- Help on the forum
- Report bugs and test support/development builds
- Provide fixes/patches or suggestions on the bugtracker
- Provide translations
- Contribtute to documentations or write tutorials
More experienced users certainly may also contribute in these areas:
- Write plugins or maintain/update third party plugins abandoned by their original developers.
- Create new themes or maintain/update third party themes abandoned by their original developers

Submission minimum requirements:

- The site must use a custom designed theme. Any plain use of any of the standard or third party themes from the themes section or just minor modifications of one of those is considered invalid.
Please note that we can't guarantee that we include every submitted site even if it matches the above requirements. Note also this showcase is not about your content no matter how great, it's about using Zenphoto!
If your submitted site is considered valid you agree to the following:
- We will take a screenshot and add it to the showcase gallery.
- We may upload that screenshot to our social networks (e.g. Google+, Twitter) only to promote Zenphoto. If you don't like this please state this on the forum when submitting.
- We of course will not use the screenshot for any other purpose and we will of course link to your site. You can request a entry removal at any time.
- If your screenshot requires an update because e.g. design changes of your site, let us know on the forum thread. Then we get it updated.
