Disappearing Act & Google Drive Tip

August 8, 2013

Hey all. I’d like to apologize for my disappearing act. Been pretty swamped with business and such, but I’m going to make more of an effort to get back into this.

For my return back, here is a nice little Google Drive tip that I found on funbutlearn.com. You can use Google Drive to host and download files directly. You do that by plugging the file’s unique key into a direct download link.

You can find your key when you open the file in the default view:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/<KEY>/edit

Then you can take that key and plug it into this url:

http://drive.google.com/uc?id=<KEY>&e=download

Voila! You can also hotlink images from Google Drive into your site.

Take care!
