Zenphoto 18.104.22.168 Mar 07, 2011
See the changes on trac for more information.
The simpler media website CMS
We rarely get to know proper lengthly posts about Zenphoto besides being included in the "the best image gallery scripts for your web site" type of posts that quite some blogs seem to copy from each other all the time. So here we would like to mention two that stand out:
A plugin for the jQuery script jPlayer for displaying video and audio files.
Since we changed a few details regarding themes with the
Zenphoto 1.4 release we did one of our quite rare test runs of all
third party themes we list on our site.
We also decided to update those older 3rd party themes that we host to be roughly compatible (an exception to normally not supporting these.) We re-added the simple+ theme we also roughly updated. These themes remain minimally featured and are still not officially supported.
One of these themes, the Garland theme, will become distributed with Zenphoto 1.4.1. It is an adaption of a Wordpress theme (which is the adaption of a Drupal theme actually) made by the former team member aitf311 years ago.
We threw out a few themes that were just minor clones of the stopdesign theme and the default theme and therefore did not add real value anymore :
This is a just a bugfix release for 1.4 without new features. Changes can be viewed on the trunk (svn) as usual: http://www.zenphoto.org/trac/browser/trunk
Note: This article already had been published in September 2009 under the title "Theme design changes that will appear in Zenphoto 1.3.2". Since 1.3.2 was skipped in favor of 1.4 it is now being republished.
With the 1.4 release we have undertaken some revisions to how themes should normally be coded. They are summarized below:
New filters have been defined to allow plugins to insert HTML in strategic locations on the WEB page.
