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.

  • O.K. I'm an idiot!

    I posted the question the other day asking where I could get the commercial grade flue pipe.I'ts right here on the forno bravo sight!Sorry,I never really looked at the products on the sight I just use this forum to ask questions.I figure I can use regular vent pipe though.Whats the difference I'ts stainless.

    Stainless steel won't rust on you. If you use an ordinary galvanized steel pipe you will have to replace it somewhere down the track.

      However, don't kid yourself that stainless steel flue will last a lifetime either.
      When you heat it up as in welding or in a fire, it oxidises and rusts quite readily.
      To prevent this, you must passify it with passivating paste which is a combination of hydroflouric acid (etches glass), hydrachloric acid (brick clean or pool acid) and nitric acids. This eats all the oxide leaving only stainless steel.

        Neill,
        Does this mixture restore the nice shiny stainless look? When I hire out my mobile oven people treat it like a rental car. I wonder how much fire we can put in this thing? I think it has had some pretty hot flames up the flue and that has made the pipe brown. My permanent oven which is about the same age still has a nice shiny flue because I fire it correctly.

          I'm concerned because I built an oven with a fireplace attached to it and I am going to tie the flue for the oven into the stack for the fireplace.Once I'm done this flue pipe is going to be completely buried forever.Nothing will last forever but I'm just trying to decide what's best to use.

            Flabuck,
            I would look into a terracotta flue liner, size suitable for your requirements, ie for the 2 devices, cut and glue the bits t suit the joins and then either render or encase it in brick or stonework. This would then last almost forever!

            David,
            it cuts the oxidised stainless back to a shiny surface but not to be confused to a polished one.

              I think I'll just hit it with the flap wheel and the orbital sander.
