sitemap-extended

Generates individually sitemap.org compatible XML files for use with Google and other search engines. It supports albums and images as well as optionally Zenpage pages, news articles and news categories. Sitemaps need to be generated via the button on the admin overview page and are cached as static files in the /cache_html/sitemap/ folder. Individual sitemaps are generated for all of the above item types as well as a sitemapindex file. Album sitemaps are split into individual sitemaps per album (incl. all albums pages) and image sitemaps into individual sitemaps per album.

The sitemapindex file can be referenced via www.yourdomain.com/zenphoto/index.php?sitemap or with modrewrite www.yourdomain.com/zenphoto/?sitemap.

IMPORTANT: A multilingual sitemap requires the dynamic-locale plugin and either the seo_locale plugin or (...)

backup_restore

This backend plugin provides a means to make backups of your zenphoto database and at a later time restore the database to the contents of one of these backups.

No nightly builds currently

Some may have noticed that we had some server downtime a few days ago. Seems we still face some server issues because of that. One is that currently no newer nightly builds are availabe. The last one is from April 15th...

So if you want or must try the development stream after 1.2.9 official please use the svn for now. We hope to get that fixed soon.

seo_locale

Forces language selection via an URI parameter.

This filter will detect a language setting from the URI and set the locale accordingly.

In addition, theme URLs will have the language-id inserted into them so that the above processing will result in the language being set.

This plugin should not be used if you are using subdomain locales (See the dynamic_locales plugin.)

The URL format is:
mod_rewrite
/ language-id / standard url
else
standard url?locale=language-id
Where language-id is the local identifier (e.g. en, en_US, fr_FR, etc.)

NOTE: the implementation of these URIs requires that Zenphoto parse the URI, save the language request to a cookie, then redirect to the "native" URI. This means that there is an extra redirect for EACH page request!
