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.

    I hope KiwiPete doesn't mind my posting this. Peter ordered a 55lb bag of Caputo Pizzeria flour for delivery to New Zealand. Caputo doesn't have a distributor there yet, and he really wanted to use it. Needless to say, the shipping cost more than the flour and it will take a while get there, but I think that's great. To me it shows the desire to do things right and not settle for something that isn't what you want.

    Molto eccellente.

    Sources

    James,

    Ran into a source for cheeses, etc., etc., you might want to check out. Go to todarobros.com and have a look at their selection of Italian ingredients. Interesting. Their prices for Marzano tomatoes don't seem outlandish. They've been in business since 1917 in New York.

      Hey Jim,
      You are supposed to buy your San Marzanos from the Forno Bravo Store. :-) Besides, I just checked, and the shipping cost was more than the tomatoes -- some Internet stores do that.

        Pet peeve with internet stores

        And I will name names. Look out for the ones that base the coast of shipping on the price of the item. One of the stores whoe first name is the same as Mr. gates and whose last name is a county in California charges by the price of the item. The wife wanted a fancy dancy toaster that comes from England. The cost is $400. It is a warehouse item only so you can't go to the store to pick it up, you have to mail/email order it. Shipping charges are 10% of the cost of the item. Its total weight was 3 pounds, shipping was $40. Another item that I didn't want but weighed over 100 pounds and came from a European country cost only $100, shipping would have been $10. I ended up going through another company who charged based on weight and destination - fair and equitable.

          James,

          Okay, okay, apologies, mucho. Just a place I found, mostly for cheese. Don't forget, I'm a bread guy, but if I do branch out (vine joke) into pizzas, I'll definitely go to the Forno Bravo store. Might not have to, though, because I live near Toronto, which has the largest Italian population of any city, anywhere, except, I think, Rome. I'll check the stores in Little Italy.
