Zenphoto URL structure

    Zenphoto has a specific URL structure for all front end items we explain here. We recommend to use mod_rewrite but Zenphoto works without it as well. The examples assume Zenphoto has been installed in the root of a domain.

    Mod_rewrite links (SEO friendly)

    The URL's are not completly rewritten via mod_rewrite/htaccess but internally. Therefore some parts can be changed via the rewriteToken plugin.

    Gallery
    Gallery index:
    yourdomain.com
    Gallery index, several pages:
    yourdomain.com/page/<pagenumber>
    Album (thumbnail page):
    yourdomain.com/<albumname>/
    Album, several pages:
    yourdomain.com/<albumname>/page/<pagenumber>
    Sub album (similar for more levels):
    yourdomain.com/<albumname/subalbum>/
    Image page (sized image):
    yourdomain.com/<albumname>/<imagename.suffix><mod_rewrite suffix e.g .html (optional)>
    Link to a tag:
    yourdomain.com/page/search/tags/<tagname>
    Date archive link:
    yourdomain.com/page/archive/<YYYY-MM>
    Static custom page:
    yourdomain.com/page/<custompagename>
    Zenpage CMS plugin
    News:
    yourdomain.com/news/
    News, several pages:
    yourdomain.com/news/<pagenumber>
    News category:
    yourdomain.com/news/category/<category titlelink>
    News category, several pages:
    yourdomain.com/news/category/<category titlelink>/<pagenumber>
    Single news articles:
    yourdomain.com/news/<article titlelink>
    News date archive:
     yourdomain.com/news/archive/<YYYY-MM>
    Page:
    yourdomain.com/pages/<page titlelink>

    Note: Although Zenpage pages and news categories can be nested it is not reflected in the URL. The benefit is that on re-sorting/re-nesting the links never outdate.
