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.

  • methol hydrate ok in oven?

    I have been starting my fires in my house wood burner with chainsaw shavings soaked in kerosene. I dont want to use this nasty smelling stuff of course in my pizza oven. I was wondering if methol hydrate would be ok. I tested it today and its nice and flamable but not sure if its toxic when ignited.
    I will be burning fir and arbutus mostly and like the idea of having something like what I use in the house for the ease of llighting the fire.
    Any thoughts out there....wayne

    I would say no, I am not an advocate of using any kind of accelerant in such an enclosed space (WFO). Maybe one of our resident pyromaniacs can decypher what I found in the attached link. It mentions that wood alcohol (methyl hydrate - methanol) can be quite explosive.....thats more than enough reason for me not to try it.

      Fir is a resinous wood, and if split fairly finely should burn like kerosine by it's self. I know some people use gas burners, or parafin fire starters, but I'm a paper and kindling kind of guy.
