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.

  • Trattoria Della Nonna

    While on a business trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia, last week, I was able to get some time off to tour both Mahone Bay and Lunenburg (home to the Bluenose tall ship). The Canadian Maritime Provinces are well worth a visit any time: lobster, mussels, crab, chowder anyone? They are simply everywhere: from good restaurants to roadside diners.

    A bit of luck in Lunenberg led me to Trattoria Della Nonna on King Street (the salmon colored building in the pic), a wood fired pizzeria that does a fine job, although the owner told me she had some trouble introducing her customers to charring on a well baked pizaa. I had the Quattro Fromaggio, which was quite tasty indeed. My only reservations were a bit too much cornmeal on the bottom of the pie (a no-no for the pizzas we make here) and a dough that could have benefitted from a higher hydration level. Otherwise, full marks.

    Another stroke of luck led me to 1826 Maplebird House, a charming and very hospitable B&B in a restored 19th century house (Lunenburg has no hotels, only B&Bs) run by Susie Scott and Barry Chappell. It's the house pictured with the projecting dormer. The other guests included one couple from the Lake District in England and another from Washington, DC.

    Lunenburg and Quebec City are the only UNESCO listed heritage cities in North America, because both have maintained their original street plans and buildings. Either one is well worth exploring.
