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.

  • What is this?

    I ran accross this at a garden store in Sedona. At first I thought it was a fireplace but it has some sort of grill in it. Any clues??

    Les,

    Umm, let's see. I've got it: mature pet rock. Am I close ?

        Both great guesses - but I am still at a loss. If it is a grill, it looks like a pain in the ass to use. That's probably why there was only one and it's still for sale.

          maybe a crude attempt at a Tuscan grill? Or it could just be the pet rock, wearing a 'stovepipe' hat.

            It's a grill. Works awsome. I was invited a couple of friends houses in Tuscany & thats how they barbeued. Start a fire behind the grill plate & drag the hot embers forward as you need more heat. An ash pan in front collects the spent embers.

              I thought those tended to be open on the top, or at most had a hood -- rather than a tight dome. Very interesting.

              Here is a commercial Tuscan grill, where they have a cast iron grate it the back to hold the wood fire, and as Balty says -- they pull the coals forward. It shows wear and tear, but you get the idea.

              I am thinking of building something like that. We could move this thread into the Grill category. :-)

                I would think that tight dome would be a hindrance to cooking - of course most of us (including me) manipulate the food far too much on an open grill anyway. My burgers have mad a quantum leap forward in taste since I started following the "touch-it-only-twice" rule (once to flip and once to remove).

                Still that thing looks too low for getting at the food and too open to act as a heat reflector. Curious.

                  If you build it, they will buy it!

                  There are a lot of consumers out there!!

                    If they build it, I will probably buy it!
                    Over the years I seem to have accrued a great assortment of outdoor cooking devices and barbecues. Stashed in the garden shed somewhere is a little foldaway grill I once bought called the "Ecology Barbecue" which used just scrunched up balls of newspaper.
                    It worked on the principle of falling fat from the food kept the paper burning. As you cooked you just kept adding balls of paper occasionally. It worked quite well, especially with things like sausages and lamb chops.
                    Every time I used it at a picnic friends would be amazed at how well and quickly it would work.
                    I must see if it is still in the shed.
                    Cheers

                      I'm going to try my solar oven sometime soon. It's a silver car visor that you make into a cone and shove in a bucket. Add grill, put food in pot and pot in bag and bag on grill then shove the whole thing in the sun and wait a few hours.
