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.

    Is it possible to increase the space for private messages?

    My inbox is full, but I like to keep old messages.

    And I'm not against paying for extra space.

    How bout it James?

    What are your thoughts on it?

    Thanks

    Dave

    Re: Private messages

    I find that I have to weed out some of the old ones as well. Hey Dave, maybe we need to quit messaging each other!

        Your right you know!

        Just tried to send you a private message, to help clutter you inbox up a bit more... but it won't go through

            Hey Dave,

            I just doubled the limit on Private Messages to 100. Do you think that will do it?

              How hard would it be to enable us to save it to our drives? Another solution would be for us to email it to our personal email address. Both would save you server space (not that it would emount to squat compared to the photos)

                Thanks James!

                That should be plenty.

                    Um, fellas, ya do know you can already download them to your computer, right? Name:  4638393961b84707b7a05cd8db9bc91d.gif

                    Okay, kidding aside, here's how it's done:

                    1) Go to your private messages

                    2) Scroll down to the bottom of the page

                    3) Select the little bar on the right hand side. It will give you a menu. This is what it looks like:

                    4) Select "Download as Text" (unless you're geek enough to want one of the other options - in which case you probably don't need me to explain this and are just reading this to laugh at me... )

                    5) A box will pop up asking what program you want to open the thing. Select MS Word or whatever WP you have. Trust me on this - it's a pain to read in Notepad which is the default so you really want to make sure it opens in the word processor.

                    6) It'll open the file - all you gotta do then is save it.

                      I'm not seeing it. I can save all my private messages, but I don't think that was the issue. Have you tried this? If I highlight a file I want to save the option goes away. James?????

                        ?

                        Are you trying to save individual messages? I thought you were trying to download to your hard drive?

                            I'm late to the party on this one.

                            Your FB Forum account now saves 100 Private Messages on our server, and let's you either keep them there until you hit 100, or delete them when you want.

                            Alternatively, you can also download them to your computer. When you hit your 100 message limit, you can save them on your computer (you won't lose them that way) and still free up space on your FB Forum account.

                            Phew.
