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.

  • Near completion, Pompeii build

    Well, we are nearly complete with the new WFO build... And really looking forward to learning how to cook in this new back yard appliance!

    I still have two significant projects to wrap up on this oven; the stucco exterior, and a counter top. In the mean time, the curing process is in full swing.

    As part of the 'curing' I will attempt a slow cook pork dish. The pulled pork dish you all were talking about caught my attention, so when I get the temperatures up a bit in the oven, I'll toss a pork shoulder in the oven with a bit of sauce and let it simmer over night...

    I started this build in the middle of March '08, and have a bit over $1,100 USD invested so far.. and shouldn't need to buy much more stuff to finish the build.

    The picture-story of this build is in the photo gallery...

    This image is the curing fire from today. Kind of have to work at it to keep the fire from getting to big!

    I've seen your pics in the photoblog. Nice build Jed. Take a pic of that first pulled pork dish. What a nice way to start while you cure the oven.

    Coldish Spring out there in Bend this year, huh? I was considering a trip to the Deschutes downstream at Maupin, but I figured the hatches were way off schedule. Normally, it should be 90 degrees and blazing hot during the days. Not this year.

      This is our first spring on the east side of the mountains...(born and raised in the PDX area). All the old timer's here report that it is a cold spring, and as of the past week, it is getting wet (and that is OK as we were well below normal precip on the year so far.. even with record snow in the mountains...).

      We are moving here from Anchorage, so although it may be colder than 'normal', it's all good to me!

        Jed,

        Looks great!!!!

        I'm hoping to start curing next weekend. I think I'll christen the oven with the first fire and let my wife have the honor of lighting it. She's been putting up with my obsession for over a year now.

        Can't wait to see the finished product.

          Did you use the word "obsession"?

          I guess I'm not the only guy with a near single focus...

          I've enjoyed watching your build also, the oven is looking great and even more importantly, it looks like your family is really enjoying the process...

          Good luck with the curing - have you decided when to start cooking, or will you wait until you can get the oven hot enough for pizza?

            Anchorage to Bend. Grab a water bottle. It's going to get hot soon! Keep us posted on the curing and cooking.
