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.

            Hey Nick, good to hear from you. How are you doing?

            Les, we need to change the member titles, and start offering goodies for reaching new levels.

            Something like this:

            0-49 postings; Serf -- you work for free, and give us half your crop;
            50 postings; Peasant -- you can keep all of your crop;
            100 postings; Apprentice -- a dough cutter;
            250 postings; Journeyman -- a pizza cutter;
            500 postings; Master Builder -- a 5-pack of Caputo flour;
            1000 postings; Pizzaiolo -- A Molino Caputo T-shirt;

            What do you think of the levels and titles?

                  Les,

                  A measly 100, eh? You've only got 526 to go to come up to my level, nyah, nyah . I'll go with the Master Builder title; sounds pretty fine to me. Already got the Caputo, courtesy James. Great stuff it is, too.

                  Cheers,
                  Jim

                    Jim,

                    I definitely have some work to do to get to your level, and your input has been awesome! But come on, you get flour, where as I get a DOUGH CUTTER - that's got to be the holy grail of the forum.

                    Back to the sand - would fine be considered a #30?

                    Les...

                      Honestly , It has been 20 years since I used this formula . I am a blacksmith and it is a standard formula to cast a forge base to use with coal or for that matter any fire source. I would use the cleanest sand i could get and experiment on a small scale and you will easily figure it out . I have heard people add vermicualite or ashes to make it fluffier . See my site at
