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.

  • Greetings from CT

    Hey All,
    Just joined, but been reading from this forum for a while.
    but as any newbie I have tons of questions and plenty of help.
    looking to start my build late summer early fall.
    Literally been cooking all my life back when there was no option to help in the kitchen when Mom was getting stuff ready for family dinnerbut been catching my attention more and more cooking using WFO and bottom line love it.
    Here to have a great time learning.
    Thanks.
    Dave

    Welcome D Rod, Something mysterious about WFOs. Start with going to the Newbie section look at the attached link. It is a composite of some of the best documented builds on the forum. Then ask away, for the most part you will get a myriad of answers and suggestions. If you have not downloaded the free Pompeli plans from our forum host Forno Bravo, then do so, it is a good but dated baseline.

            While I know some have managed to scrounge them for cheaper, $1.28 is a fantastic price for firebricks. I paid $1.69 a brick in Washington DC area and thought I got a reasonable deal. The Aussies have to pay upwards of $3 per. Presuming they were quoting you a price for firebricks, yes?

                Is that Stone Depot that you went to? That price is about right for CT.

                You can also try Better Stones in East Hartford off rt 84.
