Publishing from Dropbox™
Updated July 16, 2019 - A unique feature to edocr is the ability
to host a document outside of edocr cloud storage, yet still
publish it on edocr. How is that useful? We can think of several
1. You just want one copy of the document, not several
copies in various places that could get out of sync in some
2. The document is updated or modified from time to time,
and you don't want to have to repeat the edits in several
3. You want to share your document on a blog or website,
have it stay up-to-date while storing and updating in only
We have talked in the past about publishing from Googledocs,
and the advantages of that, but many people have a single
cloud storage location and want the piece of mind of everything
in one place. edocr thinks this is a sound practice, so we allow
you to place a document in your Dropbox folder, then share
that document with the world via edocr, and with your properly
set up Profile and viewing template, your dropbox document
can enrich your search engine optimization (SEO) and drive
more traffic to your website, or act as a lead gen document
where you gather the contact information of the people visiting
to read the document.
From Dropbox, find the file you wish to publish on edocr, then
right click on the file name, choose "Share Dropbox Link" which
copies the link into the clipboard; then paste that link into the
"enter a URL" space on the "create a share" page.

This blog post is also a Google Doc, so if you see an error
or have a suggestion, we can quickly change it without
breaking the URL! Plenty of helpful tips available in our
collection of blog post documents.
