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.

  • minimum viable oven?

    Hello folks!

    I've recently moved and in the back yard of the house I'm renting I've found the base of a fire-pit/oven (photo's attached) and I would really like to find the most minimal cost way to turn it into something I can cook pizza and bread in.

    The walls look relatively sturdy, the inside of the chimney as you can see is not in great shape and I am not quite sure what the base is made of/whether I can cook directly on it.



    I don't have construction experience and am a student so would like to spend less than $100 to turn this into something that does even marginally better than my gas oven with a pizza stone.

    The only idea I've cooked up is to fill the inside with one layer of cinderblocks filled with sand and cover it with a steel slab and build a cylindrical dome over this. But I'm not sure whether this is smart or feasible and would love all of the advice I can get.

    Thanks!

    Devin

    Sorry folks, I'm not sure how a picture of my dresser ended up here instead of the structure in my backyard. Am re-posting the pictures here and would really appreciate suggestions!

    Part of me wonders if I should use the side walls as a base for a barrel.

    Also, is there any point in using the concrete slab on the ground as a cooking surface? e.g., if I lined the walls with firebricks and then filled it with sand to create a rectangular dome which I covered with adobe?

    Thanks
