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.

    I sometimes don't like the appearance of my bread crust (both hearth and pan breads) and was thinking or trying "Quick Shine spray" to help ensure that the crust looks shiny rather than dull.

    Quick Shine Enhanced Spray 16oz.. Item:7097. Misc. Baking Ingredients from Surfas.
    Quick Shine Spray 16oz.. Item:7094. Misc. Baking Ingredients from Surfas.

    I've tried brushing on egg white and cream, as well as spritzing water, but have been thinking of an easier and (maybe) more reliable solution

    Does anyone have experience or comments on these types of products?

    We have not used them but...I see no reason why not...we bake a good many loaves at a bake and therefore don't have issues that can be present when baking smaller amounts...it would definitely make it easier to get seeds to stick quick
    Let us know how you like it!

      I've been using this product now for a few months. Unfortunately I'm not able to bake as often as I'd like to. The "active ingredient" are milk solids so it sprays on white and gives the product a nice brown and glossy look. No noticable flavor is associated with the spray. It is a lot easier than other kinds of washes... except maybe a brushing of cream, which is quite easy.

      I wouldn't think it is all that useful on hearth breads but it does a nice job on pan breads and sweet breads, like this morning's hot-cross buns.
