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.

  • 28" Phoenix, AZ

    Hey all,
    Been on this site for a while now researching tons, it is a priceless resource! So I am building a 28" pompeii oven in my back yard. Something unique about it is that I am building it on an angle iron steel stand, which I had welded for me by a local guy. The reason that I am doing it that way is because I am currently renting, and have and will be putting way too much into this bad boy to leave here when I leave at some point. I ordered wheels for the frame, which I will put on via a 5/8" steel rod I am going to bore through legs. Once thats done, I will cut the legs, and boom, it's coming with me! I figure I can winch it onto a trailer.

    Anyways, the project is coming along great! Having a blast doing it and figuring out new things as I go along. Here are some pics!

    So, it's steel, concrete or vcrete?

      So the stand I had welded is 2" 3/8" thick angle iron. The stand has 3 pieces of angle iron running across it for support. I placed a piece of hardibacker, and poured a 2" thick concrete base. On top of that, I poured 4" of perlite and portland, and placed the cooking floor on top of that. I am using the classic mix as my mortar. I plan on using 8lb 1" thick ceramic blanket and some more perlite and portland mix on top of that to insulate it. I got a ss duravent chimney pipe and a sweet metal best cap on the way. Still brainstorming my finishing options. My wife's father was a ceramist, and made great raku pottery for a living, so I am kind of inspired by that to so something cool!

        Which part of Phoenix are you in? The roof tile, stucco, and window on the house next door look very familiar.
