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.
The Japanese in our little village were kept really busy clearing snow. They are often on the top of their roofs shovelling it off. They never seem to have accidents falling off apparently. We had about 1.5 m fall in the ten days we were there.
David lives in the tropics, we rarely get snow in Oz in summer, unless you live in the southern part and even then its really rare.
Actually Al, as a skiing enthusiast I can recall a few occasions when there has been snow on the Aus Alps at Christmas time. Heavy thunderstorms are common around Christmas and hay harvesting was always problematic because of the strong chance of rain spoiling hay bales. I think that is one of the reasons most hay is now harvested in giant circular things which shed water better.
There's no chance of snow here!
GF It was part of a strategy to escape the oppressive tropical heat here for a couple of weeks.
Some people regard NZ as part of Australia, but officially not yet. We get snow on the Australian Alps, but anyone who is a skiing enthusiast discovers that Australian snow is inferior, lift tickets exorbitant, accomodation and food both expensive. It is cheaper to go to NZ or Japan.
Overrated ??? you've got to be kidding!
Check these out, absolutely magnificent!!
The snow monkeys were about 45 mins away from our village. They laze about in these hot springs for ages during winter, not at all bothered by inquisitive humans.
