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.

  • No Knead Bread? Sure I do. No need burnt bread!

    Wow! I made my first WFO bread last night and was it good! Flavor that is, the bake was less than stellar though. I made the No Knead Bread recipe in the eBook, following the directions to a T. Well until it came to bake it. My wife was handling the other part of the meal and all I had to do was bake. I got anxious, underestimated the heat in the oven and the result was some pretty dark bread.

    My hearth is unusually deep and makes placing a Dutch Oven into the oven difficult unless it's just inside the oven. Let me clarify, the deep hearth makes retrieving the Dutch Oven very difficult if placed too far in! I waited for the floor just inside the oven to cool to the recommended 550. Too bad the rest of the floor was 650!

    When I removed the lid after 30 minutes of baking I realized there was no way I could continue the remaining 15 bake, especially uncovered as detailed in the recipe.

    I retreated to my house, ready to face my wife's disappointment. Fortunately for me she actually likes slightly burned food! We let it cool (some) and sliced it open! I was expecting it would not be fully baked but was surprised to see that was not the case. The taste was fantastic!

    After this first attempt I see just how well we need to know the heating and cooling characteristics of our ovens. Syncing the proofing bread with cooling your oven from higher temps will take some experience!

    Looks good Stuart!

    I think the no knead recipe is really not a WFO recipe, it is more for the regular oven. I don't know what you gain by baking that in a WFO...

      Thanks Drake.

      When you think about it that makes sense. My wife was puzzled when I put the bread in the Dutch Oven, asking "Is that how you are supposed to cook in the oven?"

      Tonight after making pizza I'll be doing a batch of pretzels, sans Dutch oven of course!
