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.

  • Alpaca shearing

    To all our aussie WFO owners...I have a nephew who is an Alpaca shearer and he is interested in coming to Australia to do some shearing work during his off season here in the US. If you know of anyone who owns Alpaca or might have more information please let me know through the forum or ask them to check out his websiteShearing Alpacas, Biosecure Alpaca Shearing, Alpaca Shearer. and they can contact him directly. Thanks in advance for any assistance!
    All the best!

    Dutch,

    Don't you shear them like sheep? Our brothers down under are really good with sheep. My opinion is totally based on movies I have seen.

      Hi Dutch,
      My brother now lives over there with you lot (in the USA) and was the Australian Alpaca Association President for over 10 years.
      He is now one of the world authorities and is trying to organise the US industry and travels/tours/lectures through out South America, the US and Europe. You should send him an email: ian@alpacahandbook.com
      to get some contacts or suggestions. Maybe there can be an advertisement placed on their web page or in their newsletter which goes out to all their members.
      Give him a call.

        Thanks Neill,
        I have passed the information along and hopefully it will work out nicely. I just new a forum like we have would bring about some positive results.

        Les,
        Stop being such a smart alec ...he's pretty good with sheep too...although I don't think he's been in any movies
        All the best!

          Hey Dutch, its a while back by now... but what do they do with all the fluff? I'd love to get my hands on some alpaca fleece.
