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.

  • Are there any dangers with Pizza Ovens?

    Hi,

    I have just built a pizza oven at my home.

    I have been using it for a few days now, and have noticed cracks in the outer concrete sand casing.

    Is there any dangers of the oven exploding or anything if the heat inside gets too hot?

    The oven is built on a steel table with a first layer of concrete, 2 inches thick, followed by another 2 inches of virmiculite, then a layer of red fire bricks, with a top layer of fire tiles.

    The oven was then constructed with fire bricks in an igloo form.

    Then I covered the whole oven with a 3 inch layer of virmiculite and concrete mix.

    The I cover the whole oven with 2 inch layer of concrete and sand mix.

    Can any experts comment on the safety of this oven. I would hate it to blow outwards with people around it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Shane

        Check out the section On curing your oven its just still not dry and cured
        ...every ltr (pint)of water you have put into your insulation is trying to turn into 70 Ltr ( pints) of steam . It will not explode .... Just crack... So go slow.. No more pizza heat just yet

        Regards Dave

          Even worse. Every litre of water has the potential to create 1000 litres of steam.

          Correction, that should be approx. 1600 litres at ambient temp and normal pressure.
