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.

  • Perforated pan use

    Has anyone ever used a pan like the one in the attached picture? They have them advertised in the King Arthur Flour "The Baker's Catalogue" but no instructions in the catalogue. Nice enough catalogue but definitely for the high end baker or baker wantabe with deep pockets. Obviously I didn't get mine from them (I picked it up at a thrift store for next to nothing) so if any instructions come with their pans I don't have them.

    So does one do the final raise in a couch and move the risen dough to the pan? Or final raise in/on the pan? Does one spray the pan with non-stick or dust with flour? Any insight welcomed :-)

    Thanks in advance,
    Wiley

    Re: Perforated pan use

    Hi Wiley!

    That looks like an Italian bread pan - the distance across the sections will be about 4 inches if that is right. I think a linen couch works as well as anything. Only problem is getting the loaf from the couch to the peel without overly deflating or mussing the loaf.

    Pans like these are used in all sorts of ways and the best answer seems to be a function of your dough and oven. Sourdoughs sometimes have a habit of seeping into the pores and gluing themselves to the pan. (Neat trick but not nice!) They seem to work better with conventional, less sticky/soft, lower BP, faster rising doughs. I think spraying them with Pam is a big help to keeping things from sticking. (I don't use them a lot for I don't make a lot of baguettes and when I do I often just use the couch and peel so... It all depends on my mood!)

    Hopefully someone with more experience will respond!
    Jay

      I use something like this as a couche for proofing then flip it out onto a peel and bake on the hearth...
