Dropbox-CDN Uses Your Dropbox Account As Free CDN

dropbox-cdnI am sure you have heard of Dropbox – the web storage service that allows you to access your files from almost everywhere. If you are a WordPress user as well as a Dropbox user, you can now host (some of) your theme files in Dropbox and save some bandwidth.

A new plugin known as Dropbox-CDN helps you automate the process. All you need to do is go to your Dropbox’s Public folder, create several level of folders with the same folder structures as your WordPress server (for example: /wp-content/themes/your-theme-folder/) and place all your js, css and image files into it. Copy and paste your Dropbox public link to the Dropbox-CDN options page and it will do the rest for you.

Note: This plugin only supports themes who use the filters ‘template_directory‘, ‘template_directory_uri‘, ‘stylesheet_directory‘, and ‘stylesheet_directory_uri‘ to determine the paths to the theme’s template and stylesheet files.
