Broken Linked Photos - hunting for them - 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.

  • Broken Linked Photos - hunting for them

    I am going to pick on Marcel cause he has a thick skin.

    If you are searching through the old threads, say those by Marcel or maybe PaulAges, You may find that some posts have broken links to photos. What has happened is that the owner of the photo has re-arranged where his photos reside or s/he has chaged the name or s/he may have removed them from the source location.

    For example let's take a look at this thread


    Marcel has kindly noted that his photo no longer shows up in the original thread but he has corrected it in this copy of part of his thread.
    The original photo was stored as

    ht tp://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/marceld/Pompeii%20Oven%20Construction/77LeftsidePerliteDome.jpg
    (I had to embed a space in the link otherwise the software for this board would shrink the name)

    This is what you see when the picture is embedded in the post

    read up on how to embed pictures by going to the FAQ section or I have linked part of it here


    sometime after he made his original post he has resorted or modified the location of the file and it is now called/found


    (this is the picture below)

    So how do you find pictures that have been moved from their original location?

    I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser...

    right click on the picture and then hit "properties" there it will tell you where the file was supposed to be. In this case the file was in the web page from Photobucket. I don't use Photobucket but I figured that A318 is some sort of Photobucket sub category and that Marceld is that actual main section. So I drop this into a new browser page and then go looking at the photos posted on Photobucket by Marcel. Now it takes a bit of sleuthing to find out what pick goes with the thread....
