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.

    And just how many Americans under 40 ran to their dictionary (oh wait punched in on their computer) to find the meaning of Habidashery?

    Put that up there with bumbershoot

    JE,

    My hat's off to you! I stayed in Oxford for two summers quite a few years ago now. On Turl Street there was a shop run by two elderly gentlemen, brothers I believe. One of them made men's shoes, only to order and only after an interview for a foot measurement and to see if you were the proper sort. The other made split cane fly rods, only to order and only after an interview, etc., etc. On London's New Oxford Street, there's a shop that's been in business since the dawn of time making only bumbershoots and walking canes. You can buy a cane with a built in flask (they don't do swords any more) and a huge umbrella made from whatever exotic materials your credit card limit allows. Interview mandatory. The haberdashers are mainly on Jermyn Street.

      Neill has provided us with our next word for the lexicon.

      In the early 90's My parents decided to spend a bit of their kids inheritance. They invited the children to join them in spending their inheritance. All we had to do was pay airfare and they would pick up the rest. I was the only one of four that took them up on their offer. In my book I went with my parents to spend my sister's inheritance. 2.5 weeks in the Land of Oz and 2.5 weeks in Aotearoa. Down in Dunedin on the Bushy Ranch I got my fill of fresh lamb!

      Back to Neill's Auz Slang. Today's word is - tucker, an Australian word for food in general

        Very good Patrick. Thanks. Isn't learning new words supposed to help fend off senility.
