Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Homemade Rosemary Crackers

    I found this recipe over on Chowhound a few months ago, and haven't bought crackers since. The recipe is so simple, so completely delicious. The crackers are easy to make days ahead of time, and would be a fabulous appetizer to set out while people are waiting for pizzas.

    Rosemary Crackers
    from krissywats on chowhound.com's Home Cooking board

    2 Cups flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2/3 Cup warm water
    1/3 cup olive oil

    Preheat to 400. Lightly grease two large cookie sheets (I use spray). Combine flour, baking powder and salt (I use a little extra of kosher or sea salt). Stir in water, oil and mix until a smooth dough forms. Halve dough and flatten to edges on each cookie sheet (this is the only part that takes a little time - a small rolling pin would be great but I use my fingers and love the uneven texture of them). Cut them on the sheet before baking (I use a pizza cutter).

    If you want you can do an egg wash of one egg white and 2T water brush the tops and sprinkle on sesame seeds.

    I typically throw in a bunch of chopped rosemary and occasionally a sprinkle of garlic powder or two. You could really do anything you wanted with these: onion powder, cayenne, other herbs and spices.

    They are a simple cracker but seriously addictive and always a big hit. Once I topped with goat cheese and honey and served as an appetizer.

      We tried this tonight, altered it a bit 50/50 whole wheat, three batches, one with parmeasan cheese, one with kosher salt, one with garlic salt. Simple and delightful!

      THANKS!

        Whoops--I forgot to write that they'll typically cook for about 10-12 minutes. Watch for golden and crispy. Glad you liked the recipe as much as I do! Parmesan is one of my favorite variations, too.

            Did you make these in your WFO or conventional?

              Just a conventional oven this time, but I'll have to experiment with them in the WFO. They took about 14-18 minutes in my gas convection oven at 400 degrees.

                This sounds really great - any pics available? I am having difficulty visualising the shaping and cutting process.

                Also, do you add Rosemary to the dough? This wasn't mentioned in the ingredients list.

                Tks - very keen to try this one...

                  Yep, add the chopped rosemary right into the dough. You can sprinkle parmesan or salt on top after spreading it out if you want to. The dough gets spread pretty thin (probably around 1/16-3/32 of an inch), but it won't stick to your fingers.

                      You can add it to the dough or sprinkle it on top, both work. I wrote up the recipe as a suite101 article and have one picture there. I'll add photos of the process next time I make them.

                          We made a batch of these last night with parmesan and fresh rosemary. I think we could have rolled it out thinner on the cookie sheets, as they took a bit longer to cook, but they turned out nicely. Good recipe. Thanks.

                            I just cranked out four batches of these with assorted flavorings for my big party on Saturday. I figured they'd be a lighter alternative to foccacia to go with the house-sized bowl of artichoke dip I have prepped and ready for WFO.
                            Anyway, the crackers are delicious and so easy I think my dog could make them if he had thumbs. Hopefully there will be some left for Saturday...I can't stop nibbling on them.

                            I made a couple of batches with 1/2 whole wheat flour and they're as good or better as all white flour. I'd imagine rye would be delish as well.
                            Thanks ever so much for the recipe hookup!
