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.

  • Question on Metal Liner for Oven

    Hi, I am new to the pizza oven design and have been doing research on them. I am looking to build a 32" domed oven and my question is could I build the dome out of 1/4" mild steel plate and then put refractory cement around it. I am an industrial sheet metal worker so building this would not be a problem. I have looked everywhere and cannot find anything about it. I am guessing its because most people do not have access to the equipment that I do so brick is the commonly used product. I work in large gas burners that are metal lined and they work well so I am wondering if I could transfer that to a pizza oven. The floor would be out of fire brick and then I would cover the whole thing with a metal enclosure. Any advice or thoughts are appreciated. Daren

    I would suggest you check out the "Other Oven Types" section and look for my thread "Steel Dome Oven". There have been several WFOs built on this idea. The problem of late seems to be the high value of scrap steel. The WFO I built as well as several others used hemispherical ends or halves of spherical propane tanks that were condemned. The result being the condemned propane tanks do not last long in the scrap yards. If you have the means by which you can fabricate a dome, I can attest that the idea is sound and the resulting WFO can be a crack free alternative to a traditional brick oven.

      Thanks Wiley, I did find that section last night. It was very helpful. I built the metal stand and pan to pour a floor in last night and am going to start the domed burner tonite. I will continue reading up on it and am looking forward to completing this project and using it. Daren
