Some changes to our news section and RSS feeds

You probably read the Zenpage CMS plugin CombiNews feature has been removed with the coming Zenphoto 1.4.6.

Mobile usage on tiny screens is increasing a lot recently among our clients, and "apps" are the Next Big Thing in the world of tech, so it only makes sense.

Zenphoto will still be your number one media management tool for the web. There will still be a themable web front-end, (...)

zenSocialShare
