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.

  • Faster Server

    We were down for a couple of minutes this afternoon, as we moved FB.com to a faster server. Sorry for the disruption, but I think we will see much better response times -- which is a good thing.

    Regards,

    Onya James. I've found it nigh-on impossible to down-load videos, but will try again. (Have learnt so much on this site - and the journey has barely begun).
    Regards,
    Jeff.

          Cool!

          So far the site was often rather slow in the mornings, but ok at night (no idea why, could also be due to something else entirely). But in any case its fine this morning - I spent a long time here today, just to make sure...

            dude it don't really matter how zippy your server is if the dish that is used to by me is only a saucer holder (Dial -up) ;-0

              Jengineer,
              This is a serious, non-nationalistic post.
              So you're still on dial-up? Strewth, I thought Australia was supposed to be the pits re internet service. I guess I'm lucky, in that we live in the scrub, but our Provider has a relay maybe two miles (I defer to Imperial, dmun) away. Still pretty RS, but better than the earlier setup.
              Don't ask me about speeds, eh: ever the Luddite.
              Jeff.

                well actually for Christmas I have spun up. My dial up was $10 a month and being the frugal engineer that I am I could not justify $14 or more a month for "fast" service. By the way from what I can tell even our fast service is slow compared to european countries. Well the wife ws getting tired of waiting and using the accelerator which loads up a degraded image rather than the full image of pictures and said get more speed. For what i do in the net at home I really don't see that much of a difference. Oh yeah maybe it is due to using a PC that is 7 years old - at least I got rid of Windows ME.
