Ooo... You're testing me by asking a mergExt question here instead of StackOverflow ;-)

It's definitely not a production/development issue because my demo app is development. Have you tried using your app key and secret in the demo?

The most common reason for dropbox not linking would be people forgetting to handle urlWakUp with the mergDropboxHandleOpenURL command.

on urlWakeUp pURL
  mergDropboxHandleOpenURL pURL
end urlWakeUp

I've setup an app on Dropbox, so I have an app key and secret to pass in the mergDropbox setup command but nothing happens when I do. All this works fine in the demo stack that comes with the external (which links me to Monte's demo Dropbox app) BTW.
