+              <p>The Dropbox Repository Connection type allows you to index content
from <a href="">Dropbox</a>.</p>
+              <p>Each Dropbox Connection manages access to a single dropbox repository.
This means that if you have multiple dropbox repositories (i.e. different users),
+                you need to create a specific connection for each dropbox repository and
provide the associated authentication information.</p>
+              <br/>
+              <p>A Dropbox connection has the following configuration parameters on
the repository connection editing screen:</p>

alt="Dropbox Repository Connection, configuration parameters" width="80%"/>
+              <br/><br/>
+              <p>As we can see there are 4 pieces of information which are needed to
create a succesful connection. The application key and secret are given by dropbox 
+                when you register your application for a development license. This is typically
done through the application developer <a href="">Dropbox
+              <br/><br/>
+              <figure src="images/en_US/dropbox-repository-create-application.PNG" alt="Dropbox
create application" width="80%"/>
+              <br/><br/>
+              <p>For our purposes, we need to select "Core" as the application type
as we'll be using REST services to communicate with dropbox. Also we select
+                "full access". This merits a small discussion. Typically an application which
wants to store and retreive information does so from an application specific
+                folder. In this case, we assume that the user wants to have access to their
files as is, and not copy them into a manifoldcf specific folder. As a result,
+                we have selected full access instead of "App folder".</p>

alt="Dropbox get key and secret passwords" width="80%"/>
+              <br/><br/>
+              <p> Afterwards we can see the app key and app secret which are the two
pieces of information requested by the connector.</p>
+              <p>Now each user must confirm their acceptance of allowing your application
to access their dropbox. This is done through a run-of-the-mill OAUTH
+                approach. After providing your application key and secret, the user is directed
to a dropbox website asking them if they wish to grant permission to your
+                application. After they accept the request, dropbox provides a client key
and secret. These are the last two pieces of information needed for the dropbox
+                connector. This process is covered in depth at the <a href="">dropbox
+                which shows examples of how to generate the two needed client tokens. </p>

+              <p>After you click the "Save" button, you will see a connection summary
screen, which might look something like this:</p>

alt="Dropbox Repository Connection, saving configuration" width="80%"/>
+              <br/><br/>
+              <p>When you configure a job to use the Dropbox repository connection
an additional tab is presented. This is the "Dropbox Folder to Index" tab:</p>
+              <br/><br/>

alt="Dropbox Repository Connection, Dropbox Folder to Index" width="80%"/>
+              <br/><br/>
+              <p>The Dropbox Folder to Index tab allows you to specify the directory
which the dropbox connector will index. Dropbox uses unix style paths, with
+                "/" indicating the root path (and thus the entire dropbox). For example if
you want to just index the Photos directory, you would specify "/Photos". </p>
+              <p>Note that the Dropbox Connector during the ingestion process, for
each result, when it find a folder node, it will ingest all the children of the folder node;
+                otherwise it will directly ingest the document.</p>
+              <p>When you are done, and you click the "Save" button, you will see a
summary page looking something like this:</p>
