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.

  • official P.N. dough recipe

    has anyone made their dough following the quidelines outlines in the official Pizza Napolitana document listed on this site?

    everything seems sensible but the salt quantity:

    Blend flour, water, salt and yeast. Pour a liter of water into a mixer, dissolve between the 50 and the 55g of salt,
    50-55 g salt is quite a bit for that amount of dough...i mean, i like my food salty, but that's gotta be a misprint!

    also, has anyone ever used the "Belaria" brand pizza flour? james, did you ever see this one in italy? i got it at a local italian grocery specalist, but as i'm only now mixing the dough, i can't say how good it is.

      1800 grams of flour is 4 pounds. 55 grams of salt is almost 2 ounces, or as much as you would put in a salt shaker. Seems way too salty to me.

        the belaria flour worked great. i couldn't believe the consistency--it was really more like pastry dough than any pizza dough i've ever worked with, yet it tossed out to size beautifully. as a matter of fact, the gram measurement they provided for a proper P.N. pettola (180-150g per doughball) was way too thick to get a really thin crust. i tossed the first 180g doughball to about 18" , with perfect shape and elasticity, and ended up having to reball it for later because it was too big to fit on my peel. 100-125g worked much better for me.

        once i get a really good dough routine worked out, i'll post my working interpretation of the instructions layed out in the document.

          by the way, this recipe has worked wonderfully for me. at this point, i just adjust the amount of water occording to how many doughballs i want (1 liter + 1800g flour gives me about 11 balls.), then add the flour until the consistency is right, but the instructions layed out in the document provided a great starting point. the primary factor in this dough being so great, is the belaria pizza flour. the dough has the appearance of pastry dough, but is glutenous enough to be very stretchy.

          i usually let the dough rise for about 3-4 hours, then ball it and let it proof for 2 hours. it is important to know exactly when it's ready, or is becomes too stretchy and hard to get onto the peel after topping. i usually use it as soon as i can make an indentation in the dough ball that doesn't pop back up. really, experience ends up teaching you what works best, though.
