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.

  • Cooking Surface Clean?

    Im am wondering what the best procedure/technique is to insure my cooking surface once hot, is clean, enough for the first pizza. I tried last week with a brush only and the crust came out a bit "dusty".

    After raking and brushing your fire to the side, slap your metal peel on the floor a couple of times. That will get rid of the gritty stuff. The rest will go up the flu . But, it is all good . By the time you get up to pizza temps, everything in the oven is sanitized .

      I have been told that they think the "ash dust" it what makes the pizza taste so good. I simply brush mine clean and call it good - never had any grit, just dust. I do swab the hearth before I bake, but that is to get some humidity more than anything else.

          I don't even brush anymore, just a couple of slaps.

              If ashes build up I have a natural fiber bush that I dip in a water bucket, then brush off the floor a couple times. Most of the time, the time the oven is running at a high temp and cleans itself.

                Yes,these ovens are self cleaning, as long as you get them up to temperature.
                Where can I find logs? I need more!
                Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/
