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.

  • Pizza dough balls in Naples

    Did you see this one on YouTube? Excellent. I've always had trouble with the "push the dough through a little hole" technique. These guys are great. Also, note the Caputo T shirts. :-)

    Definitely not 63% hydration.

      I wish I could understand what they're saying. It looks like he's tucking the ends in and squeezing off the ball, creating the surface tension that way. I guess that would be faster than cutting individual pieces.

      That dough does look a lot less sticky. The one he threw on the table almost bounced! None of mine have ever approached bouncy...

        I have watched other videos of Italians spinning pizza dough to make pizzas and in all of the examples the doug looked like it was very stiff. Much lower hydration levels than what seems to be the norm with the formulas on this site.

          Wonder how consistent their ball size/weight is? Am i the only wacko who weighs his doughballs (notice I said DOUGHballs) within a 1/4 oz?

          When I practiced in a local pizzaria they weighed their"s too. You folks?

            I weigh mine to within a few grams *sheepish look*

              We weigh ours...to within reason

                Dearohdearohdear. Well since you ask...

                No guys, I never weigh my balls. I've always thought that consistency and handling are more important than mere size.

                  Especially the handling, Frances.

                      I think I can probably guess who else was on your list...

                      ...but in the rapidly changing world we live in, don't you think its nice when some things stay predictably the same?
