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.

  • Save your messages BEFORE you lose them!

    (M) I have started to reply to several messages and then had to leave that composition window to re-read another message or check spelling only to find my message was no longer there when I returned.

    (M) If you are writing more than a one liner, consider Copy-Pasting your message to your regular email or a word processing program before you move to any other window so if you lose it you can always Copy-Paste it back if necessary. This seems to be a failing of many forums so it may come with the territory.

    Ciao,

    message errors

    This may be a good idea, if only to have access to a spell-checker for your post. As an alternative, if you want to, say, look for something on the web to refer to in your post, you can choose "open new window" in the file menu of your browser, and your original window will sit there, inactive, until you are ready to go back to it.

      In Firefox you can simply open a new tag and browse from there. But the C&P idea is also a good one for long posts - nothing worse than going to enter and finding that you've been logged out - and just lost the entire post.

        IE 7.0 also offers Tab functionality similar to Firefox btw.

            (M) btw, you do NOT want to be me.
