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.

  • covering your oven?

    Do you try and cover your oven when not in use? Mine is outdoors and I'm thinking about something to cover the chimney....but do you cover your oven when not in use to "keep it dry"? Mine is coated with cement so I'm just wondering...Jim

    Re: covering your oven?

    Jim,

    I built my oven as a freestanding building with a house-like roof and a portico. It's really necessary to keep the masonry as dry as possible, so I'd cover it in some way, perhaps with a shed roof. I haven't found it necessary to cover my chimney opening at the top, but that would depend entirely on the type of oven you have.

      Re: covering your oven?

      Thanks....my oven is nestled into the corner of a patio area outside between two concrete walls. I covered it with a double cement layer to shed the water. The only place water can enter the oven is the chimney or door area. If I cover the chimney I can keep the water out there. The small hearth area should not be too much of a problem since it's in the sun all the time but now I'm thining about something there as well to shed the water and keep it dry.
