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.

  • Gueullard (Poilane Oven) Plans/build

    Hi all, i'm new here and i'm here looking for information regards building a bread oven. I worked briefly on Lionel Poilane's oven about 20 years ago, and now that i'm only baking for friends and family i'd like to build an oven in my backyard. Having used wood ovens for the last 24 years, the Gueullard style oven fit my requirements.
    Has anyone built such an oven? I will need to scale it down to fit a space of 5m x 4m.
    I'm unsure of the pitch on the hearth, and i'm not sure of the flying set up,
    I do now have the materials and will be in Paris this christmas to catch up with a few of the Bakers at the Cherch de Midi store.
    I just thought i'd ask, to see if anyone has thought about these ovens or even if they could suggest improvements to this very old design.

      This shows a cut away from an old book. Might help a little with the slope and dome shape.

      There is a french oven manufacturer who appears to sell the components needed to build their normal black ovens as Gueullard ovens, but I don't want to say much more as they are a direct competitor to Forno Bravo. If you dig a bit you will find the info and a couple photo documented builds.
