Zenphoto plugin: adminBranding

Zenphoto admin customization previews

adminBranding is a plugin for Zenphoto CMS that allows for customization of Admin backend.

Originally adminBranding was intended as a fork of zp-branding v1.4 to be merged with zp-branding.
Since our approaches to the task and customisation needs are so different, me and it’s author fretzl have decided to keep projects separate, hence the rename.

Instead of proposed zp-branding ver 2.0 this work is therefore released as adminBranding v1.0 and will be updated if need be by myself.
It was tested with latest Zenphoto version.

What it does differently from zp-branding:

  • adminBranding doesn’t use included custom Logo image.
  • custom Logos need to be uploaded into designated area, to protect files from being overwritten on the update.
  • adminBranding allows user mix and match plugin Options to combine custom and default elements for their desired look.
  • adminBranding greatly expands available options.
