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.

  • Rye vs Wheat Starter

    Greetings!

    I have a question, what is difference between wheat and rye starter?
    I am going to try to bake few all wheat loafs using formula posted in http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f11/...nic-18962.html
    I was wondering, If I can use Rye Starter?
    If not what is best practice to develop all wheat starter?

    Thanks in advance

    I only have a single starter so I can't comment with certainty, but I'd think you can. I'd separate some of the rye starter out and start feeding it twice a day with what is going to be in the bread that you intend to bake. I'd start acclimatizing it to what you want it to feed on.

      Re: Rye vs Wheat Starter

      I have started sourdough from wheat to begin with. It also works, rye just seems to be easier to start where wheat is harder. I always get my wheat from the local mill and always had the idea that the cultures that create the yeast are more found into those (so it is easier to start) than you can find them in wheat (or anything) you buy in the supermarket.

      As Chris suggests, I would also start with feeding my rye starter with wheat so it can get used to it and then use that. No need to make a second starter is my idea.

        I have all three starters White, W/W, Rye. You can get away with just one. I have three because I like that they are accumulated to the flour type. I have been told that if you keep a W/W starter that does not get that week in the fridge and gets freshened every day will go rancid. I feed mine once a week and it lives in the fridge so all is well.

        Hamelman said he only used a rye starter if I remember that correctly. So I think Rye starter could be the starter of choice.

        Hope that helps.
