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.

  • Location of Pizza oven - considerations

    I've been thinking about building an oven for quite some time.

    I'm in the material scrouging mode right now and have found all the block I need through my contractor friends. They call me when they have some scrap to clean up. Now to find rebar and mesh....

    But, I am now past the point of no return - my wife is sick of seeing the pile of block in the yard. The ground is soft and I'm going to get started!

    My masterplan includes a patio with outdoor kitchen centered on the back of the house.

    I was going to incorporate the oven into the outdoor kitchen, but now I'm afraid that the oven will create a ton of smoke that will send all my guests on the patio and deck home smelling like smoke.

    Anybody out there have some guidelines about oven placement (Distance from house, from outdoor kitchen, etc.)? Do I just need to put a really tall chimney on the oven?

    Pizza ovens aren't smokey

    Hey Christo,

    I just saw this posting, and see that we all overlooked it.

    You don't have to worry about smoking out your guests. Pizza ovens put out a little smoke when they are heating up, but after the fire is going they only exhaust hot air. It's like a catalytic converter that burns the smoke to reduced particulates. The pizza oven gets, and cooks, so hot that wood burns very cleanly, and leaves very little ash. In that way, it is very much unlike a fireplace. As you are likely to have started firing your oven before company even arrives, no one will see much smoke.
