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.

  • ciao amici

    I went to Italy with my father about 15 years ago and it was there that I remember seeing my first 'forno a legna' or WFO....it was in the kitchen of my dad's cousin and it was a marvel to look at... although they had a modern oven and stove, the WFO was what they used most.....the smells and aroma eminating from that kitchen....and the fresh cooked bread...out of this world!!!!!!!
    I think that was the moment!!!!

    It has taken many years and many things have changed but I have come to the point where I want to experience it again....and again......and again!!!!!!!
    and so like many of you my journey begins.......

      Re: ciao amici

      This is why I built mine, and building another one now. I remember as a kid, my mom used to ask me to fire up the clay/brick oven outside behind the kitchen, almost every day, and she used that oven not only for bread, but also for cooking meet and vegetables. So, When I had the opportunity I decided to build one.

      You will enjoy this experience, please post photos whenever you can.
      a piu tardi

        Re: ciao amici

        thanks Eddie and George
        this truly is the beginning....I am just trying to source all the material first with a projected construction date of May 2011(yeah it takes a while for the ground to thaw up here...LOL) . I have decided on the design and have already began to stockpile some concrete block for the foundation. Thanks to Jurrasicjockey for providing me with some firebrick and some insight into construction. I can't wait ....the anticipation is killing me!!

          For materials check these out:
          1. Firebrick, masonary products, clay flue pipe, brick sand, sand/gravel mix, vermiculite -> Bernardi Building Supply

          2. Insulating hearth fibreboard and insulating blanket - Alphatherm Inc (Ask for Elvis as he has helped many a WFO builder and can get you the proper products. I used KFAC-19 under my hearth)

          Good Luck

                Yup. I have bought from Mason's before as well. But this past summer my dad decided to build an oven and so I did some digging and Bernardi's prices were good. Still went to Mason's for the exterior bricks for the facade.

                Good luck

                  Oh and I forgot. If you are making your own homebrew and need fireclay, Check out Tuckers Pottery.

                  Home

                  I used Hawthorne Fireclay.

                    Re: ciao amici

                    is it better to go with the homebrew mixture or the pre-mixed mortar for alphatherm???

                      Re: ciao amici

                      I've used both. Actually come to think of it, I used the pre-mixed from alphatherm and buttered the inside edge of the bricks for the dome and then used homebrew to fill in the gaps in the back side because those gaps are wider and the pre-mix is pretty expensive. Worked OK for me. Just make sure you get the air dried pre-mix not the heat set kind. If memory serves me the air dried stuff is not water soluable when dry. Not that you'd be getting any water in the oven when done, but more peace of mind.
