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.

  • building permit required in San Francisco?

    Hello,

    We are in process of getting the Giardino 70 this Wednesday. I need to know if we are required to obtain the building permit for wood fired oven installation in the backyard?

    Regards

    Only your local city hall or code enforcement office can tell you for sure. All it takes is a phone call, or two, or three. You may have to explain exactly what it is, many have no experience with WFOs, then classify them as BBQs, which usually don't have any code requirements, except national fire code compliance. Do not take our word for it, make the calls and be sure to document who and when you talked to them.

      I called City of SF>bldg permit dept and Im gonna copy and paste the body of their response in case if anyone in SF isnt sure about needing the permit for wood fired oven in the backyard.

      "It is my understanding that outdoor barbecues, grills, ovens, fireplaces,
      etc. are not regulated by the Building Code and are not within the
      jurisdiction of the Department of Building Inspection. Barbecues and other
      outdoor fuel-burning appliances may be regulated under the Fire Code and by
      the Bay Area Air Quality District."

        I looked into it and RT is correct, they didn't have a clue. They finally got back to me and said to come down and give them the minimum $65.00 because no inspection was required - what a joke. I did talk to the fire marshal and the required setback is 10 feet from any combustible material. That is here, it may be different where you are located.

            In the city where I live, I was told that I did not need one. Was told to talk to the Fire Department and they said only requirement was to have a spark arrester on top the chimmney
