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 to the insanity!
    After reading a lot of the posts here, I'm building a 42" oven. I figure it is large enough to fix 2 or 3 pizzas at a time, bread and a variety of foods.
    A key factor for me was the cost. You can save several hundred dollars using the 'low tech' insulation methods. For example, I put 5" of perlcrete under the floor instead of the ceramic board. You didn't ask about cost, so that probably isn't an issue for you.
    You mentioned thermometers, but I assume you were referring to thermocouples for measuring temperature. A couple in the floor (one close to the cooking surface and another close to the insulation layer. Similarly a couple thermocouples about halfway up the dome at two depths, like the floor.
