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.

  • Roast beef straight on brick?

    Heya fellow WFOistas!

    A book I read has a roast beef recipe thah calls for tossing the cut directly on the hearth. This sounds intriguing as I can envision the heat blast searing the bottom creating a cruncy crust. At the same time, I'm concerend about the bricks sucking the moisture out of the poor creature. I thought I'll check if anyone has tried this before, lest I destroy an expensive cut..,

    Thanks!

    I wouldnt want to roast it directly on the hearth because I want that good juice that the beef gives off when it cooks.

      I don't think that would work with a roast, because you need lower temperatures... A "dirty steak" could go right on the floor or the coals at a high temperature for a short time, but a roast? What temperature does your recipe call for?

      We had roast beef from the WFO the other day and this is how I did it: Take the roast out of the fridge an hour in advance to get it to room temperature. Sear in a hot pan with some oil for five minutes to get a nice crust on all sides. Then place it in a preheated dish in your WFO at 80C (or 176F) for two hours. You can serve it right away without any resting time.

      Dunno if this helps, but it was without doubt the best roast I've ever cooked!

        I've done this with a pork roast, just sitting on a piece of aluminum foil on the floor: nobody wants to make gravy with pork, and who wants to clean a greasy roaster? With roasts where I want gravy, I use a pan.

        As Frances points out, this is retained heat roasting. I like a pink roast as much as anyone, but pizza temperatures would produce a cold, raw interior
