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.

  • New Member Intro from NZ

    Hi

    Just thought I would introduce myself, I have been looking through the forum for some time and decided to register; I have some questions and want to bounce some ideas around.

    I see there are some other NZ based members on here and will be keen to see how their builds and the material sourcing has worked out.

    I'm from the UK originally and have been living in NZ with my family for 5 years now.

    Always been a huge BBQ fan, now into smokers as well the next obvious step is a WFO to complete my outdoor cooking options.

    Looking at a WFO for the whole range of cooking experiences; Pizza, Bread and keen on roasts and another options for the fish we catch here.

    Any-ways, early days and still very much in the research stage but focusing on material sources for a design I got from Forno Bravo....

    Cheers

    Welcome Nick

    You have, in my view, made a great choice with the pompeii oven design. More than that, you have begun to tap two enormous resources here at fornobravo: The pompeii oven plans and the corporate memory of the membership willing to help you along the way.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Hi there,

      I also moved to Auckland from the UK and in the last two years have built myself a wood fired oven. It took some homework and research but I got there in the end. I'm more than happy to chat to you about it if keen.

      Reply with an email or phone number if you'd like to discuss further.

      All the best,

      Neil

          Thanks Neil, that's an awesome offer.
          I'll PM you my details.

          Negotiating the space with the wife at the moment, but has agreement in principle to proceed to the next phase
          Putting a budget together is going to be interesting; finding suitable materials is the challenge...

            Hi Nick. Just wondering how your pizza oven build is going. How has it been sourcing material and what stage are you at? If you would like to get in contact I may be able to offer some advice. I am building one in New Plymouth, although it is taking longer than I was hoping for. Regards Dave.

              Hi Dave

              Not really progressed at all, my wife is quite interested in the project now.
              Where did you find your bricks from?
              And any other material you sourced :-)

              cheers
