ZenLatest is a plugin for WordPress that can show the latest additions to a ZenPhoto installation. The plugin has been tested to work with WordPress 2

  1. Upload zenlatest.php to the /wp-content/plugins/zenlatest directory
  2. Create a directory called cache under the installation
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  4. Insert the sidebar through the administration interface

The configuration of ZenLatest is done through the setup menu in the main windows of the adminstration interface of WordPress.

The following is a description of the parameters and their contents.

  • Title This is the title of the widget. This will be displayed above the images in wordpress.

  • Image count The number of images to be displayed in wordpress.

  • Thumbnail height The height in pixels for the thumbnails.

  • Thumbnail width The width in pixels for the thumbnails.

  • Database host The database host. Usually localhost, but the plugin has support for this database being on a different server.

  • Database The database to use.

  • Database user The username to use in the connection.

  • Database password The password for the user.

All these database options are duplicated. One set for ZenPhoto and one set for WordPress. This is to enable support for the databases being on different servers and using different usernames/passwords. If you are using the same server, just duplicate the settings.

  • ZenPhoto albums installation (http) The web path to your ZenPhoto installation. Example : http://www.fam-friis.dk/zenphoto/albums/

  • ZenPhoto path (/home) The installation path (full path). Example : /home/www/fam-friis.dk/zenphoto/albums/ If you are running your site on a public server, you might need to contact your server administrator to get the full path.

  • ZenLatest cache path (/home) Full path to the ZenLatest cache. Example : /home/www/fam-friis.dk/zenphoto/albums/ This is to support the option of placing the cache directory elsewhere.

  • Thumbnail path (http) The web path to the cache directory. Example : http://www.fam-friis.dk/wp-content/plugins/zenlatest/cache/ You might not have directory listing access to this path.

  • Exclude albums A comma separated list of albums NOT to show pictures from. Leaving this empty will show pictures from all albums.

  • Display images as links Option to show the thumbnails as links or just plain thumbnails.

  • Display images as links to albums Option to have the links refer to the album directory instead of the individual images.
