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.

  • Magic Mill Assistent "Grain Mill" attachment

    I have the Magic Mill Assistent AND I LOVE IT! I am curious if anyone here has the grain mill attachment for it as I'm looking to buy one and would like a little feed back on how well it performed for you. Just the fact that it is an Electrolux product should be reason enough to buy it, but like anyone else, hate to waist money if it's not going to perform as well as some of the high end grain mills. It sure would be nice to grind the flour and then make the dough with one machine.

    Thanks,
    Bruce.

    'Fraid I can't help on the mill. But that is a very nice mixer.

        Actually, mine walks the dog just fine - but it can't mix dough.

          It turned out that I couldn't wait. I'll keep you posted as to how it does milling flour.

                Hmm,
                Do a search on milling flour or similar text on this site. I think CJ did a few comments on the subject. I believe that flour needs to be stored for a period after milling before it is suitable for baking/cooking with.

                    I remember that one!

                    ...and once we find it again you can check if I'm right, but I seem to recall that it said you can either use the flour right away when its freshly milled, OR you store it for something like two weeks, so that... um... the free radicals and um, gluten, er...

                    Ok, no idea what the reason was, but aparently either really freshly milled or stored flour will work.

                      Oh hey, and let us know how the milling attachment works.

                      I've got an Electrolux, but I never realised it could also mill grain!

                          Bruce,

                          In the trade, freshly milled flour is called "green." At this stage, it isn't really very workable, and dough made from it will not hold its shape. The two compounds that join to create gluten when the flour is hydrated are not fully developed either. Result: lumpy loaves with minimal rise.

                          Unbleached flour is left to oxidize naturally in the presence of oxygen. Bleaching and bromating are introduced to bypass the oxidation period, bringing the flour from mill to shelf much more quickly. I prefer flour without chemicals, thanks. That's exactly why unbleached, unbromated flours are always recommended for hearth breads.

                          I would highly recommend that you let milled flour age for at least a week; two would be better. Some "natural" bakers insist on using green flour, because they say it's more nutritious. Frankly, I think that's bunkum. In any case, maybe try green and aged flour, then compare results.

                          Jim

                            Hi Jim,

                            Thanks for the info. I did read something about that in "The Bread builder's" book. Ive been using my brick oven for about 2 yrs now and figured the only thing that I can improve is the quality of flour at this point. And maybe my techniques.
