Dropbox Issue With Special Characters in Folder Names
« on: April 15, 2016, 12:14:27 PM »
When using the Dropbox component, and trying to show content from a Dropbox folder that has a special character in its name, including apostrophes, the content of that folder will not show through in Signage Player, despite showing through in Signage Studio.

As soon as the special character is removed from the folder name, the content displays as it should through Signage Player.

Please can this be fixed as we often do not have control over the naming of folders.

Not sure if the same issue applies to file names?

Testing on SignagePlayer v.4.34.35 on Windows based systems.
