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.

  • Address people in our reply?

    I have subscribed to some of the threads that I am interested and consequently I receive an email every time that post is updated. This is a very good feature of this forum as allows you right away to be updated without going to the forum all the times....
    I have noticed that sometimes the replies are very short/telegraphic...i.e.
    ....the rebar was 6ft long.....or....yes I did it what you suggested and worked....etc.
    In these cases the email features becomes useless because, unless you are the person who provided that suggestion, you do not know what are they talking about, so then you need to go to the forum check the sequence of the replies and read back all the dialog to figure it out....
    My suggestion is that in case we are not replying to the forum but we are answering/asking a specific person, we should address the replay with the name of that person first so everybody know right away who this msg is addressed to. i.e
    ....John I did not understand how you cut the rebar....instead of..
    ...........I did not understand how you cut the rebar
    Make sense? Thanks ciao Carlo
    Ciao Carlo

    Carlo,

    Good suggestions. I also like to use the QUOTE feature so the reply can be seen in context. To keep messages from getting really long, it's easy to edit the QUOTE so only the pertinent information is reprinted.

      I use the RSS feed feature in Opera and Mozilla browsers. I get a short intro and a url at the bottom to take me right to the thread. Most valuable tool.
