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.

    I am a contractor in the process of a remodel to an old bakery, in operation late 1800's to early 1900's. When the owner purchased the bldg, the back section was collapsed and upon clearing site to rebuild found a brick oven that was used for the bread bakery. he had it cosmetically repaired and plans on highlighting it in the restaurant he is putting in the building. I am looking for any info on this oven style I can find. I am not sure, but may be a type of gueulard oven. It also has a rotary table inside that was driven by large pulleys and belts and was variable speed by moving the belt on tapered wooden rollers. I am attaching pics and would appreciate any info anyone has or where to find.

    I knew I'd seen something like that before! Maybe the guys in this thread can help you out.

      I looks like the hearth stones are missing.

      The real art of conversation is not only to say the correct thing at the right time, but also to leave
      unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

        Yep hearth stones are missing bu the gear head in me is saying take looks of pictures of the gear works and then tear it apart. Carefully sand it and then if I was doing it 30 years ago I would put a heavy coat of Rustoleum on it. Today , if I was not concerned with The Antiques Road Show, I would get the metal, where applicable (not the gears) powdered coated. Leather belts can still be found. nice find worth the time to restore. If it is not well insulated and even if it is it will be a real tree burner!

        Keep us posted on the progress
