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.

  • WHere to position oven... City Codes?

    Looking to position my pizza oven in the right spot. Currently if I build the oven where I have chosen I think I will run into some City building or Fire codes. Anyone aware of the building codes for Brea, CA (Orange County).

    I have heard that you want to be 5", 3', and 5' (all different answers) from the property line. Looking to get an answer from someone that has been though this.

    The easy answer is just ask the city, but its the weekend and they aren't open. Anxious to start laying the foundation this weekend.

    Ask the city...don't do a bunch of work for no reason. I know you want to start but in the long run you will be happy you did your homework first.

      I understand, but have come across a lot of horror stories about being turned down on building the ovens in California.

        I live in Camarillo (Ventura County) and the whole process was easy and FREE. Went in and said I was building a Barbecue, and asked whether I needed a permit. They said no, but it needed to be zoned. The zoning guy asked a few more details, which I then told him it was more like a pizza oven than a barbecue. Come to find out it really didn't matter, answer was the same, keep it 3 feet for the property line. After a little conversation I asked if I could be any closer, and we agreed upon 3 feet from the inner dome wall to the property line. He put it in writing, and said it would go in my microfiche. Hope you get the great service I got!

          I never inquired about the property line but was told it needed to be 10 foot from ANY combustible material (ie. house siding in my case). I would assume a wood fence would come into play if that is the case. As mentioned, talk to the city. You don't want to go through this process to have issues from neighbors, re-sale, etc...

            Did they inquire about the chimney?

              They asked me about how tall the project would be and I said I thought it would be approx 6 foot. I haven't built my oven yet, just planning for it right now. The didn't ask specifically about a chimney, and I didn't offer to tell them. They didn't ask anything abut combustibles either.

                "He put it in writing,"

                Great ! If you can it in writing that is the best. If not, document the meeting/discussion with date, time and names and keep this in a file.

                Go with what your local building department says. Building without approval can lead to all kinds of bad things ranging from having to tear it down to voiding your house insurance.
