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.

    Does anyone know where I can buy the "Indispensable tool" apparently Forno Bravo does not sell it.

    New to the forum. What are tags and Trackbacks?

    The tool is something you make. Search Indispensable tool and you will see many different types and methods of making it. I passed mine on to another builder. Somebody may have one they are done with.

      I've been on the forum from within months of the beginning, and I don't know what tags and trackbacks are. Let us know when you find out.

      As far as the indispensable tool, or searching the forum in general, google is often better and more thorough than the forum search tool.

      An example:

        I'm certainly no expert on this but:

        Websites and blogs are designed and written in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) which is like a set of codes which provide a means to create structured documents. There are dozens of tags, but one of them, which you may recognize, is a FONT tag, which is merely an instruction whereby the user can define the appearance of text such as:

        <FONT Size=_ or - Number between 1 - 7>

        In this example the tag is the text contained within the brackets.

        Trackback itself is a framework for peer-to-peer communication between weblogs. Among other things, it can track cross-weblog discussions and can provide remote content access.

        A big part (at least for me anyway) of the allure and value of this site is one's ability to quickly search and reference a topic (with images!) such as flue design or refractory mortar recipes. Trackback allows the navigation and access to all the information contained on the FB site that James so wonderfully administrates.

          Welcome Michelle!
          If you're a bit handy the tool is an easy one to make. Look through http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...idea-2573.html

          You'll find the plans and parts that you'll need to get going with the I.T. Also know that most around here will be happy to respond to a private message.
