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.

  • The un-pizza

    I don't know where I get these ideas. Actually, I do, but I prefer not to go alone into those dark places of my mind. LOL Anyway, I have some pretty crazy ideas for "pizza" toppings and was wondering if anyone has any stories of bazaar pizzas. (if you can call them pizza)

    One of my ideas is to make a chole pizza. (pronounced cho-lay) If you have ever had East Indian chicpea curry, then you have had chole. Personally, I could live on chole alone. It's the perfect food, especially when eaten with fresh paratha or roti. (flat breads) So, I think I am going to try it one day soon. I have developed my own outstanding chole recipe and so I think the time is right for a pizza with an East Indian flair. The toppings would layer like... chole gravy, mozzarella, chole, chopped red onion, cillantro, and maybe some lime juice. When it comes out of the oven, top it with either sour cream or fresh plain yogurt, ala the Indian way. I know this must sound insane, but I just bet the flavours would be amazing... and HOT too.

    Another whacked out idea I have is the Thanksgiving Pizza. Imagine... top the dough with gravy, layer on the mashed potatoes (or sweet potatoes, yams, etc) and then top with pulled turkey breast. Not sure about cheese on this one, but maybe there's room for some mozz/cheddar.

    Do I need professional therapy or are these ideas viable?

    Re: The un-pizza

    How bout posting your chole recipe.

    I've never had it or heard of it.


    For pizza... How bout pulled pork mixed with BBQ sauce.
    Take the dough, sauce it with pizza sauce, add the pulled pork mixture, and then a ton of mozzarella.

    Yum
    !

    I think you are crazy. I think all of us here are crazy! We build a huge brick thingy-ma-bobber in our backyards. Go nuts over chopped up fire wood. And we discuss how wet are dough is.

    I'd say that qualifies for crazy.

    But it sure is a great bunch of nuts!

    Let us know how your pizza turns out!
    Pics would be great.

          Well, I just got word that Dr. Phil has cancelled my show. Evidently, my world is in too much upheaval.

          As for my chole recipe, see the attached text file.

              Momo,
              Sounds yummy to me.

              California Wood Fired Pizza (I think that is the chain) does a Thai Chicken in Peanut Sauce Pizza that is absolutely killer.

                  Momo,

                  I'm with you, actually. One of my favorite unconventional pizzas is to make Dhansak Chicken by conventional means....eat it as is the first day along with some delicious jasmine or basmanti rice....then, the next day, use the curry base for the sauce on a pizza....and add torn strips of the tender chicken as a topping, and there you go. It is incredible.

                  I actually convert a lot of my favorite meals into a flatbread "pizza" version.

                    Sammy, sounds awesome. I need to Google for Dhansak chicken though and see what that's all about. I recently had some authentic channa made by my friends from Punjab... had leftovers and completely forgot to try this idea.

                      Just try variations with whatever spices you like. I have another version with Tandoori Chicken on it.

                      Dhansak, however, is a Parsi dish with a couple different types of masala (dhansak and sambar). It has a lentil and vegetable base (ginger, garlic, onions, pumpkin potato, tomatoes, chiles). It gives a nice "stewy" texture to the main curry that the chicken is cooked in. Since the lentils get super tender and just break apart if cooked enough, you can put it on the pizza directly with chunks of lentil, potato, onion, tomato, etc.....or you can scoop some of it into a blender and puree it a little to smooth it out. I prefer it chunky, but knew my wife and kids wouldn't go near it if they could tell what it was , so I pureed some for their pizzas and even they liked it like that ha ha ha
