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.

    I have made a couple of modifications that I think will help new members.

    I changed the Photo Gallery to work for non-registered users, so you can get a feel for the FB Forum, without having to register.

    You need to register (1) Making a Posting, (2) Use Search, and (3) View Attachments in a Posting.

    When a non-registered user views a posting with an attachment, the message now says "You must be registered to view attachments. Click to register. It is easy."

    I also changed the greeting for non-registered members to make it more clear what you can and cannot do.

    Phew.

    This should help.

    Great work James.
    I have introduced numerous members who are concerned about putting their details on the forum just to view the pictures. After all, what is the use of the postings without the pictures.

    By the way, do you or any other memnbers get spoof emails trying to get my personal information.
    I have been getting heaps (40-50 per week) after joining this (and my only) forum????

      40-50? Per week? Man, I get about 2000-3000 a day. The perils of running an online business and having your email address reachable by spiders.

        I started getting those before joining here. It seems they have taken email by storm. I guess I should be honored that I was chosen to handle millions of dollars from south africa (NOT).

          FYI Neil, I have not had this problem so maybe it's not the FB tie.

            I get very few also. I am very careful about where I leave my email address.
            Also took the address out of the browser config. If something needs my address the browser has to ask for it.

              Re: Viewing Images

              I seem to be having a problem viewing attached photos.... at least I think they're attached..
              In any posting where it has a box and the text inside it - Attached Thumbnails - there is never anything in the box.
              I've tried it in the latest Firefox and tried it in Internet Explorer 7 - the box is ALWAYS empty.
              I have no problem following a link and seeing the images, but any of the boxes with "Attached Thumbnails" - the boxes are always empty.
              I should make clear that I am logged in when trying to view them...
              Is it just me, or am I missing something?
              Thanks in advance for any guidance on this - as I do want to see these images.

                James just completed an upgrade to the site. Other people are have problems viewing the thumbnails as well. Give it a few days and it should settle in.

                  We looked at it again, and the photos work in some places and not in others. The miracle of propagation.

                  On the spam thing, we use the best and most secure software out there, and I feel good that your email addresses are being protected. But spammers try incredibly hard to harvest email addresses. It's true criminal behavior. Oh well.

                      Try it now. The Photo Gallery should be back up.

                        James - the gallery is working. The thumbnails are not. The strange thing is that I can see mine, but no one else's.

                        Good luck!

                          Les, you're doing better than me - I can't even see mine.
                          Can anyone see the thumbnails??
