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.

  • Broke Ground for Pizza Oven in Northern CA

    After careful planning, I finally broke ground for a pompeii 36" and outdoor BBQ.
    Attached are some sketches for what I am envisioning.

    Hi megganburger,

    Welcome !!

    I recently finished a 36" Pompeii. It was fun but I want to continue building and improving. I'll have to find another location to build it since the yard is crowded.

    Cheers,
    Bob

      Hi Bob,
      This is my first oven ever, and I am looking forward to get it going. The dig was quite hard but this weekend I am going to pour the foundation. I will post pictures as I am making progress. I do like your builds.

          That layout looks vaguely familiar

              Hello Meggenberger -
              Can I ask why you are putting in a bbq along with the oven? That's what we were planning to do, too, and then I was told that you can use a wood-fired oven as a bbq, too. (unless you are planning to bbq something like a whole pig, and it wouldn't fit in the oven...)

                Hi Meggenberger, PollyG,

                Yes, you can bbq in a wfo. I often use my Tuscan grill for meats using left over coals from a pizza cook. But, I don't think I would ever fire up the wfo just to bbq burgers or do light cooking. It is way easier and faster to light some charcoal or wood in a bbq pit to do some brief cooking like burgers, hotdogs, veggies. There is more room to use bbq tools on a grill than inside an oven too, not that it can't be done inside a brick oven though.

                I think you have to balance which is best for your needs at the moment. Your idea of a separate bbq is good. If you have both options available then you can make the best use of their individual capabilities.

                Cheers,
                Bob

                  Hi PollyG,

                  I agree with Bob. Sometimes you just want to grill and not have to worry about firing up the oven and getting up to temp. I'm also incorporating a wood fired grill along with my oven build. It's just good to have both options.

                  And Hi meggenberger, welcome to the Forum, and congrats on starting your build! Great plan and layout! Similar to mine as well.

                    Hi all,

                    New to the forum. I have just finished my oven. It is an igloo style and just going through the process of firing it up. I will try and post some pics when I get my head around the website.
