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.

  • Italian Ceramics from Deruta

    Here is something new and fun from the FB Store. We have started importing Deruta Ceramics directly from the producer. We really enjoy this pattern, and have been using it for years. They are beautiful, but not so expensive that you put them on the shelf and never touch them. We use the serving pieces for vegetables, meats, pizza, etc. every day.

    The pattern is called Raffaellesco, after the famous renaissance painter, who painted dragons in the borders of his paintings. Very nice.

    We have limited our range to three bowls and one large serving platter, so we can always have inventory and keep our prices down. We have tried very hard to price these at a level where people will really use them. The producer is, of course, interested in developing sales in the U.S. -- so let's see where this goes.

    You can order the ceramics here:

      Me too George, love the variety of ceramics available. I collect the old hand painted plates and we have a whole collection of hand-painted serving dishes.

      did I mention that I love big jugs ?

      Nice FB addition James....

        George, I can relate to that.

        Jim, we have a house full of Valenciano ceramics. Great colors, bold patterns. And, in the days of Peseta, before the dollar crash, they used to be really inexpensive. We used to shop at the ceramics stores on the road between Javea and Denia (is that the A332?). We would stuff them into our luggage for the return trip, and only broke a few. :-)
