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.

    Hi,
    I am nearly ready to christen my oven and am wondering what others use to keep an eye on temperature.
    what sort of range do I need my thermometre to register? What are thermocouplers for? What is the most cost effective way to measure my ovens temp? I'm on a very tight budget. Total spend now £31.50.
    Thanks again for your help.
    Cheers
    Nick

    Re: Thermometer

    Hard to grab a infrared for less than 60-70 U.S. dollars.

    The cheaper ones go up to 950f. ... For a little more money you can get one that reads higher temps.(that's the way I would go)

    I don't have one, but I have a couple thermocouples and a thermocouple reader.
    But you can survive without either. ( i got them on ebay, total cost $50..)
    Just burn until the dome turns white, and all the soot is gone.

    Spread your coals evenly on the floor. Let the oven rest for 20 - 30 minutes so temps can even out. Then push the coals to the back, clean the floor, and throw a new log on the coals. ( for light and it helps with cooking the tops some)

    Then cook your pizzas, you will learn a bunch just by cooking often.

    Let me know what you end up doing, curiosity and all!

      Hi Nick...........an infra-red thermometer is what you want. Best place is e-bay. Check this link..............eBay UK Shop - VirtualVillage-UK-Alpha: Meters and Gauges, Accessories, String Instruments Just key in thermometers in search. You can get one delivered for £32. I know it doubles your costs but it is an investment. It will read up to 520 C or 968 F. The gadget shop sells the same one (in a different colour) for 10 quid more. As Dave says a higher temp would cost a little more.
