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.

  • A new stand mixer

    I'm in the market for a new stand mixer and wanted to ask what folks use, like, dislike, etc. I'm leaning toward a 6 quart, 525W KitchenAid Professional -- the big one. You can get a good deal from a couple of eBay merchants -- they even beat Costco.

    Do you like your KitchenAid? Any Electrolux or Bosch owners out there?

    Let me know.

    i have the kitchenaid 6 quart professional 600. it works fine. make sure that you get the newer version that has all metal gearing, as the older ones' plastic drive gears would wear out really quickly when used as a dough mixer. even this one heats up a bit when i do a large batch, but i'm pretty sure it's the best you can get short of buying the smallest industrial mixers (they make tabletop ones that are about 25-30 qts.--hobart is a really good standby brand).

      Paul,

      Thanks. Quite the coincidence. I just heard from a friend who a serious baker, who said the exact same thing. Metals gears and a new dough hook, and that they are blowing out the "6" at a lower price, not the "600".

      I've heard it twice, so it must be true.

            here's a forum where they are discussing the kitchenaid pro600 mixer:

            http://forum.kitchenaid.com/forums/t...?TOPIC_ID=2226

            The first writer on this thread says that with the spiral hook it is much better than the hobart mixer used in professional kitchens.
