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.

  • Dough storage containers - freezing

    I saw a few older threads mentioning the use of deli containers for freezing. Are folks using these for 200g or so balls??

    They look like a cheaper option than glad ware or ziplock storage containers....

    Nice. Those should work just fine.

      I purchased several different but similar canisters for individual dough proofing/storage but most were so tight fitting that they were almost impossible to separate without forcing a skewer or knife between them. Ikea has these available in pack of 4, they stack well, don't stick together, easily washed (and wiped), .5 litre or 17 oz capacity and I find them ideal.

      Cheers.

        I use the same IKEA containers as Neil. They work great, and are super cheap!

          Re: Dough storage containers - freezing

          I just bought a bunch of 16 oz screw-top containers, which I'm fond of. Amazon is selling a 2-pack of 3-packs of the Zip-Lock brand for about $5. Not as cheap as those deli containers, but not bad. The screw-top is nice--keeps the lids from exploding off from the CO2 build-up of the dough.

          And to answer your other question, I put 230g dough balls in them with no problems. When I used to make ~300g dough balls, those would get too large for the 16oz box.

            that is a good price for those. I am doing 225-250g balls so 16oz should be fine.

            I am also thinking of trying to freeze my balls in my dough trays and then dropping the frozen balls into bags.....my dough trays will drop right into my deep freezer...hmm....My plan is to keep 20-30 balls in the freezer at all times and just keep rotating them out.
