tl;dr: IO200 is a modern alternative for Koken. Koken installations can be automatically migrated to IO200 CMS.
For many years, I have been using Koken for managing my photo websites. Unfortunately, there have been no updates for Koken since 2017 and the community forum as well as the documentation went offline. Even worse, parts of the system already stopped working due to issues with new PHP versions.
Therefore, I was looking for an alternative for Koken. But I just couldn't find a suitable alternative for Koken. General CMS's like WordPress (even with plugins) just don't fit the needs of photographers. And I also don't want to upload my photos to any hosted photography website provider. Furthermore, I need a flexible frontend system that is fully customizable.
Long story short: I have developed a modern CMS alternative to Koken. The new system (IO200 CMS) is precisely tailored to the needs of photographers and artists and offers numerous outstanding features. During the installation of IO200 all photos, albums, sets, categories, tags, articles and pages can be automatically migrated from Koken to IO200.
If you are interested, I highly recommend to check out IO200 CMS, the modern alternative to Koken.
