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.

  • Silver Birch for WFO?

    Hi all,

    I have been offered some silver birch from my usual log supplier. In the past this has been mixed in with alder wood which I reserved for actual cooking; I used the silver birch just for firing, where possible. But now he doesn't have any alder.

    I would like to know if there are any known safety issues with silver birch. Does anyone else on here use it?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    According to Wikipedia it should be safe.

    "Silver birch wood can make excellent timber for carving kitchen utensils such as wooden spoons and spatulas: its very mild, sweet flavour does not contaminate food, and it has an attractive pale colour."

      That's actually one of the better woods to burn. Pretty much all quality firewood in Finland are made of it. And it's what I mainly use in my wfo.

      They also make Xylitol from the sap of silver birch. And it's good for making furniture as it's hard and pretty dense wood with beautiful color to it.
