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.

    Chris, what part of the bay area? I have a book "everybody loves pizza" that has a few recommendations for N. Cal.
    Check out my pictures here:

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      I'm playing with the idea of driving up to So. San Fran to tour the SFBI and do a bread recon. If it happens I'll likely push into Sonoma.
      Breads on my list include:

      Acme and Tartine among others. I might drop by FB just to say hello, but don't know that I'll have the time.


      Chris

      PS if I make the run I'll be bringing home a few different Guisto and Central Milling flours.

        Chris,

        You can't not go here. An icon in true Neopolitan pizza, IMO.

              I had an emergency crop up at work so I haven't been yet. Hopefully I can leave Friday, but realistically, I think it's going to have to wait for another time.

                Got ya! Let me know when you go. I go every 3 months or so. I have some additional information that will be helpful. stiltner5501@gmail.com. Also, Forno Bravo will most likely have the facility finished.

                    Hey Chris,

                    If you haven't made your trip yet, try Woodside Bakery, about 15 minutes north of Stanford U. I had the most satisfying, woodsy mushroom pizza I have ever eaten there.

                    http://woodsidebakery.com/menus/lunch_menu.pdf

                    And don't forget to stop by Tartine Bakery on Guerrero St. when you're in the city, unless you've already been there.

                      John, My trip to NoCal went out the window, I needed to take care of a problem at work that came up at just the wrong time.. :-(
                      The up side is that I now have leads on a few bakeries and pizza places to hit.. :-)

                      Thorough Bread & Pastry is just up the street from Tartine and is somehow related to SFBI, San Francisco Baking institute. It's suppose to be superb and where Tartine is always reported to have a long line, Through is suppose to be accessible and excellent. I can't say that Tartine is any more or less excellent, maybe this summer I can comment. I also want to get up to the Farmers market in Sonoma to sample a few of Mike Zakowski's breads. Mike, AKA the bejkr, was part of the US baking team for the world championships in Paris last year. The US team got 3rd if I remember correctly. Mike bakes in a wfo built in a shipping container and sells at the Farmers markets in Sonoma.

                      I'll get up there this summer..

                        Hi Chris,

                        My next trip to get a WFO pizza will be here: UNA PIZZA NAPOLETANA

                        The restaurant comes very highly recommended. Not much for frills I would say however that is not what I am looking for. The Chronicle did an article on him a while ago.

                        I went to the SFBI Wood Fried Class last month and it was a great learning experience. The pizza was unimpressive however I am a pizza snob and hard to please. The oven management and the amount of different types of bread baked in 3 day was fantastic.

                          Anyone been to Miller’s Bakehouse in Chico, California?

                          Thanks

                            I did not know Millers was doing pizza?

                              Sorry, I don't believe that they do, but I don't know the bakery and was hoping that someone up there might have some insight about what they do and how that person or persons describe them and the product/s. It's a very intriguing place. They buy the grain, and other ingredients, from local farmers. It sounds like they mill what they use on a daily basis. Additionally they use a steam tube, wood fired oven. All Sourdough?

                              Chris

                              PS Oroville is not anywhere near SF, but SF / NorCal is closer to Oroville than my normal stomping grounds..

                              PSS Josey Baker of The Mill in San Francisco did some training with Dave Miller the owner of Miller's Bakehouse..

                              PSSS Do I need to change my last name to bake and or mill? :-)
