For people who are not regisered with Dropbox, what do you see here?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2vbelaof5pp64nb/ESM_dcdc.jpg?dl=0

Is it an OK no-hassle image?

The idiots are soon breaking all the existing public file links.

OK, I'll have to post "dropbox links" instead of "public dropbox
links".

Idiots.

Can't you just assign a page of your own website for show 'n' tell?

I use Dropbox privately to let me work from multiple sites; my active
project files go into Dropbox folders, and then they magically appear
on multiple PCs. It's all drag-and-drop.

It is/was easy to also have a public folder within my overall
D:\Dropbox  folder, to post public images. They are sort of wrecking
that now, or at least trashing  my old links and making me create new
ones.

Our ISP/web hoster is not great... we need a new one eventually. And
The Brat wouldn't like me messing with her company web site.

I just switched to Inmotion. I haven't gotten used to this WordPress  
stuff yet. Eventually I'll have to but so far I find the way it  
"organizes" (or rather, doesn't organize) files a mess. But one can use  
other software if desired.

It would just be a simple FTP area that doesn't affect the rest of the  
site. She could even call it "Dad's sandbox" or something.

If at some point you want to write stuff there as well (I plan to) then  
WordPress might be the way to go. There are way to improve its messy  
file repository. Usually writing privileges can be restricted to certain  
areas so you can't accidentally delete some of her stuff.

That's effectively what I do... you can access a specific filename
that I've posted a link to, but, if you try to access the directory
itself, you get...

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /SED/ on this server.

I also have up/down-load FTP capability for my customers where I
assign them a username and password.

(I maintain the site myself, it's rather a trivial operation ;-)

What about the hundreds or thousands of old links you have already posted?

You don't have time to go back and change all those links. Is there  
anything we can do to modify the link to gain access to the old files?

2819 files in my Public folder.

All those links will be broken soon. I could create new ones on
request. Or make the entire structure publically available as Joerg
suggests.

I use private Github projects for that, or else git repositories on network-accessible NAS boxes.

 Imagine a folder in your collection of Dropbox folders,
 you can grab and post a link to the folder, instead of  
 just to individual files.  Whenever you add something
 new to the folder, it's visible along with the rest.
 I think you can have and create nested folders in there,
 as well, to guide people to specific things.  E.g.,
 I have a folder, s.e.d, and it has lots of subfolders.

How do I do that?  

Since I'm a Dropbox user, I don't see what other people see.

Like that gets the image with a (useless) dropbox frame around it. sometimes the
frame has pop-ups from dropbox.
