If you use Dropbox Basic (free) to share your plugins, you need to check your links ASAP and re-share if needed...

Important changes to the Dropbox public folder

Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 won't have a Public folder. If you'd like to quickly share files you can use a shared link. Shared links work even if the person you're sharing with doesn't have a Dropbox account.

Dropbox Basic (free) users

As of March 15, 2017 the Public folder in your Dropbox account has been converted into a standard folder. By default this folder is private to your account. This transition will occur automatically.

Here's what you need to know:

  • All of the files in your Public folder will remain safe, but public links to those files will stop working
  • If someone visits a link to a file in your Public folder, they'll see an error page
  • To see a list of your public links, visit the Public folder—any file in this folder will have previously had a public link associated with it
  • Dropbox can't convert existing public links into Dropbox shared links
  • If you'd like to re-share any of the files in your Public folder, please use a shared folder or shared link

I assume you are referring to all those unofficial, 3rd-party, distributions of plugins that are found all over the internet.

If that is the case, then this is good news.

 

Get your plugins from the official source: here on the forum.

If changes at Dropbox effected some of those, then this is good news.

No, I mean the links that the content creators who're using drop box, have posted on this here forum.
