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.

  • Soapstone floor

    I have a 4'x4'x 1" piece of soapstone that I plan on rounding and using on the oven floor. Does any one have any comments as to using this. I plan on just setting it on top of the fire brick floor with a small space between the wall for expansion. Any comments or suggestions?

    You may not have to cut that huge piece of stone. I'd lay an inch or two of wet concrete on top of my insulating layer, to give you some more thermal mass, and then lay the soapstone slab right down onto the wet concrete. You can build your dome directly on top of that, without any problem.

    That's a heavy piece of stone, you are going to need lots of help to move it.

      Soapstone should heat up very quickly too!!...there have been ovens designed with soapstone through the middle of the floor and firebrick on the outer edges to allow faster heat up for pizza but...better heat retention for bread...should be interesting to hear how it cooks
