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.

  • Add "Location"

    I have changed the Forum to make "Location" required. Let's see how it goes. It is helpful knowing "generally" where everyone is located, without impinging on anyone's privacy or making registration a hassle.

    Send me any comments.

    I knew it would happen James - Someone listed their loacation as USA. Might as well typed "planet earth"

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      Too funny. Well, I guess we are a community and every community has a few shades of grey. On the whole, I was conerned about new members wanting to register if there were too many boxes to fill in, so I think we are OK on that front.

      Here's to shades of grey.
