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.

  • Help! Moist Wood In South Florida!

    We just received our new beehive pizza oven and are very frustrated!

    It seems it is more difficult to find wood here in South Florida that is not MOIST than I thought it would be! Does anyone in South Florida have any suggestions for us? Trying to find hard fruit or oak wood that has not been chemically treated, at a store, and dry seems impossible. Do you suggest we purchase oak at Home Depot? Yikes.

    I will mention that I am secretly surprised that this will take a bit of skill to learn how to get the perfect wood, temp, ingred.... just to make one small tiny delicious pizza! I am so looking forward to that day when we "know" our oven and it's behavior in a more intimate way!

    Let us know if you have any suggestions at krystldipace@comcast.net. Navigating through the forum seems a bit overwhelming to me at this moment.

    After you are done cooking. Put the next load of wood in the hot oven to dry it out. Watch out that it does not catch on fire.

      Hey Tom,
      I don't think there is anything more frustrating than wet wood. We had a delivery a few years ago that just wouldn't burn. We ended up calling it asbestos wood (I was convinced it was non combustible), and let it sit for a year before we came back to it. We arranged another delivery to take it's place in the meanwhile.

      The good news is that when you have a nice load of dry wood -- the Primavera oven shoots up to cooking temperature. No problems.

      If the wood isn't too terrible, Fullback66's idea also works. If it is really bad, you might call around for a half court (or less) of truly dry wood from a different company.

      Let us know how it goes.
