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.

  • We are designing a traditional Mexican horno. Sort of. . . .

    We are attempting to rebuild an existing "beehive" style, traditional horno. It is outside. It has been fired by wood, doesn't hold heat, etc. etc.

    I'll tell you what I am planning to and am looking for serious critique since Marilyn and I are stabbing in the dark at this.

    We are going to level it to the base. We will add a propane fired ring (24" diameter) and above that, a soapstone oven floor. We want to be able to control the fire via thermo-couples and a BBQ type knob/dial to set the heat. The dome will be vented and made of fire bricks. So far, so good, I think. I have all kinds advice, but not sure what to believe.

    First question: What type of fire brick? Heat absorbing, or heat reflecting? Second: Anyone know what they are called in Mexico?
    Third: it has been suggested that the bricks for the dome be on end. True or false?

    I'm sure I will have more questions.
