"Clones" the currrent Zenphoto installation to a new location using symlinks. The zp-core, themes, user plugins folders and the root index.php file are symlinked. Setup will create the other needed folders.

The Clone installation button will take you to the cloning page where you can select a folder destination for the cloned installation. Upon successful cloning there will be a link to setup for the new installation. (This presumes the setup files are present. If not you will be told which files need to be reloaded.)

Note: If the destination already has a Zenphoto installation these files and folders will be removed by the cloning process!

The Delete setup scripts button will remove the setup files from the current installation. This is the same function provided by Setup after a (...)


Loads Colorbox JS and CSS scripts for selected theme page scripts.

Note that this plugin does not attach Colorbox to any element because there are so many different options and usages. You need to do this in your theme yourself. Visit the colorbox site for information.

The plugin has built in support for 5 example Colorbox themes shown below:

Mobile devices are detected with php-mobile-detect. A particular theme may be designated for phones and for tablets. If the connecting device is one of these, the theme will automatically switch to the designated mobile theme.

Test mode allows you to run your standard desktop client but simulate a phone or a tablet.

You may place a call on mobileTheme::controlLink(); in your theme(s) to allow the client viewer to override the switch and view your standard gallery theme. If the same call is placed in your gallery theme he will be able to switch back as well.
NOTE: This link is present only when the browsing client is a mobile device!

Provides a means to close access to your site for upgrading and testing.

A button is placed in the Utility functions section of the Admin overview page to allow you to manage the state of your site. This button changes function depending on the state of the site. You may close a site, move a closed site to test mode, and then open the site.

Closing the site will cause links to the site front end to be redirected to a script in the folder plugins/site_upgrade. Access to the admin pages remains available. You should close the site while you are uploading a new Zenphoto release so that users will not catch the site in an unstable state.

After you have uploaded the new release and run setup, you place the site in test mode. In this mode only logged in Administrators can access the front end. You can then, as the administrator, view the site to be sure (...)


When this plugin is enabled, a selector will be visible at the upper left corner of the browser window. This enables a visitor to select which theme he wants to use.

Theme selection is stored in a cookie. The default duration of this cookie is 120 minutes, changeable by an option.

No theme participation is needed for this plugin. But to accomplish its independence the plugin will load a small css block in the theme head. The actual styling is an option to the plugin. A theme may replace this CSS via the themeSwitcher_css filter.

Themes and plugins may use the themeSwitcher_head and themeSwitcher_controllink filters to add (or remove) switcher controls. The active() method may be called to see if themeSwitcher will display the control links.
