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.

    Wow, very nice. One day I would like to tackle croissants. I tried them once, they didn't turn out so well.

    Are yours sourdough?

        No these are not sourdough. This is just a basic dough. This comes from the book Advanced Bread and Pastry by Suas. He has other formulas some with preferments and I think a sourdough. I plan to just take them in order and give them all a try. This batch had 8# of dough and 2# of butter. So today I'm the croissant fairy giving them away to friends and family.

            Faith,

            Those croissants remind me of a little bakery I would frequent in Montmare, Paris, France everymorning. Nicely done.

              Nice! I like the inner structure of the croissants.

                Thanks everyone for the nice complements. This is by far my best set of croissants. There seams to be many different ways to do them with many different formulas. So once this set has been "dispatched" I'm looking forward to playing with some of the others that I have my eye on.

                Thanks again, Faith

                  Great product. Have you ever attempted pretzels ?

                    Re: Croissants

                    Pretzels have been on my to-do-list apparently for a long time. I just noticed I bought Sodium Hydroxide - Food NAOH-8-FOOD_GRADE for pretzels last April.

                    Where does the time go? Looks like Pretzels just got bumped up on that list.

                      Hey Faith,

                      Very nice! What temp did you bake those at?

                        390F ish. Perfect for working on the declining temp after sourdoughs.

                          Thanks. I forgot to ask if you put the directly on the hearth, or if you used a pan.

                            Aaron, No I used a sheet pan with parchment paper. When the croissants are fully proofed they kind of jiggle as if the were made of jello. So best to leave on the pan.
