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.

  • New Zealand Fuera Oven comes in for landing

    So at last my new Fuera Oven arrived today.

    The guys were awesome and did a early evening installation.

    Some serious air time to get it to the base pad. I was nervous as hell.

    Still - it all ended well and I am very happy. The guys stayed and talked me thru the first firing and offered a number of awesome cooks that I cannot wait to try out.

          I am really happy with the oven, and think it looks awesome. The quality of finish is very high and the service 10 / 10.

                Very nice, but those are large mortar joints ?

                  I guess there are some that are made smaller. But - Hey, Its a lot better than I could do myself, and the oven in general is extremely well finished.

                  I promise to post my first pizza pics (assuming I dont muck them up) to show that it cooks just fine !

                    Who made that wooden stand? That looks sweet!

                    Congratulations and welcome to the club...i.e. the Cool Guys with their own WFOs!

                      Thanks. The stand was made by the same guy - he mills the wood himself off his farm and is made from Macrocarpa (Cupressus macrocarpa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) - or what "you guys" call Monterey cypress.

                      They grow large down here - like 40m high. He is making me a coal rake and a pizza peel with the handles being made from the same tree.

                          Hey Andy.

                          Yep - Cured it over a weeks worth of fires. The Fuera ovens hold up very well - no cracking and held heat really well.

                          While doing the curing we roasted a chicken (cooked fantastically) and made a really nice Hearth bread.

                          Super impressed.

                          Picked up some 00 flour and am going to have a crack at pizzas for the first time tomorrow. Complete with the big angry fire.

                          Chris
