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 parlours 'using coffin wood for fuel'

    Below in italics is a story from the ABC news online posted today at Pizza parlours 'using coffin wood for fuel' - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Either it must be a slow news day or this is a left over article from 1st April. Seriously, I would have thought that coffin wood would be a pretty lousy fuel as it is probably mostly ply wood.

    Italian prosecutors believe pizza in the southern city of Naples may be baked in ovens lit with wood from coffins dug up in the local cemetery, Italian daily Il Giornale reported.

    "Pizza, one of the few symbols of Naples that endures... is hit by the concrete suspicion that it could be baked with wood from coffins," Il Giornale said.

    Investigators in Naples are setting their sights on the thousands of small, lower-end pizza shops and bakeries that dot the city on suspicion the owners may "use wood from caskets to keep ovens burning".

    The city's graveyard has long been a hunting ground for thieves: last year, 5,000 flower pots were stolen from the cemetery.

    "A gang might have set up a market for coffins sold to hard-hearted owners of bakeries and pizzerias looking to save money on wood," Il Giornale said.

    According to tradition, Neapolitan pizza should be cooked in a stone oven with an oak-wood fire.

    Neapolitan pizza was invented between 1715 and 1725, with the world-famous Margherita variant first cooked up in 1889.

    Italy's estimated 25,000 pizzerias employ around 150,000 people and account for a turnover of 5.3 billion euros ($7.5 billion).

    Ohh boy. Imagine if this proves to be true and the new trend that faux sophisticates come up with here in the US. "Your oven just isn't a Naples oven unless you are burning your fire with that of dug up coffins.
