Have you heard of Dropbox? At Jimdo, we like it a lot. It’s one of the easiest ways to share files with friends and coworkers without cluttering up your inboxes with files. Dropbox is online—and if you connect your computer to Dropbox, you’ll have your files in a folder there, too. To share documents, all you have to do is create a folder and invite everyone by email who you want to allow access to it. And now, together with Jimdo, uploading images and other files will be blindingly fast!
Dropbox and Jimdo: uploading has never been easier or quicker!
How’s that for teamwork? As you saw in the video, thanks to the new Dropbox function, you can add new content to your site in the blink of an eye—and you can do it from anywhere!
A few examples:
- No more long uploads from your computer: your pictures and files go directly from Dropbox to your Jimdo website. The direct connection between the servers makes it super speedy.
- What if you’re in another country (or just traveling in another city) without your computer? Well, you can still work on your Jimdo website! Just save everything you’ll need in Dropbox, and you can access it from anywhere you have an internet connection.
- Say you’re working on a Jimdo website with people spread out in different cities or countries. No problem! Just save your files in a shared Dropbox folder, then upload them from there. No need to email 20 versions of the files back and forth.
- Even faster with Dropbox and Jimdo: If you’re out taking pictures with your phone camera, save them to Dropbox—and your friends at home can upload them directly to the website!
We’re really excited to share this feature with you, making it easier to edit your website whether you have your personal computer or not, and whether you’re working alone or with a group! You can learn even more about Dropbox in our Dropbox Tips and Tricks post.
How to Get Started
To use the new function, you’ll need to link your Dropbox account with your Jimdo website. If you don’t have a Dropbox account, you can sign up for free.
The next time you want to upload pictures, click on the “Dropbox” button. You’ll be taken automatically into your Jimdo website settings.
Confirm that you want to use Dropbox with your Jimdo website and log into Dropbox.
Now your Dropbox and Jimdo website are working together! You can browse through the files in your Dropbox and place them directly on your website—no need to upload from your computer anymore! For more on using Dropbox, visit our Support Center.
