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.

  • Guatemala pizza ovens and stoves

    I just returned from a 5 week long project in San Marcos la laguna, on Lake Atitlan, in Guatemala.
    We had 20+ volunteers there part of the time building masonry cook stoves for about 50 local Maya families that were still cooking over open fires.
    In between the two different groups that were building cookstoves, we also built an outdoor bread and pizza oven for Paco Real, the hotel/restaurant where we all stayed in San Marcos, in exchange for my room there for a month. He bought the materials for the oven, and is setting it up with a large roof also covering a work area now.
    We also built a smaller lakeside pizza oven for author Joyce Maynard, who offered up her home and new pizza oven for our annual fiesta.
    One of our volunteers posted some pics of the party on his "Breadhunters" website/blog.
    Bread For All
    Or go there thru www.breadhunter.com
    Click on "Guatemala ovens" while you are there.

    For those of you who have never been to Guatemala, your missing an incredible experience.
    Spectacular Lake Atitlan is surrounded with small villages tucked alongside multiple volcanoes amd mountains, inhabited with wonderfull people.

    This was MOM's 9th annual stove building mission to Guatemala.
    Beside all the good stuff, it beats staying in Maine all winter.
