Our main website was driven by several systems
since the release of Zenphoto 1.1 in 2007:
- Wordpress for news, extensions and user-guide
- Zenphoto itself of course for the showcase, themes and
- trac for the bugtracker
- bbpress for the forum
Zenphoto evolved greatly since then and is now able to take over
the Wordpress parts itself.
Yes, your read correctly. We have indeed abandoned Wordpress!
Against the trends! It's not that we don't like Wordpress
anymore. We do. Really. But you probably can agree with us that we
like to run our own site with our own product as much as possible.
This also is a great showcase for Zenphoto being more than "just a
web gallery". We found this an overdue step.
The site now uses our own CMS plugin Zenpage and the import was
done using our Wordpress import utility. The theme for the site
includes a quite a bit of custom theme coding.
Of course the site is not really Zenphoto only as the forum and
bugtracker will be kept (...)
