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.

  • Finding Older Threads

    I have had a couple of questions recently on how to find older threads or postings, and wanted to add something on that.

    All postings are held permanently in the Forum, with newer postings put on top of the pile, pushing older postings down in the queue. When a thread has a new posting, it rises back to the top of the queue. You can find an older posting three ways:

    1. If you have suscribed to the thread, go to User CP, and it will show all of your subscribed threads.

    2. You can click on the name of the forum where the thread and posting were made, and scroll down through all of the threads to find it.

    3. You can search the Forum for terms.

    Also, I try to make important postings sticky, so that they are always at the top of the Forum section (like this one).

    If you have any other tricks for how you track the postings that are important to you, let us know.
