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.

  • La Piazza Al Forno for great Napolitana pizza

    Hello All,

    You are in for a treat when you stop at La Piazza Al Forno located in downtown Glendale, Arizona. It is easy to find around lunch time, just follow the steady line of customers to the door. (5803 W. Glendale Avenue, 85301).

    La Piazza Al Forno | Brick Oven Pizzeria Napoletana & Italian Kitchen | Glendale, Arizona

    La Piazza Al Forno has Verace Napolitana Certification

    My Napolitana style pizza was covered with crushed San Marzano tomatos, home made mozzarella cheese, prosciutto, shaved parmesan, extra virgin olive oil and fresh arugula. Totally delicious.

    A special treat was getting a look at the Stefano Ferara wood fired oven. It was burning pecan and white oak. The owner said this oven was so much better than "the other" and was saving him about $500 per month in wood. Not a smudge of smoke was obvious on the entrance to the oven. The chimney draw was amazing, and without the aid of an exhaust fan.

    I can hardly wait to go back and try their other pizzas. Visit the website and look at their menu.

    Cheers,
    Bob

    Thanks for the heads-up, Bob! Great review of the restaurant and the fantastic-looking pies. I'm really impressed at how Stefano Ferrara got his genuine brick oven to look like a cast commercial oven! I won't forget to stop in next time I'm out that way.

      Hi John;

      If you go to La Piazza please contact me. I don't live far from there.

      I looked at the gallery photos of the SF ovens and they all have a similar exterior shape and appearance. If you look closely you will see subtle differences though. They are surely handsome ovens but the big difference is inside. Uno Forno, handmade brick ovens by Stefano Ferrara. Search Google a little and you will pick up bits of information on the refractory materials used.

      Cheers,
      Bob

        Bob,

        Thanks for the offer! I wouldn't think of visiting Glendale without looking you up and making up any kind of reason to drop by with a couple of bottles of Zin and a request to check out both of your ovens! Right now I haven't plans to visit AZ but by this time next year my 16yo daughter will have committed to a college (she's a swimmer and has been contacted by schools in the Big 10, ACC, SEC and Pac-10. If she picks USC (her current fav) then we'll definitely plan to visit when SC swims at ASU or UofA!
