Koken

Shared publicly  - 
 
After considerable discussion and reflection, we've decided it's time for a new team to acquire Koken and take the lead. We're selling the CMS and all related assets, and are actively looking for the right company or group of individuals to help carry the torch.

We've posted a lengthy article over at Medium (link below) to broadcast the news outside of the Koken community to cast the widest possible net. In the interests of transparency and openness we've also included financial information, statistics, and more to give those interested in Koken enough detail to make an offer.

During this transitionary period the entire Koken platform will continue to function normally, so you may continue using your installations and web sites as normal.

To our amazing, dedicated, supportive community, we thank you. We gave Koken everything we had, and together we built something incredible. We will do everything we can to ensure this marks the end only of our involvement and the start of something new and better for us all.
The photography content management system is looking for a new home.

Koken 0.19 is out and available for download!

This release tackles two areas we've been wanting to improve for a long time: content sorting and link editing.

Automated sorting no longer requires site filters. We've overhauled the Library's sorting functionality so that edits made there are published to your live site. Can apply different sort criteria to different albums too!

Also, content link "slugs" may now be edited after an item has been published. This really helps for the times when you decide to change a title and want to update the link to match.

Sign-in to your Koken installation and hit the Update button.

Could add a Field-Type "Subject", so that the sent mail will show something helpful in the inbox (if someone add a subject-field of course) - I would suggest to build the subject out of the site-name in brackets (like it is now) and the entered subject-text (instead of the default text that is used right now)

Incredibly wrong, what you do: charge for a basic function like password-protection! AND still not offering download of more than one picture at once. AND: I have to buy the plugin for all my koken websites??? NO!!!

Story
Tagline
Koken is a free system designed for photographers, designers, and creative DIYs to publish independent websites of their work.
Introduction
A koken (pronounced like "spoken") is a stage assistant in traditional Japanese theater. They work behind-the-scenes handling scenery, props and assisting actors. It is with great respect for the legacy and humble nature of the koken that we adopt their name as our own.

We developed Koken to offer photographers, designers and artists a different kind of publishing platform. One that is focused primarily on images, can be used on your own web server, and offers robust publishing tools for web sites as original and unique as the artist themselves.
