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.

  • Do we need a section of Photos?

    As the number of ovens being built goes up, I am starting to wonder if everyone is happy posting photos inside the Forum sections where they are appropriate, or whether we should add a Forum section called Photos -- just for photos.

    Does everyone think there are enough photos on the Forum and they are easy enough to find -- or should we try to make it better?

    James,
    I think a seperate section of photos would be a better idea. Perhaps each photo can reference its specific area in the forum. I will be taking more photos of my own as I progress.

      I Second that sentiment.I have constantly been going to other sites etc. for photo's /info.If it were all in one place it would be a tremendous help to users and also an improvement to your site James IMO.
