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.

    Is James the only one who gets to use an avatar (that pic next to his signature)? I go to user CP/edit avatar, but I can't see any way to upload an image.

    I've always thought Avatars were fun. If you go to User CP, then click on edit Avatar, there is an "upload from computer" button. I remember that the image had to be pretty small, so I cut it down a couple times before it fit.

    Can't wait to see it.

          You need to turn the Avatar option on for the forum and the "custom Avatar" one on as well in order for people to upload their own. It's got to be 100x100 pixels or smaller.

            Try it now

            Deeeeeep in the inner working of vBulletin, there is a configuration panel that I just set to enable custom Avators. It's interesting to note that the fastest way to learn where the panel is located was to make a posting in the vBulletin Forum. Sounds familar. It should work now, so let me know.

            I am looking forward to seeing a wonderful display of tiny pizza oven signature lines.
