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.

  • Indoor in pizza oven in old unused fireplace???

    I'm interested in building an indoor pizza oven during an upcoming kitchen redo. We would like this to be built into an exisitng fireplace (which we never use) that is on an former exterior wall (exterior until the garage was added). There is significant footings under the fireplace the extend into the basement (i.e. a lot of masonry!!). I'm aware of the deeper profile of a pizza oven versus that of a fireplace, but this is not an issue. We currently have "pizza night" once a week using a stone an reg oven. But with the kitchen construction pending, we want to do something more fun and useful. Some the question--the plan is to remove the hearth and firebox--how can we use the footings of the fireplace and the exisitng chimney to install a pizza oven? What more do we need to add for the supporting structure of the pizza oven? Insulation?? And just general advice : ) ?

    Hello Kathleen,

    It is possible and a number of customers have done it. The biggest issue to address is that the footprint of a pizza oven is much deeper than a fireplace. The pizza oven will take up some space in the room.

    For insulation, setbacks from combustibles and ventilation,
    Please download the FB Residential Oven Installation and Operation Manual from the FornoBravo.com under tech specs, Casa2 and Premio2G. It has lots of information on accepted building practices for indoor installation for the Casa2G and Premio2G ovens.

    If you have any questions please let me know you can always reach me at Heidi@fornobravo.com or 1-800-407-5119 ext 14.

      We saw quite a lot of ovens in fireplaces, while in France and Italy last year. Here's one that's an interesting solution. Note it does not have a front flue to work past, because it simply shares the fireplace chimney.

        You will also need to talk to your local municipal building department.

        Indoor fireplace design /construction is almost always closley regulated.
