Zenphoto jPlayer skins

We made these two clean skins for our plugin of jPlayer. Actually it is one skin in a light and dark flavour inspired a little by Youtube (click to enlarge): 



Use to insert the Google Webmaster Tools verification meta tag into your site pages.



Tries to authorize user based on Apache HTTP authenitcation credentials

The PHP_AUTH_USER is mapped to a Zenphoto user the PHP_AUTH_PW must be in cleartext and match the Zenphoto user's password (If the User validation is set to trusted the PHP_AUTH_PW password will be ignored and need not be cleartext.)

Note that the HTTP logins are outside of Zenphoto so there is no security logging of them. Nor can Zenphoto "log off" the user. The normal logout links will not show for users logged in via this plugin.

Apache configuration:

  • Run the Apache htpasswd utility to create a password file containing your first user: path to apache executables htpasswd -cp path to apache folder passwords user1

    htpasswd will prompt you (...)


Note: The example macros in this text contain a space after the first and before the last bracket. This is to avoid them being executed. On real usages there should be none.

Support for the jPlayer jQuery/Flash 2.0.0 multimedia player ( It will play natively via HTML5 in capable browser if the appropiate multimedia formats are provided.

Audio: .mp3, .m4a, .fla - Counterpart formats .oga and .webma supported (see note below!)
Video: .m4v/.mp4, .flv - Counterpart formats .ogv and .webmv supported (see note below!)




SEO file/folder name clenser.

This plugin will scan your images and albums for file/folder names that are not SEO friendly. It will rename those that found needing improvement replacing offending characters with friendly equivalents.

Note: Clicking the button causes this process to execute. There is no undo.



This imports Wordpress pages, posts, categories and comments to Zenpage
