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.

  • Kleftico

    Have to say my favourite dish so far is not the countless beer can chickens, but a Cypriot dish called Kleftico, slow baked lamb cooked for four hours at 400 degrees celsius, the smell coming out of the oven is amazing & the finished product just melts in yor mouth

    Made from lamb forequarter, whole garlic cloves, lemon juice, fresh rosemary, fresh oregano, salt & pepper, a little water

    Awesome...

    "cooked for four hours at 400 degrees celsius,"

    Wow that's really giving it some serious cooking and the potatoes aren't even brown. Something wrong there.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        If I kept that dish in my oven at those temps for that length of time I would be looking at black coals on the baking sheet.

            No seriously, that's how it is done, it dates back to when sheep were stolen and placed in underground ovens for cooking by the robbers

            My oven thermometer is not broken, nor my infrared thermometer, work perefctly

            Check it out & give it a crack, you wont be disappointed...

              I agree with other posters, 400C and slow cooking don't seem to go together. Maybe things cook differently on the other side of the equator, but if I tried that I'd have a pan of charcoal. Even 4 hours at 400F in an uncovered pan is going to give me something chewier than shoe leather.

              Are you starting it at 400C and letting it cool down? And did you cover it? Had to look up a recipe and that's what this one suggests

                Good point DJ, maybe THX has an oven that is un insulated and door off. Mine would be near 400C for the entire cook.

                THX, What is your oven temp at the end of the 4 hour cook?

                  Re: Kleftico

                  My oven is fully insulated over & above standard recommendations above & below, temp at end of cooking is just unde 400 degrees celsius

                  Please note the food is covered, sealed & cooks in its own juices, it does not burn as you think, this is the way it has been done for donkey's years. It can be done in conventional ovens at lower temps but clay ovens or wood fired pizza ovens give the best result using retained heat cooking

                  Do some research and see how it is done, there are many You Tube examples

                  The best recipe & video is from Australia's Food Safari TV show on SBS

                  Regards,

                  Phil

                      Hey DJ maybe something in your equator commentThis side of the equator the water in sinks travels clockwise. Apparently on your side of the equator it goes the other way.

                      Maybe its the water and the lid creates a steaming environment. But I do agree very hot and very long cooking time and small pieces of meat to boot. It should be black.

                        Guys I found the recipe THX refers and he is spot on. Here is the link and its cooked in a wfo

                        Slow-cooked oven-baked lamb recipe (kleftiko) : Food Safari : SBS Food) think this is the same as DJ link.

                            Hey Phil

                            I thought it was lamb

                            But if cooking it like that turns it to gold then i'm off to the butchers. See Ya...........
