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.

  • Buried Postings

    As our community gets larger and we have more postings, we are seeing more cases where a posting gets made, and then a new one is put on top of it before a lot of people see it on the main forum page. That doesn't mean it's gone, but you need to look harder to find it.

    If you click on New Posts, you will see all of the recent postings, even if they are not on the top of the queue in their respective forum. That way you won't miss anything.

    If you made a posting that got buried, and you don't think it is getting the attention it deserves -- you can put it back on top of the pile by adding new information to if. For example, you can say -- "does anyone have a recommendation what to do about this", so something like that. A new posting will put a thread back on top.

    If your posting does have something put on top of it, don't be offended. We are all working with limited real estate -- and I think these modern Forum systems do a good job of letting everyone keep track of what they think is important.

    Hope this is helpful.
