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.

  • How long did it take you to build your oven?

    I am curious about the time it takes people from start to finish. My brother and I built our first one in 8 days. Two tow build the base, three to build the dome, two to insulate and stucco, and one to tile the base. There was also a day after that we used to clean up the area, install the soapstone cooking surface, and build the aluminum door.
    How long does it take everyone else? I don't know if I can post pics on here, but I have them on face book. Thanks oven builders.

            If you count all of the research, building tools, excavating, finding materials, purchasing tools equipment and the like I am over a year now and just poured my foundation yesterday. I figure it will take me another two months to complete. Here is hoping that is a good estimate.

              It took me 8 months to finish the oven, 4 more to do the prep area with sink, and tile. But it was the first time I had done any of this so I was slow. I only worked on weekends and took about a month break from the oven over the holidays.

                Almost 2 years, so far, but I built the oven itself in a couple of days. The rest is fenestration.

                  Steven,

                  Were you and your bro moving so fast that you completed the dome and enclosure you forgot to install the soapstone floor? Can't get into Trimwerkson Facebook. Would love to see your build pics here.

                    Lol. No. We put the soapstone in afterwards. We make a template, have it cut and then install it.

                      I made it so anyone could get to my Trimwerks page now and added more pics.

                        From the day I took down the fence to the day I laid keystone about 1 1/2 months. Been cooking in it since about 2 weeks after that. It's been more than a year since the keystone and I'm still not done with the trim work. Regular life gets in the way but I am still makeing pizza weekly.

                              I saw it on FB Trimwerks. Nice job, I think your faster than most people Steve. You obviously are a pro. Everyone should not expect to do their oven in 8 days...start to finish. Hell, I built mine almost a year ago and I still don't have the finish coat done. I think there is a tendency for the priority to go to cooking pizza rather than finishing the oven.

                              I did get the additional perlite I needed to finish it off recently. So I will finish it soon. I am using it in my restaurant and am getting tired of looking at the concrete.
