Script to use Google Analytics with Zenphoto.

One app to rule them all


This post is of course our annual April Fools Day joke :-)

You will shortly see the 1.4.6 release, which will be our last "traditional" server based application. Afterwards we will follow a new path: the next release of Zenphoto will be an app for Android and iOS. Although there will also be apps for Mac and Linux desktop systems (sorry, no Windows) we strongly believe that the mobile web is the future. 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, (...)


zenBits is a Zenphoto plugin for integration.


zenSocialShare is a plug-in for Zenphoto that enables the common required meta-tags for sharing on social networks. It currently provides Open Graph keys which Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+ use to show "pretty shares" when a user shares info. It also provides Twitter Card meta-keys if you want to have your site approved for twitter cards.

zenSocialShare also provides a simple template call that will display sharing buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, & Google+ horizontally. Option interface allows indidivuals to turn off networks they do not wish to display.

Zenphoto 1.4.6 now in Beta

In preparation for the Zenphoto 1.4.6 release next week the 1.4.5 release stream has been officially capped. The master branch on GitHub is now the 1.4.6 beta release and the 1.4.6 GitHub branch has been removed.


Easy Media website management!

Zenphoto is a CMS for selfhosted, gallery focused websites. Our focus lies on being easy to use and having all the features there when you need them (but out of the way if you don't).

Zenphoto features support for images, video and audio formats, and the Zenpage CMS plugin provides a fully integrated news section (blog) and custom pages to run entire websites.

This makes Zenphoto the ideal CMS for personal websites of illustrators, artists, designers, photographers, film makers and musicians.

Manage image, video and audio files!

Articles about Zenphoto

We collected (and collect) various articles we find about Zenphoto on the net and elsewhere. Originally this was located on the testimonials page and now moved here to the user guide as that seems to be more fitting.

Note that some articles are quite a little older so will of course not reflect current state of Zenphoto at all.


Creates a rewrite rule for "page/gallery" and modifies the link to same to follow the rule.

Similar functionality will included in the next Zenphoto release.

Zenphoto 1.4.6 dev build needs testers

We have placed the 1.4.5 release into a "critical fixes only" state so that we can concentrate on completing the 1.4.6 release development and stabilization. This means that we will fix only security issues or fatal crash problems should they occur.

Zenphoto 1.4.6 has not got a final release schedule, but we believe it will be available in a few months. While we do not recommend using 1.4.6 on a production site at this time, we would appreciate any testing efforts that our users can provide.

This is specially true for Theme and Plugin developers. We have made some efforts at "standardizing" a lot of the functions and object methods. This has resulted in a significant volume of change to the software. 

You should review the 1.4.6 release document for any change that might impact your development. Let us know about any issue you might find on our forum or (...)

Themes section updates (January 2014)

Our contributor gjr released his new great them zpBase a few day ago. He sadly has abandoned all of his older themes and plugins now because of lacking time maintaining them. 

Therefore we moved copies of all his themes we had copies of to our unsupported GitHub repository being the archive of old abandoned ZP stuff. The themes zpFocus, zpMinimal and zpMasonry had been generally updated to work with Zenphoto 1.4.5 by acrylian a while ago. You can see the status of all other things on gjr's contribution page.

Also gone are all themes and plugins by contributor The Whole Live To Learn as the linked website appears to be gone. His flag_language_selector plugin is obsolete (...)
