User name, password, folder, file and more can be specified via optional URL parameters. This allows jumping right away into a directory, file preview or proof window and facilitates the integration into other websites or custom web applications.
URL based image access
The HTML tag “<img src=…>” in your website or web application allows linking any image on the WebShare server, in a given resolution or fixed pixel size, in a specified rotation, in a specified image file format (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, …) and in an ICC color profile. This allows repurposing the WebShare served images automatically in any other website.
Custom action scripts
Custom scripts allow creating HTML forms that are embedded in the WebShare file browser. These scripts can now use existing CSS style sheets. Information about the current user, directory, and selected files is passed to the action script.
HTML banner per directory
Custom ASCII or HTML banners per directory, or for the entire sharepoint (“.banner” file), allow informing users about this folder or project.
Detailed accounting audit trail
Accounting details are now more detailed than ever. They include file name, modification date, original file size, compressed size, and deflation rate.
