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.

    If the door is installed before the chiminey . how would the oven get a draft if the door is closed?

    It doesn't - the door is there to retain the existing heat.

      If you have the door closed to keep the heat in, then you will obviously have no fire. Good for smoking your food though.
      Put the door on the wrong side of your chimney and you will not be able to keep the heat within your dome!

        Essentially two ways to cook with the oven. Door stays open for cooking with the fire going (ie pizza). Once the fire burns out or is removed, the door is used to retain the heat for hearth style cooking (ie, bread, roasts, etc)

          Ok to answer your question if you need to control burn an adjustable vent can be added to the door at bottom to slow down air flow to reduce burn. This is accdording to FB build instructions.

          The only time I could imagine wanting to do this is for smoking.

              I always use the damper in the door when cooking.....I never thought about it but I always put my door back on when cooking pizzas too! Guess I didn't know any better??

              When roasting I will also dial back the chimney damper for fire control and wood conservation and smoking too.

              Are most Pizzas cooked without a door?
              DUH...better try that for more flames!

              still, I think the door allows me to keep the oven hotter when I want.....less cold air rushing in unabated?

              still crazy after all these years.....

                Well, put me in for a third way as I'm always right between these two....

                ....door on oven, fire burning inside. Hotter for pizza, cooler for the roasting!

                  Make up your mind SJ. Hotter or cooler? Pizza with the door out for me. I've yet to try cooking anything else with the fire burning. Any recommendations for a frist try?

                      I tried that dirty steak of Jim's the other day... Well actually I just flung a piece of meat on the glowing coals, no idea if its anything like what's on the video... BUT it was great fun! Tasted good, too. Nice and smoky.

                        not much chance of that george!


                        nothing else with the fire burning????? Almost everything I've cooked is with a fire burning George!!!!

                        I think I've only pulled the fire out once for bread. Sometimes the more I read the less I know
