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.

    I'm actually close to becoming a distributor for FB, but don't have anything at the moment.
    There is someone in Duluth who is a distributor, but I don't know if he has anything on hand.
    What are your questions, or do you just want to 'see' something before purchase?

      Wow the guy who builds ovens as inexpensively as possible is becoming a distributor... I guess we can expect great service at very low overhead here in Minnesota.

        I don't have the money to buy a nice oven, but that doesn't mean I can't sell them. My main business has been hit hard (lost 80% of sales) so I needed a cheap solution... and it works very well.

          Hi Tman1,

          Are you going to be a "stocking distributor" with ovens on hand to view?

          gvanbeek might write a message on the Regional Forum asking for folks in his area who might let him look at their FB oven and ask questions.

          Cheers,
          Bob

            If by stocking you mean more than one, probably not.

              I think this is a great. I meant my previous comments as a complement to your fugal nature and ability to see a solution that fit your needs without breaking the bank. I got a great number of the items for my oven on Craigslist for that very reason. Frugal is not cheap it just makes good sense.

              Thanks for setting yourself up to provide new access locally. I am sure you will be providing great service and a unique perspective on WFO building.

                Thanks for the thumbs up. My frugal nature has been honed since the economy went south. I would prefer to have a nice, real oven as I don't get the residual heat baking that I would love to try.... a mobile unit is probably in my future too. Remember to hit me if you need some wood for the surround, you never know what I would have laying around out here.
