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.

  • Italian olive oil -- not from Italy

    Wally,

    I have put out some requests to food pro's and restaurants in NorCal, and will let you know what I find.

    Your comment on non-Italian Italy olive oil is right. The olive oil laws let bottlers say where the oil was bottled (Italy) and not where the olives come from (typically Spain, Turkey, etc.) So much of the Italian olive oil (particularly in the states) isn't really Italian. There was a mini-scandal last year and a number of newspaper articles written about it. This year, a number of bottlers get the marketing aspect of this, and are adding "100% Italian" to the label when they can.

    I have a couple of olive oil pages on the FB.com site, if you are interested.

    Also, have you worked in pizzerias in Italy? I think everyone would enjoy hearing about your pizza oven cooking experience.

    Wally,
    I know that there are many good brands of San
    Marzano's here in the US but, like you said, there are
    also many imposters. There is one brand that is
    called San Marzano and the tomatoes are grown in
    California. Isabella imports to the US. As for Olive
    Oil I think it is much the same story. Many brands
    that import through Italy so they can claim to be
    Italian but are actually made somewhere else.
