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.

    Hi All,
    Greetings from the beautiful North Thompson River Valley. Home made bread has been a staple in our house since ,well, forever. In an effort to keep up with demands from kids, grandkids, neighbours etc. I am contemplating a micro bakery, and leaning towards a volcanic rock/clay combination for an oven. Sounds a little strange I know, but, the physics are there. The volcanic rock up here is used by my wife and her family (First Nations) to heat the sweat lodge. The rocks are heated to red hot many times over (without breaking), and hold the heat incredibly well. The local clay seems ok for heating. I have made bricks with it, and cured them in the sun and over the wood stove. Once cured it requires a good deal of force to break them. My main question seems to be, what kind of wood to use for firing? We have a lot of bug kill pine available, but I'm thinking that a hardwood would be better as there is way less pitch content. Any ideas? Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
