create_album

Allows an under-priviledged user to create a root level album. This album is then assigned in the users managed albums list.

The User interface appears on the user tab in the "custom data" area when an enabled user is logged in. Candidate users must have Album and Upload rights. Users with Admin right or Manage all album rights can already make root level albums, so are excluded from this plugin.

 

A few theming tutorial updates

We have updated our theming tutorial a little. Bascially just two things are new:

  1. New code examples that provide an more complete overview of the core structure of standard theme files. These are also provided as downloads as a kind of quick start kit.
  2. A code highlighter that should make reading easier (this one is actually site wide).

Anyway, if you feel any part on our documentation lacking detail or else, we are an open source project anyone can contribute to. You find all info how to contribute on our "Get involved" page.

Using tinyZenpage

This is a plugin to the TinyMCE plugin and was introduced with the Zenpage CMS plugin. It provides access to your Zenphoto albums and images as well as Zenpage pages, news articles and news categories to easily include them into your pages and articles. Depending on the configuration file chosen you can do the same of course for album and image descriptions, bascially all content fields that support TinyMCE.

Obviously inspired by ZenphotoPress by Alessandro "Simbul" Morandi

Features

You can include links to articles, categories and pages into any field with an active tinyMCE editor:

  • Direct links to pages, news articles and news categories with the title as link text

PHP4 no longer supported with Zenphoto 1.4.1

We have intended to drop support for ancient versions of PHP and MySQL--see http://www.zenphoto.org/news/zenphoto-requirements. It seems this has come sooner than anticipated for PHP version 4. The Zenphoto 1.4.1 release will generate PHP errors in several critical functions due to parameter changes we have made.

We have decided that the effort to change these references so that PHP 4 does not fault is both undesirable for the future of Zenphoto and potentially too destabilizing to the current release.

For this reason Zenphoto 1.4.1 and onward now requries PHP 5 or higher. We regret this post-facto notice. We did not notice this as we are working on PHP 5.2+ (as noted on the Zenphoto requirements page as well).

If your site is running on PHP4 you will need to change to PHP 5 or newer before you (...)

Zenphoto requirements

It was with great interest that we read the following announcement from the people at Wordpress: Are You Ready for WordPress 3.2?

Zenphoto has long recommended similar requirements for its installations. Now, however, I think that the handwriting is on the wall. We no longer test in the older PHP and MySQL environments and certainly we will drop their support entirely in the future. Now is the time to prepare your site for this future.

 We have just released Zenphoto 1.4.1, so there will be a reasonable window for you to get ready. Zenphoto 1.4.2 is currently targeted for the end of the year. The decision has not yet been finalized. However, there is some unnecessary overhead on Zenphoto to continue to provide for these ancient versions of PHP and MySQL. All will benefit when they are gone.

If you are an (...)
