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.

      And sweet Lucretia, so young and gay
      What scandalous doings in the ruins of Pompeii.
      Where is Venetia, who loved to chat so?
      Could still she be drinking in her stinking pink palazzo?
      Where is the life that late I led?
      Where is it now? Totally dead!

            And you gave me crap about TCU, you are not a horned frog are you?

            We did an island in our patio for a place in grill and I stuccoed that with a Sherman Williams product and the color unexpectedly had a pinkish look. Needless to say we painted right over it. I'm thinking of doing stone over it now. Let's see how my stone work goes on the WFO first.
            What are you cooking this weekend?

                Thanks Sarah,
                Eventually, I will tie it all into a counter/bar/BBQ. Tile on the floor for sure. Possibly polished concrete counters, veneered stone on the sides is my thinking at this point.

                RC,
                Horned Frog? Are you kiddin' me??? Beaver baby, all the way!!! OSU our pants are off to you, Mother F...rs, SOBs too! What a classic fight song!

                  George,

                  You could say it was fuchsia or a "manly" terra cotta. Not matter what you call it looks great. I love the detail you did on the archway.

                  I'm planning my build for this spring. One thing I realized is that you want the oven to look good but when it's all said and done you don't see much of the actual "dome" just the entrance and the back of the oven. I need to spend more time on how the outside will look which I can tell you did.

                  You did a fabulous job!!!!

                    Congradulations George! Looks fantastic. Way to stick with it. I have noticed that construction on my oven has slowed way down since I started cooking in it. You're an inspiration.

                      Dick and Dusty,
                      Thanks for the comments. My goal was to get the oven finished, and try to do a better job on the outside than I did on the inside. If the oven doesn't implode, then I consider it a success.
                      People judge you on what you do, what you say, and mostly, on what they see. As James said, spend more time on what people see. I did what he suggested. I'm not sure I succeeded in my plan, but building an oven for me, was like taking a rafting trip down a river. Pick a course, deal with the rapids and flat spots, and see where you end up.

                      I applaud those who have the technical skill and patience to build a perfect dome with minimal mortar joints. They are a sight to behold. Once its covered with insulation, no one knows how awesome it is/was. If I was more gifted, it would have turned out better, but I'm not unhappy at all. I've got a WFO in my back yard! I'm diggin' it!

                        Great result George. I really like the arch treatment and the polished concrete works to a 'T'

                          Thanks Inishta,
                          I value your opinion. I'd love to make it back to your world someday. I really enjoyed my limited travels in Turkey. I've got several great (hopefully antique) Kilim rugs to show for my short week in your world. I'd love to reproduce some of the great meals I ate there in my oven.

                            You mob are sick; that's god-awfull Sir George.
                            Reminds me of the breasts of beautiful Scandanadians, who've just lobbed in to the Cairns area (Qld, Oz, for those who are guessing, Mission Beach in particular), from the depths of the Northern gloom).
                            Beautifull construction: just don't touch.... or you're dead, buddy.*

                            Sir George of Longview,
                            You bask in a surfeit of accolades.
                            Do the right thing M'Lord. Cast your vote to the North.
                            Vote (1) CJim.
                            *a reference to naked sunbathers. Like GJB's oven. Beautiful construction, wrong colour. Ouch!

                              Lucky man, Jeff. Never hurts to have a look at those bathing beauties and dream of days gone by, huh?

                              Sorry I didn't respond to your post on the Clinker Grabber thread. We were way off topic. I decided to let it die there once someone redirected the discussion.

                              Vote's already cast mate! I think it was Acoma again. I've gotta look back and review. Got my own case of eggtimers diseast here!
                              Give Jess a hug!
