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.

  • For now it is just a dream..

    I am very excited to have found this board. A friend found CanukJim's thread about mixers, and sent me over here because she thought I might be interested. I didn't realize there were so many people excited about brick ovens.

    I live in Monterey, CA right now, while my wife finishes her post-doc in biology. I work as an administrator at the marine station she is at to pay the bills and bring in the health insurance. The deal is that when she finishes here and finds a professor job, we will move, buy a house, and I will work part time while she brings in the health insurance. Then I will build or buy a brick oven, and try to start a small business selling bread at farmer's markets and possibly on a subscription/CSA model.

    I would call myself a journeyman baker. I baked my way through Peter Reinhart's "Bread Baker's Apprentice" as a form of training. I recently bought Jeffrey Hamelman's "Bread" but haven't baked much from it yet. When I was reading Alan Scott and Daniel Wing's "Bread Builders" I realized that there was, in fact, a way to turn what I love doing (baking bread) into something resembling a business.

    It looks like I am not the only one. I would love to hear any feedback more experienced people have on the topic, but I mostly wrote this to introduce myself.
