A “databaseless” extranet for reviewing design mock-ups.
###Overview### This online tool is made for showcasing designs for review. It loads a folder of images and allows them to be displayed all together as a list, or one at a time as a slideshow.
###Setup### To install, add the files to a root folder. Be sure to include the ".htaccess" file. This file will control the url routing. Add designs to it within the following directory structure under “archive”: 2015/client-name/project/round. There is an example included to get you started.
Note : Brewer shortens the name of the four digit year folder to two digits when displayed in the url.
Link Shortening : To enable Google link shortening, create and add a Google Developer API Key to the value of "$GoogleAPIKey" in the file "googleAPIKey.php". Once enabled a shortened link will appear in the bottom of the browser window. Copy the link to share.
Watermarking : There is a watermark image included by default. Replace "watermark.png" located in the "archive" folder to personalize it. To enable watermarking, pass the url variable "?wm=1".
You can place a different watermark.png file in every folder to override the watermark image of it's parent folder.
Background color : You can override Brewer’s default background color by passing in the url variable ?bg=[some color]. When using a hex color ommit the “#” symbol.
Custom company name display : The company name that displays in the header is derived from the name of it's corresponding folder. To override this, pass the url variable ?cn=[some company name].
Using multiple url variables : If you're not familiar with url variables, they are parameter names and data you can pass to a website by appending them to the end of the url. The first one is set by a preceding “?”. Additional variables can be passed with the use of an “&”.
