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.

  • A16 San Francisco

    We were in San Francisco this weekend and called to see if we could get into A16. The only available reservations were before 5:45PM or after 10PM.

    I guess business is good.

    Hey All - I had back-to-back meetings in Oakland and San Francisco that involved an overnight stay, so I made some advance reservations at A16. It was a Tuesday night and the earliest they could get me in was 9.15!! Business is definitely good...it was packed.

    I got there a little early and because I was a party of 1 (loser!!!), I got to sit at the Chef's station - which is basically a marble bar in front of the ovens, which is where I wanted to be anyway! They had two wood burning ovens, 1 for pizza and 1 for sides and entrees.

    The servers and the cooks were all really friendly and I enjoyed sitting at the bar - I was also right near the waiter station, so you get lots of colorful commentary in SF.

    I had a great salad of Arugula, Walnuts, Nectarine, Olives, Pecorino, and EVOO. Then I ordered a white pizza - sausage, fennel, mozz, chili flakes. It was fantastic - especially right out of the oven. I also had a couple of really good Belgian wheat beers. The crust had nice blisters and a smoky flavor. They initially did VPN training at the same place I went to in Marina Del Rey. I was having flashbacks watching the guy make all those pizzas - stressful!!

    One of the items they were selling a lot of (besides Margherita Pizza) was oven roasted corn. They took an ear of corn, blanched it, cut it into about 5 pieces a bout 2 inches thick, stood them on their ends, drizzled with EVOO, and roasted them in the oven for a few minutes. When they came out, tossed in a bowl with EVOO a little salt and black pepper. They looked great and they sure sold a lot of them.

    They also had a great wine list with a huge selection from Italy.

    You can do reservations on line at www.a16sf.com so definitely check it out if you are going to be in SF.
