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.

  • Video on roasting chicken

    i've posted a couple of 1 minute videos which show the chickens we have roasted and the oven lit up by the rope light in the front of the oven. (the*guests were lit as well).**our second attempt was vastly superior to the first. my roasting observations*so far*are as follows:

    1. we bought one of those*thingees that goes up the chicken's butt at home depot. highly recommended.

    2. use a pan underneath with the lowest sides you can find. the second chicken we did was in the shallower pan and came out much more nicely browned.

    3. do not surround the chicken with veggies. i think it cuts down on the browning and its hard to time the veggies and the chicken to be done at the same time.*

    4. get the oven "pizza hot" and then let it come back down a bit before putting the chicken in. don't let the oven get too cool though ( i would estimate ours was at 500 F; all the soot had burned off and the heat was the "shimmering" kind). [disclaimer: i don't have my insulation on yet. i'll probably have to relearn everything again in one month].

    5. tent a piece of tin foil over the chicken for the first 20 minutes. then take the foil off and turn the chicken as required to get a nice browning.*(keep checking every 5 minutes).*our second chicken was in for perhaps 1 hour and it could have been left in for another 15 minutes with no loss in quality.*(it was a big chicken). *it was very moist and tender.
