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.

    Baguette Videos

    James,

    The dough shown here will be described in the upcoming bread baking section, but I thought to anticipate a few questions here. This is a lean French bread dough made with pate fermentee, so it shapes easily and well. It's important to use the dough cutter like a pincer, not a saw, so the dough is not deflated. The cut pieces are turned over and a sort of valley made down the center, so that when the two edges are pinched together the tops of the loaves have sufficient surface tension for a proper rise. The floured cloth is called a couche, and the folds form walls so the dough rises upwards, rather than spreads outwards. The finished baguette are shown, among other breads, in the Bake Day picture in the Gallery.

    Working on the sound issue, guys, honest.

        Nick, you can send them to me (james@fornobravo.com). Thanks!

        I think Jim and I have a digital camcorder (with mic) on our Xmas list, which will get us back into the talkies.

          One more thing

          Voiceover aside, don't you think Jim's videos are just great? I am learning just as I publish them. Excellent.
          Thanks Jim!

            Thanks to both of you for providing these instrcutional videos. May be enough for me to go out and get a spiral mixer.

              All,

              Thanks for the comments. I'm touched, and I mean that. I'll keep them coming if they're helpful, and it seems they are. Just want to get the quality up, but, for me, a still camera guy, the learning curve is somewhat steep. I'd be more than pleased to field questions about these silent versions. Next up will be forming rolls, though the surface tension mantra remains the same.

              Perhaps there might be some requests for specific and problematic techniques? I could try to address those if the need arises.

              Actually, this is fun for me. I really like the hands on part, mortar to dough.

              Jim

                Mixing wet dough by hand

                How about something on mixing wet dough by hand. What's the best way to keep it from sticking, without adding too much flour back into the dough -- where it gets too stiff?

                  James,

                  Missed this post from you. I'll add a mixing wet dough video to the list. Have you seen the general intro piece Wendy and I made? Not sure about the sound quality, but maybe it can be bumped or cleaned or something by somebody like Nick.

                    LOL,
                    After editing the cookbook, I can't see anything. My eyes are swimming around.

                    The last video I rec'd from you was peels.zip on 2/18. Is there a new video I have missed?

                    btw -- your technique on mixing wet dough in the bowl before kneading was perfect.

                      James,

                      Yep, there's one gone astray. Title: "Wendy's Work." Ahem, Wendy was the camerapersonhood on it, hence the title. It's a short intro, welcome piece for the bread book. I sent it via Pando. The program says it was sent but not downloaded on your end. I'll send it again if there's a glitch.

                        Don't you hate the way computers keep track of everything, so everyone knows who sent it, and who forgot to download it?
