This is a companion to the Showfolio Mod. It adds a panel to the TNG admin page to create or edit folio control files. If a control file (folio.php) exists as TNG media this mod will optionally create an index.php file in the folder to redirect a visitor to the folio and prevent directory browsing. It also inserts a redirection in the control file to prevent direct URL access, as the control file produces no output.

Please be aware that this mod does not register a folio in the TNG database. Once a folio.php file is created, manually or with this mod, and documents are added to the folder, you must add the media file (folio.php) and associate it with a person or event using a document type such as an obituary, history or even a series of photos (for example, family Bible pages).

Mod was developed by Rick Bisbee based on original work and design by Martin Pannier.
