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.

    Welcome sardblue! I believe you are the first FB member from Sardinia.

    While you're sourcing stuff, why not post some pics of the location of your future oven... is it going to have a seaview by any chance?

      Re: hello from Sardinia

      Glad to hear you've got "the bug". It certainly is a lot of fun. Once you start looking, you would be surprised at what you can find "locally" for materials. My oven is 42" (106 cm, I had to Google a conversion chart- makes me feel so international) but I have not finished or cooked in it yet. Also, the FornoBravo Wood Fired Pizza E-book that they sell has drawings in it of a 90cm oven and shows how 3 10" pizzas can cook in it with the fire to 1 side. I would definitely build between 90cm and 106cm (35.5" to 42"). Have fun and welcome!
      Ciao, Dino

            Re: hello from Sardinia

            Hi Sardblue,
            I purchased a fairly inexpensive wet-tile saw. I bought the 10" blade model and it makes straight cuts only. So when you see a what looks like a cut that is curved, it is really 2 straight cuts (maybe 3) that get you a curved-looking shape. We are only using 4 1/2"x9" brick so it only takes a couple of cuts to make that straight brick "curve". We ALL thought the same thing before starting but it turns out surprisingly easy and accurate enough for the "soldier course" of bricks around the floor. I think if you put the soldier course on top of the floor (instead of around the floor) it might be OK if straight or jagged corners stick out a bit but you don't want to heat up anything outside of the dome so cutting a "curve" (made up of a few straight cuts) is best.
            Hey, it's always nice to put your oven in a pretty setting yours sounds beautiful. Are the grape vines local Vernaccia? Take care, Dino

              Hi Dino,thanks for the quick reply,thats one problem solved.As for the setting of the oven, it sounds better than it is.The vines are local but not sure of the name,they are table grapes(or eating),the red is called alphonso levelle,we built a rustic looking pergola last year to grow them over,and so far so good,loads of new shoots.Thanks again Sardblue
