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.

  • Oven opening into room or not?

    What's the feasability of having the oven opening into a room? We've just finished framing a sunroom and I'm thinking of adding a 42" Pompeii oven on the backside of the room, with the oven opening coming into the room. I like the idea of using the oven year-round without having to put on snow boots, but I do have a few concerns:

    Is there anything I should worry about with the construction design as it ties into the wall framing?

    Is it wise to fire an oven that could possibly be in below zero weather for a long period of time? Will the mortar/bricks crack?

    Will the oven generate so much heat in the room that it will be unbearable in summer?

    Can the oven be used as a fireplace of sorts for heating/ambience?

    Thanks in advance for your help. Wisconsin winter is on the way so I'll have plenty of time to plan before construction can begin.

    Mike

    If you build your oven into your house, you need to follow all building codes and run it by your building inspector. It will follow the same codes as a residential fireplace. I like the idea myself: it's a nuisance to trudge out in the back yard on these dark nights to cook pizza.
