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.

  • small problems with the ebook

    Here are the things that I found confusing. I probably just misunderstood something.

    Page 13: first sentence, about the size of the oven dome "the nearest size that you reach without cutting bricks"
    However, page 59, in material list says: "135 fire bricks, cut in half"
    So do we cut or we dont cut?

    Another issue. The oven stand and foundation on page 13 are different on page 58 in material list. Why is that?

    I hope someone can clarify that.

    First issue: Page 13 refers to NOT having to cut the width of the bricks. Excluding the soldier course and hearth, the plans call for the use of 1/2 bricks, hence the reference on page 59 for 135 bricks, cut in half.
    There is much flexibility in building the dome based on desired interior height and width. The soldier course can be full height (9") or some type of modified. In my case, to achieve the desired height and keep my mortar joints between courses on the outside at a max. 1/4" (not necessary), I cut my soldier course at 5.75" inside/6.6" outside, giving it a ramp effect in setting the next course and starting the dome curviture.

    simplified - The basic dome utilizes 1/2 bricks for all courses above the soldier course. The hearth utilizes full size bricks. The entry arch area will utilize a mix of cut and full size.

        can't help with that, my stand and foundation are "custom".......fancy way of saying I altered the plans (wife wanted it as small as possible).

          I also found the foundation sizes, as you pointed out, confusing. What size foundation did you go with?
