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 posted photos of a handful of finished ovens today. Take a look.

    Help! I took a couple of pictures of the start of my oven stand and I tried to post them but the message said that the file was too big. How do I take pictures that fit (smaller kb's) or shrink the pictures on my computer to fit the posting? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

      Hi James,
      One has to register to see the photos in the PhotoPlog Section?
      I posted a link to the PhotoPlog Section in another From for Foodservice Professionals, thinking it was way for some people in my business to be turned on to brick ovens.
      Do you think Registering so you can view photos is necessary?

        Oventhusiast,

        I had exactly the same problem at first. Right now, I'm using Microsoft Digital Image Editor to reduce the size of photos so they will fit in the gallery. There are many other members here much more adept at this than I am, but I believe that James has set the limit at around 1250 pixels wide x 768 pixels high. Probably any digital photograph software will allow you to do this. I don't bother changing the size on my camera, just waiting till I put them on the computer, and then resizing.

          Thanks Much, Jim!
          I'll give it a try!
          I hope to document this oven build as it happens to avoid mistakes in my project and also, help others with their ovens!

            Im on a Mac and was unsure how to get the files down to a reasonable size for import, but this worked- Go to iphoto library, select photo, scroll down file menu to export, change file name/size and export file to desktop. Then Select and upload. It worked for me even though I am a bit computer challenged.

              On a Mac drag photo icon onto desktop click on photo, look under top menu , for Tools , then go to Adjust Size.. it's so easy even I , a hammer and chisel guy can manage

                I am not sure if I am doing something wrong. For some reason, when I go to the photo galley now, I don't see the actual photos but instead the info page on the photos. Is there a setting I am missing or something? I feel like I used to be able to see them.

                Update- it is working again. Must have been a weird computer glitch.

                  If you are using Microsoft Windows open your Image with Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Select "edit pictures" from the task bar then select compress pictures from the task pane on the right then select E-mail messages then save changes and exit. You will have your image resised
                  Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
                  I forgot who said that.

                    Hi James,
                    I kept a blog of the construction of my oven. Can I post a link to it here?
                    Thanks
