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.

  • Another Fireside site in Dallas

    We visited the site closer to downtown Dallas last night. Overall we enjoyed it imnensely. The kids gave it a grade of 9 We started with a 4 cheese fondue - a basic pie that seemed to have brushed with egg white served with side dish of marinaro sauce with melted cheese that we ladled onto our slices. We then had a 'Light n' Crispy' similiar to a margherita and ordered one of the menu like a Hawaiian pizza- with pineapple . The basic was my personnally favorite but the pineapple on the other was good, not liquidy.
    It's a small place with 10 tables inside and maybe that many on the patio (which was full in spite of the rain and cold)

    Not having made a WFO pie as of yet, I'm not a pizza snob at the moment. Hope I can do as well as last night. Should be fun trying.

    In addition to a shaker with red pepper flakes they had one with herbs in it. The waitress only knew it was herbs. I liked it on the pizza, so does anyone know what type of blend it may be?

    My bet is that your pies will be better than anything you will find in a restaurant, and that you are well on your way to becoming a pizza snob. :-)

        Hi RC.............just an educated guess but I'm pretty sure it's what we call Kekik, or dried Oregano/Marjoram, in Turkey. It is on every restaurant table (along with the compulsory red pepper flakes). I use it for a lot of Mediterranean dishes and it is indispensible in pasta and tomato based sauces. Turkey is the major supplier but there is also Mexican Oregano which is a completely different flavour to the Med one.

          ...or you could grow some Oregano somewhere near the oven and put it on the pizzas fresh. Should grow fine in Texas, I think, as long as you water it from time to time.

          I cut mine off in Autumn and dry it to see me through the Winter.

            One of our many other projects is landscaping our yard. We've done the trees and the front and we have started the beds in the back on a couple of warm days we have had recently. My wife plans on having a section there for herbs, she has always done this in boxes before.
            In addition to oregano, I'll ask for marjoram as well.
            thanks

              I just relandscaped my front yard last summer. I have completely taken out the traditional suburban lawn . My entire yard now consists of herbs and low maintenance plants. Tell your wife to go hog wild with the herbs. They make great landscape plants and require nothing more than to whack them once in a while for use in the kitchen. My yard is the talk of the area and contains the following

              5 lavender plants ( 3 varieties)
              Sage ( golden, purple, ordinary, pineapple and varigated)
              5 kinds of thyme (golden, varigated, silver, creeping and mother of thyme)
              Oregano ( greek and golden)
              Marjarom ( 2 types)
              Pansy ( the flowers are edible)
              Nastursum ( the flowers have a nice peppery flavor.)

              They make for a beautiful and tasty yard.

                Sounds yummy Bruce. I've got a lot of those myself. My Italian Parsley survived the winter and actually grew quite a bit in the cold. Cilantro's a must for Mexican and Indian cooking but unfortunately, goes to seed pretty quick. Oh, and one of my favs - Rosemary. Almost indestructable.

                  Hey George
                  You're right. I forgot about my 7 rosemary plants. I have about 4 varieties and it's a wonder that they grow at all. It's my wife's favorite herb and I need all 7 plants so that she doe'nt whack them clear down to the roots. I used some of the branches a few weeks ago as Rosemary skewers for a nice shiskabob. ( chicken, bell pepper, onions, pineapple)
