubo.com DLabz

    Thanks for the great plugin. I have a suggestion:
    I don’t want my visitors to be able to select folder. I would prefer to only have a select file and upload if I add the upload thingie to a page. Destination should be preset on the admin side, or even better a parameter : [dropboxupload&folder="somefoder"].

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      These are features already planned for the next release which will be later this month. :D

      Thank you for the suggestion though

  • Martin Grether

    thank you for that handy plugin but i am having a problem

    Error: Cannot create temporary directory!

    I tried to upload from the backend.
    “Destination directory” seems to be a dir on my server – right? i have a /tmp with 777 but even if specified i get the same error.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      I think I know the problem. What’s the absolute path to the temp folder?

      • Martin Grether

        thanks for your quick response!
        and sitewise its /tmp

        where should that dir be?

        • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

          Check to see if you have a tmp folder here:


          • Martin Grether

            my domain points to ../bolsgenever/
            there is no tmp in “web39″
            what does the plugin expect?

  • Jessica

    Great plugin, it works perfectly! I am using it with WordPress and while I have tried (and failed) I am attempting to add some more fields to the form, such as name and email, that will send a notification to me when someone uses the form. I have had moderate success manipulating the main file using standard php for a contact form. But it’s not quite getting there, any help would be great.

    // Upload
    $name ='name';
    $email ='email';
    $filetype = 'filetype';
    mail( "jbo@jessicabo.com", "Conversion Upload Form",
    "Name: $name\nEmail: $email\nFiletype: $filetype", "From: $name ");
    $uploader = new DropboxConnection($dbemail, $dbpassword);
    $uploader->upload($tmpFile, $dbdir . "/". $_POST['dest']);

    echo 'File successfully uploaded!';
    } catch(Exception $e) {
    echo 'Error: ' . htmlspecialchars($e->getMessage()) . '';

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Let me see if I understand.

      You want people to be able to give you a name and email when uploading files, and you want to receive a notification containing their data?

      If so I’ll be glad to add it as a feature to the next release (sometime this month) :D

      • Jessica

        Yep that’s exactly what I am looking for! It would be a great feature. Thanks so much!

  • Jeremiah

    Getting an error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected ‘{‘ in /home/content/***/html/wp-content/plugins/dropbox-plugin/tdp_main.php on line 59

    Using WordPress 2.9.1.

    What have I done wrong?

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Not sure, that hasn’t happened before. Do you have the latest version of the plugin?

      Also which version of php is your host running?

      • Jeremiah

        Was still running PHP 4. I updated and it works now. Sorry for the bother.

        • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

          I’m glad you got it running :D

  • Scott


    I modifed your code a bit to include icons next to folders and files (based on extension) and would be glad to provide the code if you’re interested. Just let me know where to send it — you can email me at the address I provided as part of this comment form.

    Thanks for a great plugin!

  • http://www.curtismacdonald.com Curtis

    Hey, thanks so much for this plugin – it is quite needed!

    been playing around with it on my site and I have a few questions/possible feature requests:

    -are there max file size or timeout limits that can be adjusted to accomodate large filesizes?

    -could there be an progress-bar added so that users know the status of their uploads?

    -are there specific file formats that could be allowed/dissallowed?

    it seems that If I try to upload anythink larger than a 500k image, I get the following error:

    “Error: File was not successfully uploaded from your computer.”

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Hello Curtis

      - I’ve just tested the dropbox plugin I have here with a 2MB file and seemed to work, also the limit is set to 32MB; maybe your host has some security restrictions in place which prevent the upload

      -I’ve added the progress bar to the to-do list

      -I’ve also added allowing and disallowing file formats to the to-do list

      Thank you for the suggestions :D

      • http://www.curtismacdonald.com Curtis

        yes, It was the php.ini file in the wrong directory! note to others: php.ini file must be in two places now, the wp-admin folder and the root blog folder to allow php_upload limits above 2MB.

        I look forward to future releases!

  • Nelson

    I don’t know if this feature is planned, but I would like to be able to do something like:

    [dropbox folder=folder1, listonly=True, subfolders=False]


    folder= would allow you to set the folder. This would give us the ability to display different folders on different pages. Of course this would apply to dropboxupload as well.

    listonly= would indicate if the files are downloable. I might want a user to upload to a different folder but not let them download until I validate the file and move it into the download folder.

    subfolders= would dictate if the subfolders are visible.

    Also, you might want to make a security model where it only works when the post/page is created by an admin or other predefined user.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      The folder and subfolders options are already implemented in the test version.

      I’ve added list only to the to do list and I’ll see what I can do about securing it against unwanted users. These are great suggestions :D
      The list of things to add and fix is constantly growing so I think I’ll draw the line at features one of these days and keep the remaining ones for the next update or I’ll never get to upload a new version.

  • Mungo


    If you are working on a localhost and want to get around the SSL problem without messing around with certificates and the like, you can just change the tdp_DropboxConnection.php file, line 208:

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, true);


    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

    Problem gone :-)

    Wicked plugin dude!!! Very much appreciated!!!

    A couple of things I would love to see in this plugin:

    The ability to list the directories and files in the add media pop-up so that individual files could be added to posts by an administrator.

    +1 for the ability to restrict access to user based on groups or roles. This plugin is very simple and if set up right, works a treat for posts, pages and linked files, but alas not for files linked through this Dropbox method… any ideas?


    All the best

  • http://edexpat.com Fraser Smith

    I’d like to second Mungo’s ideas and add to them. I’d like to see (or create) an upload page that would allow authorized users to upload their files to a unique, user specific folder.

    I’d also like to give them the ability to copy files to another user’s folder.

    I guess I’ll need to teach myself some more wp programming skills. ;-)

  • http://www.beatzilla.com Ashley

    Hey Andrew,

    Is there a demo for this plugin that I can view that shows and or tells how it works or how to customize it?

  • Steva

    The plugin is great
    I can see but I can not do file uploads
    While the TDP options can upload files, where is the problem?
    thanks for your invaluable help.
    sorry for my English

  • Fran

    Same problem as others,

    Error: Cannot create temporary directory!

    I’ve created a /tmp folder with cdmod 755 (and verified it works using other app) but still get the error.

    • Maria

      I’m on WordPress MU. Is that the problem? T.T

  • http://www.deelab.org dax

    any way to show dropbox shared files in a page of my blog?

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      You mean files in the public folder?

  • http://www.deelab.org dax

    I mean files in the folder setted up for plugin

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      I just noticed that the test page is also not showing files. I’m looking into it now.

  • http://www.deelab.org dax

    ok, waiting for news

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Seems that Dropbox made some changes to the site(turned off the no-javascript file browser), and that’s causing the plugin to misbehave. I’ll see what I can do, but it might take a while.

  • Stefan

    Hi Andrew,
    anything new with your wordpress plugin? Black B. from the Dropbox forum got it to work with Joomla. See the demo here:
    Dropbox with Joomla
    Dropbox Forum: Joomla Plugin

    He is not able to publish it though, due to a problem with the Dropbox API. See here

    But besides that it works fine. :) So what do you think? Is it possible to convert that plugin so that we can use it with wordpress again?

    Or do you even have tiime to work on it in the near future?


    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Hello Stefan,

      Thanks for letting me know, I’ll try to look into it. Currently I’m trying to see if I can make any progress with the mobile version of the dropbox site.

      Unfortunately my time is currently taken up by other matters and to make things worse my internet connection is very shaky, making long term testing rather hard :(

  • http://engine.searchppts.com Srinivas

    Is it possible to add the plugin upload form to users on my wordpress page/sidebar so users can upload files to my drop box ?

    I know a plugin exists for the same purpose i mentioned but its buggy. Your plugin works fine from admin panel.

    Pls have a look into this feature in your next revision if it doesn’t exist..


    • http://engine.searchppts.com Srinivas

      Updating my own post.. Found it thanks a lot !!!

      Sorry for not reading read me !!!

      • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

        I’m glad it worked out, but to my knowledge the plugin was no longer operational due to recent changes in dropbox. Does the upload still work?

  • http://searchppts.com Srinivas

    the plugin has problems.. uploads not workin consistently ..

    Hoping to edit the buggy part.. But my knowledge on plugin is limites lets see how it goes !!

  • http://www.safeworldtrade.com Jim W

    I put the tag into one of my pages as instructed in the directions and I only get this display: “Viewing: ../”
    I have entered the login and password correctly and have tried multiple iterations of a directory. Do this plugin work with the newest version 3.0? I am trying to do an evaluation of this plugin but I am having a very hard time and find little documentation. Please help.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      That’s due to a change in the dropbox website which I haven’t gotten a chance to fix yet as I’m currently abroad.

      File browsing is currently broken, though uploads might still work.

      I’m sorry for not providing a fix sooner, but if all goes well (as it rarely does unfortunately) I should be able to work on the problem in a couple of weeks.

      • http://www.safeworldtrade.com Jim W


        I think it would be a good idea to list the fact that file browsing is broken somewhere on this site so that others will be aware of it and not spend so much time wondering what they did wrong.

        • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

          Thank you for pointing that out. I had mentioned it on both the demo page and the post itself, but the post seems to have reverted to a previous version.

          The information is now in place.

          • JimW


            Any word on the changes to the plugin?

            • Mike

              Hello All – Was wondering if you had an idea on time frame on this yet.


  • Webby

    I’ve been using Dropbox for a couple of weeks now and love it. I’ve just stumbled upon this exciting plugin to a wordpress blog I’m creating but a little disappointed that you don’t have the time to develop the plugin further. Would some donations from eager Dropbox users like me help you find the time? Thanks.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      I’m sure nobody is as disappointed as I am. I know I’ve said this a couple of times already, but I can’t work on it during September either. While donations would most definitely get me motivated enough to reallocate time, in the long run it’s better that I finish the ominous unstated business which I’m handling at the moment first.

      The plugin is on standby, it is not abandoned and it is not forgotten. I will get it to work! :D

  • D4W33D

    That was a great job.
    Thanks a lot to take time to improve your plugin soon.
    I am excited to see this plugin work.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      Sorry, are you saying it’s working now?

  • D4W33D

    Unfortunatly not, but it was just encouragement to continue your great work.

  • Jim W

    It’s been 3 months since this plugin hasn’t worked. It is possible that you have more important work to do but it is not fair to list this plugin on wordpress if you have no sense of urgency to repairing it.

  • http://bestphosphates.wordpress.com Lou Naccarato

    Really great, practicly explained and useful tips.

  • Jeff

    Looking forward to see this up and running again. Perhaps dropbox should hire you to do some of their own internal development! – it amazes me that they haven’t thrown any resources at this request. You’ve got quite a following now.. hopefully you can get some time to do this soon. Cheers.

  • http://www.whatsonthebox.net uk tv abroad

    Is this plug in compatible with WordPress latest version 3.0.1 ?
    as i see from the download page it says Compatible up to: 2.7.1

    i setup on my site but it’s not working …….

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      It should work with newer versions of wordpress also, but the problem is that it isn’t working at all.

      I’ve resumed working on it with promising results, but I’ll refrain from giving an ETA until it’s done.

  • Dan

    This is exactly what I am looking for, it looks great.

    Do you have any idea when the new release will be available?

    Thanks for your hard work.

    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      ‘Soon’ is the best answer I can give. How soon? When it’s done.

      Not the best answers in the world I know, but it’s the best I can give at the moment.

      • Dan

        No worries, thanks for the reply.

  • Lewis


    I’m just interested is using this plugin for uploading to my dropbox, I dont want people to see my files. From testing the plugin it sems to work great, I just have 2 questions:
    1) When I use the shortcode for the uploader at the bottom of a page the plugin appears at the top – how can I fix this?
    2) Can I get rid of the Destination directory? I dont want people to be able to use that.


    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      The issue with 1 I can’t really explain, must be a bug of sorts

      2 I’ll Include the option in the next release which is basically a rewrite of the plugin

      All I can say for the moment is that the new code does indeed work, I just need to make it user-friendly enough to be a plugin.

      I have no time frame for that, since whenever I try to estimate something comes up.

  • http://www.danielgorges.de Daniel

    Hi Guys,

    thanks for this great Plugin. I´ve searched for such a plugin for a while.
    But I have problems uploading a file to my dropbox account. When I try to upload a file (gif file 5KB) I get an error:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 58177 bytes) in /home2/…/wp-content/plugins/dropbox-plugin/tdp_DropboxConnection.php on line 231
    But where is the problem?

    I also have an idea for another feature:
    Is there a possibility to a an ID for every file that I am uploading? So that I can add a single link for a file and not only a complete folder?

    Thanks again for this plugin.

  • http://adjenz.com Aaron

    Any update on the progress?

    I’ve been messing with this…

    I have stripped it to my liking, but I can’t seem to get it outside of the photo’s directory.

    Can’t wait for you to update this plugin! It will be huge.

  • John Ryan

    Will you be releasing the plugin next week ?


    John Ryan

  • John Ryan

    Before you release the plugin during the next week, you should also consider the following zip file :


    It contains TWITTER-like scripts and css files.
    A text cloud hovers over every field. It looks smart.

    Hi, I have tried to implement “The Dropbox Plugin” in my website at http://www.findmanna.eu/extranet – but can’t seem to get any files shown… I am running wordpress 3.1.1 selfhosted…

    Can anyone help me out?

    And if anyone has an idea as to how I could make different pages (accessed via permissions) which results in different listings from dropbox / different folders within my dropbox I would be happy! :)


    • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

      A new version of the plugin is up and running, let me know if it gives you any problems

      • http://www.findMANNA.eu Jesper Friis

        thanx – we’re one step closer – but now I am getting this:

        “if you see this you were probably not playing nice, if you were, this error comes from the dropbox plugin”

        - whenever I am clicking on a file shown on my site via the plugin?

        kr Jesper

        • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

          fixed and uploaded, the new version is 0.101, it may take a few minutes until wordpress.org displays it

          to double check, were you were attempting to download a file from the chosen root, or did you navigate folders and then attempted a download?

          • http://www.findMANNA.eu Jesper Friis

            I tried both – with same result… also I found that displaying folders only resulted in the folder icon – not being able to open it…

            Ill try with the new one – and get back to you :)

            and thanks!!! :)

            • http://www.findMANNA.eu Jesper Friis

              your fixed worked – only I have another issue now… I tested with a subfolder – and when clicking that link I get:

              Kr JEsper

              • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

                wow, that looks nasty
                did the subfolder/file name have any special characters in the name? was the file you were trying to download very large? did the subfolder have many files in it?

                the date is displayed twice as a test, you can add this parameter to the shortcode
                it will display in order: the Icon, Name, Size and Date

                also could we move the discussion here? http://software.o-o.ro/the-dropbox-plugin-working-version/

  • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

    For those checking the comment feeds, a new sneak preview of the newly functional plugin is up. The release date is soon, but a lot sooner than before. When that happens, I’ll lock the comments here and switch to a new page.

    Thank you for being patient. :D

    sorted the issue by typing logs manually into tdp_dropboxconnection.php (line196)
    great work anyway!

    Is there anyway to ask for some meta data or email address? This way once the file is uploaded, you can figure out what to do with it or who gave it to you?

    You could store the data as a text file with the same name.

      Not at the moment, will definitely add it as soon as I get a chance though, it’s a great idea.

    i would donate if this thing actually worked… ? the joomla one works fine but this one seems to be broken.

    • http://broken??? shane

      … also the o-o thing down the bottom is annoying as well. i’ll give you $5 donation if it works with no link. :) keep up the good work, btw

      • http://software.o-o.ro Andrew

        The good news is that I’ve updated the plugin and it should work now.

        More good news is that you can disable the o-o from the settings page.

        As far as I know there are no bad news at the moment, which might be considered good news by some

    Hi Andrew – and thanks for the great plugin – I have one isssue though – I get errors whenever I try to upload to Dropbox….

    I added the shortcode [dropbox] to a page.  When I do all other content disappears, and nothing is added.  So, it is just a blank page.

    Are there certain parameters that must be defined in the shortcode before this works?

    • Andrew

      No, it should work perfectly with just the shortcode. Maybe there’s a compatibility issue with another plugin. Try turning them off and on one at a time. If you find the issue please do let me know.
