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.

  • Sourcing good flour in Adelaide

    I have been looking for some good flour but the supermarkets her in Adelaide seem to have limited options. I would love to hear from other locals about where they are getting their flour for pizza and bread.

    Cheers

    Salv,

    Head down to Gaganis brothers off South Rd. I have tried a few of their flours now - the allied mills is ok but the king for pizza making as far as I'm concerned is the Gaganis special white flour. Around $10-12 for a 10kg bag. Been through 20 kg since xmas They are open till 12 on Saturdays too so you'll have time to get some for that first pizza.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for the advice. I didn't get to Gaganis today but I will definitely try the flour you went with for my next try. I cooked up some pizzas today and will post details tomorrow.

      Cheers

        Hi Salv...and Tim F.........haven't really said gudday yet, but I'm in the same turf as you guys.......so gudday

        Yeah I've used the Gaganis white as well.

        My tips -

        For the Pizza/Foccacia mix I use Allied Flours - bread shop at Holden hill gets it. I tried Lauckes version and didn't find it as good (it seems a tougher flour to work with)

        For Bread I use some of the various Laucke "bakers" flours (not pre-mix). Their website here is worth a read: Laucke Flour Mills - Flours
        I generally like the "Wallaby" bakers, white but you can get wholemeal. Funny enough I've often got it in the large bags (think its 10kg) at a local Foodland (Golden Grove). Check the use by dates but they have generally been fine.

        I've use some of the Tipo 00 stuff out there but not found it in large bags..

        There is also Imma and Marios Mercanto at Newton.....I've not actually got flour there (think they would have it) but its a good place for a wander
        Cheers

          o yeah and if you are going to Gaganis....Neill told me about Omega foods around the corner......another interesting spot for cooking stuff......not the general "run of the meal" supermarket stuff - good

            Hi Damon,

            Gudday to you as well. It's great to hear from other locals and share some information.

            Thanks for the info on the flour - I'm pretty certain the Foodland near me at Norwood also sells Lauckes. So in addition to giving the Gaganis flour a go I will also try Lauckes when I work out how to make bread and actually get a door! I work in town near the central market and yesterday I went to a place called goodies and grains who sell a lot of different flours, including a pizza and foccacia mix. I didn't get any because it was quite expensive ($3 a kilo) but I might go back and find out a few details and try a little bit. Although it wont be for some time - total fire bans and no chance of firing up the oven

            cheers

              just after posting my last reply I realised this thread is probably in the wrong place. Is it worth moving to the ingredients category?

                Salv,
                get down to Gagannis Bros and checkout their range of flours. They have loads of different ones BUT the big downer is that they are only available in 10Kg and a few in 50Kg bags.
                I have their special pizza, special bread and their white high protein (forget their name at the moment) but they have about 10 palettes of it spread around their warehouse.

                  Re: Sourcing good flour in Adelaide

                  Neill - Once again I didn't make it down to Gaganis on Saturday before the 12.30 closing time. Saturday mornings is hectic - 2 kids - both have swimming and other things in the morning. Not that it matters that much - I imagine the wood fired ovens of Adelaide were inactive over this last week's heatwave. The good news however is that I had a good look at the flour aisle of my local Foodland and discovered tha they sold the Gaganis special white. They also have Lauckes and some 1 kg bags of fairly expensive Italian pizza flour.

                  cheers

                    Salv,
                    probably a good way to try the flours without having to buy 10Kg bags.
                    I have 3 bags here, would like to try more but running out of storage room in the pantry as I am not keen to leave it outside in the new kitchen.

                      I finally used the Gaganis special white for my last batch of pizzas the other day and it was excellent. Really soft and easy to work with. I made the dough the night before and left it in the fridge until late afternoon of the next day.
