Support changes - Forum to be closed

Note: Of course this is our traditional April Fools joke for this year we simply can't resist to do...;-) Although the Twitter account is indeed real it probably will not be that much used.

The Zenphoto team is pleased to announce a change in focus for our support efforts.

We will discontinue using the bbpress based www.zenphoto.org/support and move all support to an new Twitter account. We believe this will better serve both our users and developers.

The support forum was plagued by lengthy postings including such unnecessary information as the Poster's Zenphoto version and Theme.

Server Downtime March 19th 9PM PST (Old)

Just wanted to let you all know that the server will be down this evening at 9PM PST (4AM UTC) for approximately 30 minutes for an upgrade. Hopefully this will allow us to handle the continually increasing traffic and hits we've been getting lately (thanks!).

We're able to pay for this upgrade thanks to your donations and support (for those interested, here is a rough financial report of the last several years), so thank you to all who have helped us in the past. However, the upgrade will increase our operating costs significantly, making donations more important than ever to support the site and the software. If you like Zenphoto, please consider taking a moment to donate using the link to the right.

Thanks again, and I hope you continue enjoying Zenphoto for many years to come.

Two nice posts about Zenphoto

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:
