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.

    I would suggest you visit the FornoBravo store and download the Pompeii oven instructions and many of the questions you have will be answered...including many you have not thought of yet...you can get it from the store 2 ways...one is to make a donation to Habitat for Humanity of $10 or you can chose to get it free...you have to register in the store(separate from the forum)to do so and it is an almost immediate delivery
    To answer your questions though...I think you will need roughly 180 firebricks for a 36 inch and a good interior dome height would be about 18 inches...then the door height should be 12-12.5 inches...if you have the room build a 42"...it will not cost you much more... but it is tough to stretch the oven later if you need it a bit bigger
    All the best!

        I am in North Mississippi...about an hour south of memphis..quite literally one mile off of interstate 55...the 36 should do 2 at a time without much issue and if you hold your tongue right you could get three...but once you start into this WFO thing you will be surprised how many other things you will want to cook and ...you might just find yourself wishing for a little extra space...maybe at Thanksgiving or Christmas...my Dad is a musician...well sort of retired...he played every type of music imaginable and he loved Mingus...he actually was good friends with a guy you might recognize also...George Winslow...jazz pianist and arranger...played with a lot of the big boys like Sammy Kaye etc...
        All the best!

          Remember: a WFO at full flame will cook a pizza in ninety seconds. Two at a time means you're stretching and dressing a pizza every 45 seconds. I'm good but I'm not that good. I cook multiple pita breads at the same time, but they're smaller, easier, and faster to do.

              well Dutch let me first say thanks! and also thats cool to hear about ya pops ! my uncle, Emile Guess, BLESS HIS SOUL ! was a well known self-taught jazz, rock/funk and blues guitarist. born and raised in New Orleans. he played with Dr. John for many years, along with the funky meters, the pat murphy band, paper steam boat, corvettes, lime, wolf river band and many more. he taught me so much growing up, his favorite jazz artist was Cannonball adderley. but as far as charles mingus, he will always be a favorite of mine. But any way friend thanks for the help. and by the way i got the plans from forno bravo. i cant wait to get dirty !!!! lol ! peace bra ! -Lee

                Lee,
                If bricks are easy to come by and close (no driving), start with 250. I'm a little fuzzy on my numbers, but I believe I used 250 bricks for my 37 inch dome.
