Creating links - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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.

    Sorry, I missed it but I am confused as to how to insert a link in my posts. How specifically do you insert a link to a picaso web site?

    Over the message window are three icons. The first:

    is a globe with a bit of chain. This is your link icon. Highlight the text you want to link to,

    Link to this text

    This brings up a dialog box that you can paste the URL of the page you want to link to.

    The other two buttons insert pictures that have a web address, and box quote something you want to talk about.

    These buttons just insert a bit of HTML code into your text, which you could, of course, type by hand.

      Stephen, if you want to have the link in your "signature" line like mine (see 2 links at bottom of this post), so it appears with all your posts, use the User CP link in the upper left part of the screen, then click Edit Signature. In the box that appears, you can enter the words you want to link (like "My Picasa album"), and then highlight those words (drag over them with the mouse) and then click the little globe that dmum mentioned and enter (or paste in) the address. Hope that helps!

        Dmun and Daren,
        Thank you so much for your help. I was finally able to set up the link to my Picasa web gallery.
