Piwigo and Zenphoto to join forces!

This was of course an April Fools joke. We have no plans to merge the projects. However, it's true that both projects share the same spirit and have a friendly connection for years. Thanks to the Piwigo team for joining us with this little fun!


After long negotiations and deliberations the teams of Piwigo and Zenphoto have decided to merge projects. The reason is the ever growing competition with the big CMS like Wordpress (although their gallery functions are nowhere near those of Piwigo and Zenphoto), social networks or online photo communities like flickr or Picasa.

We know this comes as a big surprise to you our users. But there is no need to fear! Piwigo and Zenphoto share the same strong open source spirit. The teams also had a friendly connection by recommending each other for years!

gSlideshow is a slideshow addon for the core slideshow extension. It uses jQuery Galleria to present a fluid/responsive, fullscreen image slideshow. The provided theme file slideshow.php must reside in the theme folder for calling slideshows from album, image, and search pages. You can also embed a slideshow of an album (including dynamic), or image statistic set (popular, latest, random, most rated, etc) directly into a theme page or codeblock. NOTE: gSlideshow does not support movie and audio files, they will simply not be included.

gSlideshow is responsive, displaying fullscreen or perfectly inside any containing block in your theme. It also has true fullscreen capability for users to toggle true browser fullscreen (if browser supports).
