School Archive Demo has been created to showcase how a simple framework using WordPress can be utilised to display images, magazines and documents from a schools archive collection.

Content is accessed through the menus at the top of the page. The magazine menu splits the collection into manageable portions with each web page displaying thumbnails of the magazine covers. Clicking the cover opens the magazine pdf in the browser’s default reader through which the magazine contents can be searched.

In a similar manner the images menu splits up the photograph collection into discrete sections. With a page open clicking a thumbnail displays a full screen image along with the image caption. Clicking the full screen image zooms the display up to full size.
