Zenphoto.org presents contributor profile pages!

Zenphoto is a smaller CMS with a small community but from all over the world. We made these new pages for these reasons: 

  • Showcasing your contributions
  • Easier maintenance of author credits as we don’t have to change multiple entries if a user name or website link changes
  • And we do admit: A bit curiosity about activity and number of contributors overall

We value and welcome all contributions to the project. Be it as an officially committed team member, by providing bug fixes to releases or creating third party solutions. Therefore we do list people that haven’t contributed for years. 

So what is it? 

On each extension or theme entry on our site you now see a credit box on the right (example) that lists all developers/authors that contributed this. If we know it shows the real name and the screename. Each name is linked to an specific page for this developer that we (...)

New Youtube channel url

For quite some time the Youtube channel of our team member acrylian acted as the official Zenphoto channel:
http://www.youtube.com/acrylian

Since it is not possible to change it afterwards, we opened a new one. We thought a better "branded" URL is not a bad idea. Any new stuff made or found will be put here: http://www.youtube.com/zenphotocms

We know we are rather inactive there but hopefully we will be able to do some tutorials in the future. If you know about some, did some or would like to do some Zenphoto tutorials or screencast, let us know so we can feature them there. 

If your video is not on Youtube let us know as well as we gladly list all we get to know about on our site's screenshots section.

How to write the application name?

Numerous versions of how the name is written in normal text fly around the net:

  1. ZenPhoto
  2. ZENphoto
  3. zenPHOTO
  4. Zen Photo
  5. Zenphoto

Sometimes in the past even we were not sure. Although our logo suggests "zenPHOTO", the official way to write the name is indeed simply "Zenphoto".

Thanks for listening...:-)

Third party tools used by Zenphoto

These are third party tools we use within the Zenphoto package itself and partly on this website's theme This list is surely missing something!

zenLdap
