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.

  • Russian olive wood?????

    I have a friend who just bought some property with a bunch of Russian olive trees on it that he just wants to cut down and get rid of. I was trying to find if it is a good source of wood but haven't been able to find much. Can anyone give me an idea if this is good wood to use? Is it hardwood? The two things I have read that make me question it are that it lets off a cat urine smell sometimes and that gum can be harvested from it. But it does produce a fruit which makes me wonder if it is a fruit tree and therefore possibly a hard wood. Thoughts? Input? Advice?

    Thanks,
    Nate

    Slice a piece and see what the grain is like, it may be worth way more selling it to pen turners.

        Thanks Al and Polo. It sounds (and smells ) like I don't want to burn it in a WFO or near any pizza or other food. It sure looks pretty though. Maybe I need to get it from him anyway and see if I can make some money off it.

        Thanks guys!
