I finally carved some time to read up and study how to use the new 4.7 feature "Branding".
But as I attempted to test things I realized that all the branding customization files (logos, custom home page, header, etc.) need to be on THE dataverse installation (localhost).
I do not have login access to the server, so I cannot put files in the /var/www/dataverse/branding folder.
So there is no other way to customize without having access to this directory on the "localhost"?
Ok, if that's the case then I am going to have to beg and beg to get permissions. I am able to do other admin database setting changes using curl and API commands (our test machine is behind our IP authenticated network).
Any advice other than get permissions?
