A good number of us have content stored on google drive. Wouldn't it be handy if we could reference that content in our blog posts? Good news, you can!

Steps

1.Go to your google drive account. 2.Ensure the folder the item is in, is shared (use the option Anyone who has the link can view). 3.Share the item (use the same option as above). Copy the “Link to Share” link. 4.Paste the link in the linkifier below 5.Copy the link produced, and insert it into your blog via any of your usual methods

How it works

A link with this format: https://drive.google.com/file/d/[id number]/edit?usp=sharing is transformed using a regular expression, to this format: <pre>http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=(id number)</pre>

Google Drive Linkifier

Paste your Google Drive Link Here
Your link should have the format: https://drive.google.com/file/d/(id number)/edit?usp=sharing
