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.

  • oven or fireplace?

    We are building a new home and I would like an outdoor wood oven that doubles as a wood fireplace. Does this work?

    A wood oven IS a fireplace, with a high hearth and a deep firebox, of special shape to reflect the heat down onto the food. Some people rake the fire forward after cooking to enjoy a decorative fire after dinner. Others have built adjoining fireplaces and ovens , but usually not right next to each other so the person doing the cooking doesn't get roasted.

    It depends on what kind of cooking you want to do, and how you use your fireplace.

      Triple threat

      That depends on your definition of a wood fireplace. You could warm yourself by the oven fire, then when you get bored of that, your oven will be hot enough to make pizza. Oh, your oven/fireplace will work as a barbecue too. Welcome to your new addiction.

        Marshmallows too

        After a night of cooking pizza, pull the fire forward and sit down to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the dancing flames. After a while, the kids even get to roast marshmallows.

        The only thing you don't get is a lot of heat pouring out of the oven. The insulation the keeps the oven cooking well, keeps the heat inside the oven -- so it isn't a great heat source.
