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.

  • Bread Baking for King Richard?

    I'm interested in leaning more about how people baked bread back during the reign of King Richard theLionhearted of England.
    For a renaissance faire...
    It would be around the last half of the12th century....
    Do you have any idea how they did that?
    What their ovens looked like?
    Do you know of any web links that would point to how to build an authentic looking oven like one that might have been used back then?

    Thanks,
    Barry Watson

    H Barry,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I'll be interested to see if any of our forum members have any clues on your question.

    These wood ovens have been used over most of the world for thousands of years. Except China, I haven't seen anybody report any period over time when the Chinese used retained heat ovens for cooking.

    The French had community ovens and the Kings would restrict the building of ovens, so the only oven available in a village was "The Kings". And the villagers would have to schedule a time to use the community oven, and pay for the privilege of using the oven. I don't know if the same system was in place in England.

    Maybe some of our forum members from the UK will have some experience with the subject and can direct your research efforts...

    Do report back with the information you find, it will be interesting to know!
