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.

  • I like BIG JUGS!

    I must admit that I really like big jugs....

    ....all sizes are nice but I think the big ones really are the best.

    .....a few nice ones there, but the best ones are here!

    .....over the years I've seen all kinds of nice jugs.

    .... newer ones, and the older ones

    ..... all sorts of nice shapes

    .... few topless ones

    .....more bottomless

    ....some painted

    ....decorated

    ...priceless!





    Can you imagine getting your hands on some of these!

    ....but these two BIG ONES are the favorites!

    who says you have to have a matched pair?

    (The topless and bottomless ones are a couple of thousand years old too and still holding what's left of their shape....)

      Re: I like BIG JUGS!

      Jim, those are pots. Or amphora maybe. Even in American English, I checked Wikipedia:

      A jug is a type of container for liquid. It has an opening, often narrow, from which to pour or drink, and nearly always has some kind of handle. One could imagine a jug being made from nearly any watertight material, but most jugs throughout history have been made from clay, glass, or plastic. Some Native American and other tribes created liquid holding vessels by making woven baskets lined with an asphaltum sealer.

      In American English usage, a jug is a large container with a narrow mouth and handle for liquids.



      Now THESE are jugs...

          They were too big for hand luggage.

                Frances, these jugs are not just pots!

                In the flea market (Rastro), they call them Jarras. (jars?)

                Big ones like my favorites are called Tinacas (vats)

                Amphora (the top of one pictured) were used for storing all kinds of things. The amphorae top pictured is maybe 2000 years old or more?.... (Greek, Roman, Phoenecian?) was found by my brother diving in the Med.

                When I bought my last three, the old man at the bodega just shrugged his shoulders when I asked what they were used for...he just said they were from the old factory and used for whatever was put in them.

                Olive oil?
                Wines?
                Pickles?
                Salted fish?
                Olives?
                Vinegar?
                Grains?
                Whitewash
                anything basically....

                Here are a couple of links to a great restaurant with very nice jugs! Click on Illustrations and then Gastronomy

                Note this first picture, you get to eat with a bunch of great vats (tinacas) used to store wines....the chalk marks covered the wine and vintage info!

                might be our favorite restaurant in Spain....

                  Les, it's hard to say. The topless and bottomless ones in the second post are likely about 2000 years old. The topless ones were from the Castle in Sagunto where it was apparently a wharehouse. The bottomless amphorae top came up from the bottom of mediterranean 20 years ago.

                  The others are from commercial operations. Not too long ago Spain was much more antiquated and these types of vessels were common and used for a variety of purposes. Some I bought still had oil in them. The last three had holes in the bottom side for drainage, one with a brass tap. They came from a bodega (wine store) but I'm not sure what use. They were black with dust from storage but cleaned up well.

                  Could be 20 years, could be 2 to 300. (check out the website for Meson del Vinos...gives a pretty good idea of old Spain)

                      Jim,

                      I was referring to JE's jugs - I don't think people were riding Harley's 2000 years ago (but you have nice jugs as well)

                        Sorry, I have to ask.... would that be that from a warehouse or a whorehouse?

                        Anyway, old saggy topless bottemless or whatever, Jim your jugs are pretty cool!

                            George, I thought I missed something, had to go back and check - Frances definitely showed us her JUGS. The scary thing (not her jugs) is that the post number was 666
