<![CDATA[Path constants (Customizing, Development, FAQ, Theming & Templating, Tutorials, User Guide)]]> http://www.zenphoto.org/news/path-constants Zenphoto uses several path related constants internally you should always use these if you work with paths so your themes and plugins are safe for any possible name changes. These constants are defined in /zp-core/global-definitions.php.

For all urls to actual items (albums, image, Zenpage news and pages) you should rather use Zenphoto's object model framework or the related template functions.

/backup/ – stores the database backup made using the backup utility
ALBUM_FOLDER_WEBPATH
http(s)://yourdomain.com/albums/ – full webpath to the /albums folder
ALBUM_FOLDER_SERVERPATH
/var/www/html/zenphoto/albums/ – The path to the albums folder but with the full server path if you installed in a subfolder "zenphoto" (exact path naturally depends on the host)

STATIC_CACHE_FOLDER
/cache_html/ – stores all the cached static HTML files of your site pages if using the static_html_cache plugin and also the RSS feeds if the RSS cache is enabled.
THEMEFOLDER
/themes/ – stores all themes

Note: The constants do not include the slashes.

<![CDATA[Zenphoto URL structure (FAQ, Troubleshooting, Tutorials, User Guide)]]> http://www.zenphoto.org/news/zenphoto-url-structure Zenphoto has a specific URL structure for all front end items we explain here. We recommend to use mod_rewrite but Zenphoto works without it as well. The examples assume Zenphoto has been installed in the root of a domain.

Mod_rewrite links (SEO friendly)

The URL's are not completly rewritten via mod_rewrite/htaccess but internally. Therefore some parts can be changed via the rewriteToken plugin.

Gallery
Gallery index:
yourdomain.com
Gallery index, several pages:
yourdomain.com/page/<pagenumber>
Album (thumbnail page):
yourdomain.com/<albumname>/
Album, several pages:
yourdomain.com/<albumname>/page/<pagenumber>
Sub album (similar for more levels):
yourdomain.com/<albumname/subalbum>/
Image page (sized image):
yourdomain.com/<albumname>/<imagename.suffix><mod_rewrite suffix e.g .html (optional)>
Link to a tag:
yourdomain.com/page/search/tags/<tagname>
Date archive link:
yourdomain.com/page/archive/<YYYY-MM>
Static custom page:
yourdomain.com/page/<custompagename>
Zenpage CMS plugin
News:
yourdomain.com/news/
News, several pages:
yourdomain.com/news/<pagenumber>
News category:
yourdomain.com/news/category/<category titlelink>
News category, several pages:
yourdomain.com/news/category/<category titlelink>/<pagenumber>
Single news articles:
yourdomain.com/news/<article titlelink>
News date archive:
 yourdomain.com/news/archive/<YYYY-MM>
Page:
yourdomain.com/pages/<page titlelink>

Note: Although Zenpage pages and news categories can be nested it is not reflected in the url. The benefit is that on re-sorting/re-nesting the links never outdate.

Non mod_rewrite links
