Zenphoto 1.4.14

This is a bugfix and security release.

The security issue affects specifially the third party phpmailer library used by the PHPMailer plugin. More info on that on https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/releases. You basically could only be affected if you use this plugin as the mailing facility via the contact_form plugin for example.

General

  • Zenphoto now exposes only the general Zenphoto version and the script generation time within the html comment at the bottom of  front end theme files. Formerly it also exposes some server related data like the graphic lib and which plugins are being used.
    This was of course to help us supporting on the forum as we would get an some base information about the install even if those haven't been provided. But of course it might give more information than necessary to (...)

Site migration finally finished!

Things always take longer than expected. We have successfully finished moving the site to a new webhost. Besides quite some general time issues and administrative things behind the scenes, primarily regarding the new forum software, it took several days to transfer the domain.

New forum and new forum URL

The forum has been successfully migrated from the old standalone bbPress to Vanilla Forums. We chose this forum because it is actively maintained and also, more importantly, provided an official way to migrate even older bbPress versions like the one we used. The forum is now located on its own subdomain http://forum.zenphoto.org.

Since it is not a relaunch (yet), we mimic the old forum theme as far as possible (Theming Vanilla is a bit less convenient than Zenphoto is ;-)). We have limited the categories (= sub forums) to a few we think make sense. Actually we never paid that much (...)

Site maintenance and forum migration

We are doing some site maintenance from today on possibly the next days which will cause some downtime on the site and especially the forum. It involves moving to another webhost and migrating the old bbPress standalone forum – sadly being turned into a WordPress plugin made this unusable for us – to a new forum software.

Since we are doing this literally in our spare time this might even take a few days just in case any issues occur. We hope not as tests worked well so far. If all works out you will not need to re-register on the new forum and be able to use your current credentials. 

If you subscribed to the forum via RSS please note that RSS url's will change. Additionally the url of the forum itself will change. We will post more about that later once we are done.
