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.

    Re: Michael Pollan in the NYTimes cooking in a cobb oven

    I saw this too but wasn't sure where to post it.
    At first I was thinking "36 hours..." meant FROM ONE FIRE. Which would totally be doable with a pompeii or anything else insulated. So that they were continually rebuilding the fire over that time span was kind of a let down for me, but still, glad to see my food hero doing the WFO thing, even if it is in just a cob oven

    An odd coincidence to see Chad Robertson mentioned. I was just digging into and baking the country boule from the new "Tartine Bread" book yesterday.

    As usual per the NYT, the comments are just as interesting as the article.

      I liked the comments too...so many people saying the skinned goat made them swear off meat. Where did they think meat came from?

        The goat, I know. People are so bizarre. It actually made me happy! Much better than mystery meat from the mystery slaughterhouse broken down by the mystery butcher who knows how long ago.
        And damn us elitest backyard WFO cooks who happen to be interested in food enough to care about who produces it AND dare to share it with friends! Evil!

              What I like about this is that we can read it and feel superior. While that is an impressive Cobb oven, it appears to be a lot more work to maintain heat in it. Ours stay so hot for days and days with just a good door...

              Though i do wish that I could get some more help cooking sometimes...Clearly I need some chef friends.
