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.

  • Big Cans of San Marzano's at Costco

    Big, as in the industrial sized cans. Has anyone tried them? Are they even real?
    Because ever since I listened to Lynn Rosetto-Caspers Splendid Table episode about San Marzanos, I'm skeptical that ANY we get here are the real deal.
    OTOH, does it matter if they're not real but still tasty?

    Check the fine print on the can. See if there is an Italian government seal.

    I'm also a fan of the "If they taste good, use them" club!

      If no DOP seal on the can, they aren't true SM's, but I'm also a taste good fan!

        So, reporting back....they're knock-offs to be sure, but I'm sort of loving them. I portioned the big can into sandwich bag size portions and stuck them in the freezer. I've been pulling a bag out to thaw, adding oregano and salt and zizzing for just a second or two with the immersion blender. They taste great, and for like $4 a huge can, they'll be on my Costco must buy list from now on.

          We have a NEW word... Zizzing!

          I like these guys. No DOP, but good.

                  Hey Splatgirl,

                  when you say big can, are these the restaurant size #10 cans - weigh in about six pounds each?

                    yes, big restaurant size cans. in comparison to the mindblowingly delicious sauce I made from my homegrown heirloom tomatoes, it's not anything special, but they are decent and the price is right.
