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.

  • Fireside Pies, Grapevine

    My wife and I had our first visit to Fireside Pies, the newest of a 3-store mini chain in the Dallas area. They have two ovens that appear to be wood/gas hybrids.

    We tried two pizzas... the toppings on each ended up being a bit overwhelming, we should have gotten a margherita for basic comparisons.

    The "hot and crumbly" had hot italian sausage, tomatoes, and peppers... but the sausage was noticeably greasy, which was a minus.

    The second pizza was chicken, oven roasted mushrooms, and spinach. The spinach was piled on top like a salad, so again, a bit ridiculous. The toppings tasted good, but there was nothing subtle about the "pie."

    The crusts on each pizza had a nice appearance and flavor... the right amount of charring, a few puffy spots on the corncione. The "oven roasted" tomato sauce was underwhelming.

    All in all... a decent attempt at gourmet pizza, and we're always happy to see wood-burning ovens, but we'd have to give Fireside a grade of "B."
