Hi,

I am in the process of building a new website (wordpress) for my Web Dev company.

I want to add an area to my website where i can upload my client's designs / work for review.

Up until now, i have been creating a sub folder for each client via my FTP, and then i upload a very simple script and the designs.

When the client visits the link that i send them - www.mywebsite.com/clientname - the script sets the designs (.png) as a centered background image, so that the client can scroll the page as if it was a webpage. Obviously this has limitations  and it is not idea when viewing full width designs.

Anyway, i am curious to know what other people use when sending their design / work to their clients for feedback. Ideally i'd like to keep it within my site. Thanks in advance for your help.

Could you use a sub-domain and put the full clients website up?
www.clientname.mywebsite.com

You can take screen shots of the initial design and put up PDFs of them on the client area
