Installing this and customizing a template was not what I was supposed to be doing yesterday, but here's the result of the day's work:http://www.lisavollrath.com/zp/
The Altered Photos directory has all its descriptions, and is pretty much complete.
This isn't connected to the rest of the site yet, because I'm currently moving the entire site over from hand-coded pages and cgi scripts to Wordpress. (If you click on the gallery links on the site, you'll see the old one---pack a lunch, because it's massive.)
Because I'm in need of nested directories---I have twenty six different projects that fall under Altered Books---I'm contemplating running a second copy of ZenPhoto to accomodate all my work, and building a static page to hold links to this gallery, my AB gallery, and a third page for other types of work.
I'm thrilled to be able to do all this with a lightweight package. Everything else I'd considered had tons of features I just don't need---in fact, I even stripped out some of the functions of Zenphoto, like clicking to the largest version of the photo, which isn't necessary for the sizes of my photos, and comments, which are disabled across the board on my site because of idiots who abuse the function.
Anyway, thanks for such a simple script. I found it very easy to take pieces and parts of different existing themes, and make one that fit my site---because I'm an artist, not a developer, and have no clue how to write PHP on my own.
