ZenphotoPress is a plugin for WordPress that makes it easier
to add images stored in a Zenphoto gallery into a blog.
Expand the compressed archive in your
WordPress plugins directory (most likely
Open WordPress and activate the plugin from
the Plugins menu.
Configure ZenphotoPress. Open the Settings menu
and select ZenphotoPress. Insert the URL of your
Zenphoto gallery. That’s it!
Please notice that you may need to clear your browser cache in
order to see the ZenphotoPress icon in the rich text editor.
Where’s my ZenphotoPress icon?
If you don’t see the icon in the WordPress editor, it’s most
likely because of your browser’s cache. Try clearing it and
reloading the page.
How do I use the shortcode?
The most basic shortcode works pretty much like the
shortcode in WordPress (except it fetches images from Zenphoto, of course):
You can also specify one or more of the following parameters:
sort (how to sort images), number (how many images to show) and album
(where to pick the images from).
[zenphotopress sort=random number=3 album=0]
For more information, see the file howto_shortcode.txt in the
plugin’s root directory.
I’m having problems. Is there a debug mode somewhere?
I’m glad you asked
You can enable a debug mode, which will show more error and info
messages. This can be helpful when trying to solve an issue by yourself
or when asking for help.
To enable debug mode, open the file named classes.php, and change
$zp_eh = new ZenphotoPressErrorHandler(ZP_E_FATAL);
$zp_eh = new ZenphotoPressErrorHandler(ZP_E_ALL);
Please be aware that some of the debug info contains sensitive data
relative to the webserver. Keep this in mind when pasting it on the net.
I don’t see any album in ZenphotoPress
There are many possible reasons. On of them is that your WP plugin
folder (or any of its parent folders) is password protected: since
ZenphotoPress doesn’t know your password, it cannot access the page
it uses to collect data.
Nothing works after updating to Zenphoto 1.2.6
That’s because since 1.2.6 zp-config.php was moved from the zp-core/ folder
to the zp-data/ folder. Run the ZenphotoPress configuration once more and
everything should be working again.
What about the name?
ZenphotoPress was once called ZenPress. The name was changed
since version 1.3, because ZenPress was already
a registered trademark.
