Change Default Location where Dropbox gets files

Can I change the default location where Dropbox gets files?


We have a PDF folder that has been in use for years. We might like to keep all PDFs there and have Dropbox point to that folder.

You could do that by editing the code in helpers/Dropboxfunctions.phpto change

function dropbox_get_files_dir_path()
    return DROPBOX_DIR . '/files';

so that it returns whatever the path is to your PDF folder.

Another, perhaps simpler, approach would be to just make a symlink on the server to where the PDFs are.

Thanks, Patrick! I'll file these suggestions away for possible use in the future. For now, I have decide not to make this change. I did not understand that the folder I cited was a temporary holding area. I'll leave it as is for now.
