    Hi, Based on one of the plugin listed at http://www.zenphoto.org/2008/01/wordpress-plugins/, I have created another plugin to list latest albums with thumb on Wordpress sidebar. It is called MYZenAlbums. Thanks for the creation of ZenPhoto, it's just wonderful!

    Download MYZenAlbums: http://basri.my/plugins/myzenalbums
    Demo: http://basri.my/
    Installation:
    1. Download and extract.
    2. Upload myzenalbums folder to /wp-content/plugins
    3. Activate it at your Wordpress dashboard.
    4. Configure Settings>MyZenAlbums. It will require db server (normally localhost), db username, db password, and the URL where you install ZenPhoto.

    Nice plugin!
    I see that this is a widget. Can it also be used inside templates, so not as a widget?
    Also, can the link to the album be pointed to the thumbs page instead of the image page?

    jackdaw, thanks for your ideas. a function can be called from template myzenalbums();. the link has been updated to link to the thumbs.

    It's been added on our extensions page, too. We link to your page, so please don't change the link without telling...:-)

    Hi,

    I've installed MyZenAlbums on my wordpress website, I've used the myzenalbums(); template to call on the home page, but while it display the right album name and link doesn't display the thumbinail..

    What's wrong with my installation?

    look at here: http://www.ziguline.com
    at the bottom on the right side of the home page

    Thank you

    MyZenAlbums was working for me through Wordpress 4.6, on PHP 5.5. Now that I've moved to Wordpress 4.7 on PHP 5.6, it's stopped working.

    As a substitute (not quite the same functionality), I've been using the Flickr Widget at http://wordpress.org/plugins/flickr-widget/ . This will take the RSS feed from Zenphoto, to show the most recent images in the sidebar.

    Possibly anything that can output an RSS feed will work. No realy surprise it stopped working if it hasn't been updated for eight years. It seems not even to be available anymore. We will mark the entry on our site accordingly.

    Is there an RSS feed available for latest albums (as opposed to latest images)?

    I've been reading http://www.zenphoto.org/documentation/plugins/feed/_zp-extensions---rss.php.html , and I see some album feeds, but it looks like the specific album has to be named.

    If a feed for the latest albums is available, then I will have come closer to the functionality of MyZenAlbums.

    I actually still have a copy of the MyZenAlbums plugin on my laptop. It's presumably licensed under GPL by Basri Mahayedin, who may have now advanced in his career to be too busy to maintain it.

    Yes, there is a latest albums feed. On getRSSLink() of the rss plugin you get it by setting $option to albumrss.

    If you intend to "take over" MyZenAlbums or create something new, let us know and we gladly update/add the entry on extensions section.
