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.
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.
