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.

  • Hi... im cooked.

    Hi there, just joined your awesome site. tomorrow the builders start building a wood fire oven in my kitchen. it will be built outside but the oven door will be on the inside. i live in Hungary and am struggling to convey all ive learnt from this site to the builders (i dont speak Hungarian). lets see what they come up with as they have assured me it will be able to cook all sorts
    i cook on a open wood fire whenever i can but this will be my first proper oven... cant wait.......

    Welcome

    Sounds like you have a big job in front of you.

    Your situation is challenging because of the language difference, but additionally, I'm sure your builders know how to build an oven that is NOT as efficient as the oven featured in the free plans from this site. Be sure you understand the requirements of the pompeii plans and follow the progress day by day to be sure each step is according to the plans -show them the pictures from the plans, that will help them understand what you want.

    One big issue will be designing the flu location as you vent the smoke away from inside your house. Be sure to keep the door height to 63% of dome height and enough flu area to keep the smoke outside.

    Good Luck

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Good advice from Lee, for sure. If there's anything you want to be absolutely clear about with your builders, it's NOT to scrimp on insulation or use questionable substitutes.
      Good luck with your most valuable endeavor.

        Re: Hi... im cooked.

        thanks for the help guys. - the builders have been delayed for who knows what other reasons other than cold and rain. things are a dragging, but they promised it will be finished by saturday....lets see!!! i will post pics etc of the build in another thread. (if i can figure out how to attach pictures)
        as my maths is also quite bad, maybe someone can help me out.... the oven door will be 57.5 x 49.5cm thats roughly 19.5 inches high. would i be right in saying the oven height would need to be 62cm (24.5inches) to be the required 62.5 % ratio?

        your help will be greatly appreciated..... thanks in advance

                If you have trouble communicating with your builders it may be best to draw what you want, most people can understand a drawing in any language.

                  hi... yes i have given them loads of pics etc. i just really need to find out if my maths is correct - eg. is 49.5cm - 63% of 62cm just need confirmation before i make a big booboo. they have promised to start laying the bricks tomorrow. the concrete foundation was laid out yesterday. the foundation is about 20cm thick and is directly laid onto clay soil. (the room is lower than the ground surface).

                  so please - if anybody can confirm my maths

                    Work backwards.
                    Your oven internal dome height is 620mm * .63 = 390mm for the top of the door.

                      i cant work backwards as my door is 49.5cm high. therefore i need to figure out how high my dome should be built.

                        Sorry, I did read that but forgot.
                        The oven internal height should then be 785mm. (thats a very high oven in my opinion)

                        785*.63= 495mm

                            you would think so !?! the oven is still not complete and even after showing them tons of pictures ,they still cocked it up.

                            ...anyway when its done i will modify it myself
