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.

    If you have never tried Fat Tire, give it a go.

    It is one of my favorites.


    1 more 1 more! While I was in Seattle we had the Alaskan Amber, it is very nice as well.

    Do they provide a shuttle bus, or does everyone just crawl home!

      Hi Dave,
      Fat Tire counts as a local beer here, brewed up in Fort Collins CO.

      I will give that Alaskan Amber a try...

      Personally, I am taking the train (light rail) down and back...

        Being in West Texas, we consider beer from Colorado as fine imports! Especially Fat Tire.

        And since your are not driving, you might try all of them!

          Re: Great American Beer Festival

          Sounds like a good way to try a few beers.

          I was in Denver 10yrs ago and a local took me to Wynkoop....beer was good and so was the food ....I wonder what its like nowadays?
          Cheers

            Yeah Coors light or Bud light! Sorry guys, I tried all those local brews and fancy brews growing up. I knew Sam Adams when he was just 'little Sammy' ! They're all fine if you like the heavier brews or beers made with honey, raspberry, blueberry, corn, eye of newt, seaweed, hay or whatever. Personally I've gone full circle back to good ole' 'construction sodas' (mass produced American light beers)!!!! Anyways, Enjoy the beer fest! It's all a matter of taste and a fun time for all!
            Best to all,

              Hey Bacterium,
              Here in Denver we like the Wynkoop so much that the owner is now the mayor...really!!
              That place is going strong. Open fermentation and traditional ales.

              Oventhusiast, you know what they say about coors light and bud light?

              They are like making love in a canoe...
              (or fu@&ing close to water...)

                Drake,

                You and Eric Idle (Hollywood Bowl, I think) couldn't have said it better.

                    Re: Great American Beer Festival

                    Yeah I liked Wynkoop......I like the owner/mayor thing. I had a Wynkoop t-shirt I bought and wore it for years(between washes of course). Some Aussies used to have a perception that American beer was week as water (we say weak as pi$$)....however my Denver mate had me soon educated.

                    I suppose its a bit like Fosters - most here nowadays think its below average - yet internationally people sees it as something very Australian (which it kinda still is). However its not until you get to the micro brew stuff where you find some truly interesting beers.

                    Commercially for Oz beers you can't go past some of the Tasmanian stuff - brands like Cascade and James Boag.
