Theming Tutorial

Part 1: Theme Basics

What should I know before making a custom theme?

During the process of this article, we will be looking at the basic files and functions that are necessary to create a working Zenphoto theme, We'll use the basic theme as an example. We will not go into every single detail of the code because we assume that you have a good understanding of HTML and CSS. You should also have a basic understanding what PHP is and how PHP code is put into a webpage and communicates with the server and returns information back to the client. If you don't have this understanding we recommend to learn that first. Good resources are for example:

Zenphoto Gallery

Zenphoto Gallery allows to use Zenphoto albums in WordPress posts. Other plugins need access to Zenphoto's database, not so this one. Given a JSON frontend to Zenphoto's RSS facilities (included), Zenphoto Gallery pulls the images from both the general images feed and album feeds. It also provides some means to customize gallery layout and behaviour.

Important note regarding recent spam posts on the forum [Update]

The last days we suffered an annoying flood of spam posts that were pretending interesst. However, their only reason was to gain SEO ranking via the website link that can be attached to the forum profile on our "cost".

It is hard to tell what post are actually serious and we have no time or motivation to check every poster's profile. Therefore we have now disabled the display of any website link attached to your profiles.
