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.

    What did you do for outdoor lighting? Did it work for nighttime pizza preparation? Seeing into the oven when you cook? Mood lighting when you eat?

    I am leaning toward putting a couple of post lights in the backsplash...

    What worked for you?

      Re: Outdoor lighting

      I'm working on my oven this spring. I was planning on stringing some white "Christmas" light under the Pergola. For the oven light I was planning on using a small clamp light with a flexible head (yet to get one yet).

        As luck would have it, I have an existing halogen motion light on the side of my house that is perfectly aligned.
        For interior light, I have a bucket of sawdust for Instant Lighting.

          I was just considering that question formy own needs today. Lighting of both types would be perfect. Something about waist level that shines in the oven without blinding those hovering around, and track or flood lighting from above to provide ambient light for the area. There are people who specialize in lighting alone. Pehaps you should consult a "specialist".

            A fire in the oven, a flashlight in the mouth and a bare bulb lamp....

            I'm still working on this one so hearing what works is appreciated.

              So happens that, for giggles, I plummed natural gas to my outdoor kitchen project. Now I'm considering gas lamps for light around the oven as opposed to electrical ones. Can't turn them on with a switch, but softer and way moodier.

                My plans continue.....

                I have finished my LED controller for the concrete countertops - I will have LED's behind marbles inside the the countertop and provide some cool lighting there.

                I have enough LED drivers available on my controller board to also allow me to replace some pavers with home made pavers with LED's embedded in them - they will work in concert with the countertop LED controller. Don't think christmas lights - but it's a similar concept - think stars and constellations and an ocassional shooting star across your countertop..... and patio

                I'm happy with my internal Pizza open lighting - but still need to work on my grill and countertop lighting - I don't want local lighting so I may use street lights at each end of the patio - draw the bugs away from the outdoor kitchen but still provide light. BTW picture of oven was taken at 9:30 pm without flash.

                I'm looking for ideas as well.

                  The full-time bakers (bread) around here seem to favor those halogen work lights mounted on a movable arm for their ovens (barrel-vault type). I don't have an oven (yet) but I'm very familiar with the flashlight-in-the-mouth method of task lighting for all my other outdoor cooking.

                    haven't built my oven yet..and not sure how i'm going to light that but it will be located just off the covered patio which has 2 jelly jar lights..one at each end which work well for grilling and eating..for mood i use the pool deck lights..the deck is located at the far end of the pool..i buried electric to the pool for the lights..the pump and a couple outlets underneath,,all gfci protected..with switches on the patio and on the deck..i lean back in my rocker..flip the switch and the lighted reflection off the water is beautiful

                      Christo,
                      Cool lighting. It's hard to believe the lights can take the heat.

                      BTW, I think I see some ash in there, dirty boy

                          Re: Outdoor lighting

                          We decided to go with the lights in the backsplash -- which will be good for preparation and eating, but not for looking into the oven.

                          Does anybody have a clip-on light that they use and like that shines into the oven?

                            James, what about the flexible lights mounted to the oven wall, that can flex into the oven for lighting when needed? This is similar to the oven lights you see on grills. I was kind of thinking about this while planning my lighting.

                              Halogen work lights made for machine tools are designed for rough service, and the bulbs are sealed to prevent damage from chips and coolant.



                              They're a bit pricey, but it might be worth it in a place subject to weather and swinging peels. Make sure you don't get the magnetic base model, which wouldn't do anyone any good here except Aaron4osu and his steel plate oven.
