Dropbox Features

In a dropbox public folder right click on a file, select dropbox, select "copy public link".

If I edit this image in the Dropbox folder on my computer, this image is automatically updated.

Please note: New Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 no longer have a Public folder. Don't worry! Every account created prior to this date will still have a Public folder. If you would like to enable a Public folder on a new account, see the instructions HERE. Scroll down to Creating a Public folder.
Dropbox has disabled my public links.
Apparently there was too much bandwidth for their service. Maybe a paid version would help.
It's too bad we can't use Google Drive in this way.
My public links have been restored. We will see how long it lasts.

<<I searched Google for online calculator code.
I made an html page for it and hosted it in a public DropBox folder and embedded it into the page using an iframe gadget.






















<<This html file is stored in a public DropBox folder.

Get the public URL of the file (right click on a file, select dropbox, select "copy public link") and insert the following into the html where you want the page to be inserted:

<iframe src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14060412/Test001.html"> </iframe>

NOTE: You may have to change the "https" to "http".

If I edit this HTML file in the Dropbox folder on my computer, it is automatically updated on the site.

I got the weather code from Weather.com, made a web page containing that code.

I saved the page in a public DropBox folder, got the Public URL,
changed the https to http and inserted it into an iFrame gadget.
