How to install third party plugins Mar 20, 2012 / Updated: Mar 30, 2013
Official plugin and extensions resided within /zp-core/zp-extensions. You should never install third party plugins there. Instead you need to install them within the root /plugins folders.
Zenphoto plugins consist at least of one file <pluginname>.php. It may optionally use a folder of its same name within the plugins folder that contains further files like extra functions, css files or images. Example:
plugins/<yourplugin>.php plugins/<yourplugin>/ (contains additional files needed by your plugin)
If you download a (third party) plugin and uncompress (unzip) it you will often have the file or the file and folder within another folder. Don't upload that folder but its content as shown above to the /plugins folder directly. The third party plugin should now show up on the plugins tab on the backend.
Not all themes are already setup with all plugin features because they are optional. On our themes page your can see what standard theme supports which layout specific plugins.
This means you have to add some of them to your theme files yourself. This is generally very easy as it is mostly just adding one extra function where you want the plugin's feature to be visible. Please refer to the plugin's instruction. Please additionally refer to these text to learn how to do that:
