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.

  • FB Wood-Fired Newsletter

    We have kicked off a fun new project -- the Wood-Fired Newsletter. It is an email newsletter with techniques, recipes, products, special promos, etc. The idea is to make it fun and educational. We are using a very high quality email services company, and so far, it's going really well.

    If you get a copy of the newsletter, let us know what you think -- and make recommendations for future content. It has to be useful.

    I had to make some changes to FB.com to make it work, along with doing the newsletter template and contact management set up -- but we're good to go now. I think I'm ready to start the Video Series. At least I will be when we finish painting the kitchen. More on that later....

    We're open for recommendations.

        Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter

        There is an FAQ on FB.com that I wrote about four years ago. :-) Maybe it's time to revive it -- I hope it's still accurate; it could use to work. If we polish it up, it would make a good newsletter article.

          Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter

          Its just an idea, but how about an article featuring a particular oven each time?

          How often will it be sent out - once a week/month/year...?

            What are you going to call it?

            Let's have a newsletter naming contest! (More buckshot flour?)

            Has it gone out yet?

              Sounds like a plan to me. When can I expect to see it? Do I need to make any changes on my profile to make sure I get it or is it going to everybody?

                Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter

                How do we get the newsletter? Does it automatically go to our email or do we need to sign up...?

                Thanks
                Dick

                Sounds like a great idea.

                  Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter

                  Because the Forum has a "do not send me email" option (opt out) -- Forum members are on the delivery list automatically. That is unless you checked that box. :-)

                  We are working through some delivery issues with the mail management company, but you should see it (if you haven't yet) in a couple of days. The lists are pretty long, and we want to get it right. We've send about 1/4 of the newsletters so far.

                  Let me know when you get it, and what you think. We will be adding sections based on Forum input in future Issues. It will be monthly.

                    I got it. It looks great. I like the layout. It's brevity is also nice. I would rather have a few topics of focus, rather than long didactics. I receive too many newsletters that I simply don't read because they are too long.

                      James,

                      I dont' think I've gotten one yet. Any chance you can post here in a .pdf or something?

                      Thanks
