How to set up landing pages for uploads

Dropshare optionally creates an HTML landing page for each of your uploads. If you want to enable this feature, open the Preferences and select the Landing page tab.

Select Create landing pages for uploaded files if you want Dropshare to create a landing page for your uploads.

MacOS: In case you want to disable the landing page for a single upload, press and hold the option key (⌥) while dragging a file to Dropshare.
