Uploading and Reviewing Websites and HTML Content

ReviewStudio has two methods for reviewing web page content. The first method allows you to upload and annotate directly on an HTML page or element. The second method allows you to capture live web pages and upload screen captures of content for review.  

Upload HTML of screen captures directly from web pages

 

  1. On the Edit Review page click the "Upload Files" button and select the "HTML URL" option. 

  1. This will open a new menu that will let you enter the URLs of the pages you want to be imported to the Review. You can enter multiple URLs in the Batch tab, or one at a time by clicking “+ Add Another Page”. 

  1. In the Capture Resolutions menu, select the resolutions of the webpage as you want it presented in the Review. Note that each resolution selected will be presented as a separate file for review and approval in the Review Canvas.  

  1. Select if you would like to save the page as live HTML (with functioning links) by clicking Save HTML or as a Screen capture image by clicking Save Image. Note that Screen captures may show some glitches depending on the content that is being loaded. Pages that have a lot of animation are the most prone to problems and uploading the HTML is recommended for sites with animated content. It's always a good idea to review the screenshots for accuracy before you share them.

 

Please note that your pages can take a few moments to be prepared. Once you see the thumbnail loaded in the Edit Review page, your content is ready for review and approval.  

Upload of HTML Content as a .ZIP

  1. Either as a new Review click “New Review +” or on the Review Edit page, click the “Upload Files" button and select the "HTML - Files (.zip)" option. 

  2. Upload a .zip file that contains all the page content. Note that a file called 'index.html' must be present in the root of the .zip file or the page will not install. If any absolute paths are specified in the code, the remote server must allow any server to fetch the content (relative paths should work fine in all circumstances). 

  3. You can specify the resolution that you want the content to be displayed by including the resolution anywhere in the .zip file name. For example, banner-970x250.zip will display the content in an iFrame fixed to that resolution.  

Note that it may take a short time for the page to be installed but once a thumbnail shows up on the edit page, the content is ready to share.  

Batch Uploading of HTML Files 

Using the Batch upload of HTML links, you can upload multiple website pages at the same time. 

  1. Click New Review or Edit on an existing Review card. 

  2. Click Upload Files and choose HTML - URL.

  1. Choose the Pages tab and enter one URL link per line. You can select Add Another Page for each page you wish to add as an item in the Review.

  1. As an alternative, you can select the Batch tab to cut and paste a list of URLs from another source.

  1. Click Validate to verify the pages and add them to the Pages tab.  

Reviewing HTML Content   

Within the Review Canvas, the HTML content will be displayed within an iFrame. If the content exceeds the iFrame resolution, you may scroll the content using your mouse, touchpad or scrollbar of the iFrame.

Annotations may be made directly on the content as they are with any other file. Clicking the header of a comment in the comment bar will automatically scroll the iFrame if necessary so that any associated annotation will be visible. 

To test controls or links within the content you can select the "Navigate" button below the iFrame. This will override the annotation tool so that you may click on any controls or links in the page (links will open in a new browser tab). To resume annotations, click on the "Annotate" button.
