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.

    fireplace and pizza oven combo
    why would one not just use the pizza oven as your fireplace
    does it not gve out a lot of heat through the front door?

    It is warm directly in front of the door opening from radiant heat, but the door opening is elevated to about mid chest level to prevent back pain while baking. Your toes would be vey cold if you use it as a fireplace .

      I have seen some photos of lower than average ovens intended to function partially as a fire place.

      I don't yet have an oven to compare, but I like the firepit we have adjacent to the where the oven will soon be.

      I have a 90 degree counter tops on either side of the oven planned so that some of us can pull some barstools up around the oven and sip a glass of wine and get a little heat in the cold evenings ahead.

      It looks like most of the oven designs I've seen have pretty hearty entrance/chimneys - I wonder if many folks pull the fire to the entry way and use it as a fireplace?

        We've pulled the coals to the entry once to give my kids a chance to make smores (note to others, keep molten marshmallows away from your pride and joy). Even then it did not give out heat anything like a fireplace. I'm planning a separate fireplace on my patio to extend the season. If you are tending pizza in the oven you can warm yourself, but the oven opening is designed to keep heat in the oven - I cannot imagine more than 2 people huddled right at the opening could benefit.

          Keeping the firepit

          Thanks Maver,

          I'll make sure I keep the firepit in my plans.
