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.

  • Using Vermiculite board as the cooking surface

    Hello

    Just getting to the part of when i need to decide on how I want my pizza oven surface to look. Is there any reasons why I cannot use Vermiculite board? I have all ready laid a layer of fire brick and was wondering to give a smooth flat surface to put a layer of Vermiculite board down before i start building the arch.

    Regards

    Jonathan

    Vermiculite is an insulative material and not suitable for an oven floor, both from a refractory and safety standpoint. You would be wise to read through the Forno Bravo plans to understand how an oven works and the properties involved in each of the construction materials involved.

        Gianni, you responded incredibly well - just when you thought you saw it all

        Jonathan, Without seeing your progress you need the board under the brick - that one piece of the puzzle is INCREDIBLY important. If at any point you are unsure, do what you did, post the question. It will save you time and money. As mentioned, read the plans and we are all happy to help. Thats what made this forum so great.

          Les,
          I consider that quite a compliment coming from a Pizzaiolo such as yourself! It's the guys and gals here who think outside the box who are responsible for pushing the envelope and up to the old guys to keep them all above board! Ha!
