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.

  • Pompeii Grill in Switzerland

    This is what I've been doing when I couldn't work on my oven, just using up the left overs. I'm completely making it up as I go along, but the idea is simply to have a place to light fires or put the coals from the oven, and grill the odd sausage. I'm a bit intimidated by the other bbq/grill discussions going here , but anyway here it is...

    Re: Pompeii Grill in Switzerland

    I can't see it very well.

    Does it have an opening in the middle?

    How are the fires going?

      Re: Pompeii Grill in Switzerland

      Hmm, you're right, its not the clearest of pictures is it? I'll post more when I get a bit further along ...

      This is just the stand for the grill. It does have a hole in the middle, which is currently covered by the beginning of the support for a concrete slab. I've got a hood and chimney for it already, so all that's missing are the bits inbetween . The only thing I know for sure so far, is that it will have a brick arch as opening, just like the one on the oven but bigger.

        Frances,
        This is five months too late,but may be worth a thought.
        We use a 20L ss pressure tank from a water supply system as a "grill/oven", both at home and when travelling. Brilliant for two.
        When we build next wfo, we will most certainly build in a "Grill Pit", probably a cut-down 9kg gas bottle; maybe an old ss laundry tub.. Ultra important to have control of both air supply and exhaust. This allows temperature control comparable to electric stoves.
        I shan't waste web space with details, but am happy to help off-forum.
        Hope it's all good,
        Jeff.

          Hey Jeff, I didn't notice this here. The grill hasn't progressed any further at all, as I'm basically shut down for Winter.

          But once Spring comes, and once I'm finished with the WFO (like in a year or three) I'll get back to this. What I plan to do is have a simple wood fired grill. We have such fun lighting fires in the woods and grilling saussages on them, that I decided we need to be able to do that at home. But its all a bit low tech I'm afraid.

          Thanks for the input anyway!

            I poured the "hearth" bit... thing, concrete slab on this today (do grills have hearths?). With the framing adhering to my favourite it'll-hold-if-you-use-enough-duct-tape school of thought. I'm a devoted deciple, in case you hadn't noticed...

                ...maybe I didn't use enough duct tape?

                  Did you hear the report where they tested duct tape, and basically said that it is great for about 100 different tasks? Everything except holding metal duct together, where it does a really bad job. Too funny.

                  Frances, do you have drawings for your grill? I would enjoy hearing how you are handling grill height, air draw for charcoal, venting, etc.

                  How high are you shooting for the hearth? Lower than the oven?

                  Etc.

                    Wow, that was one fast answer!

                    Sorry James, no plans or anything. I'm really playing it by ear and making it up as I go along. I can't seem take a mere grill seriously after building the Pompeii ... well maybe a bit more so now.

                    The hight is given by the number of those large lime stones that were left over from the oven stand... the inside size by a grill by a grill tray thing my twins chose last year. Its really just a project for using up the left overs...

                    Actually the hight does need to be considerably lower, because I'd like everybody to be able to crouch round it grilling sausages on a stick.

                    But I'm afraid thats as far as I've got....

                      Maybe you need to switch to my personal favorite, 2 part epoxy.
                      My dad's list of essential tools for the home:
                      duct tape
                      2 part epoxy
                      WD 40
                      a pry bar, for things you 2 parted together you didn't mean to
                      and for some reason, he kept saying "a screwdriver is not a chisel".

                      (he actually does a lot of woodworking and boat fiddling, and has an extensive collection of tools and things, but all of the above can be found in the junk drawer at mom and dad's!)

                        I think we were typing at the same time.

                        Personally, I have to see something halfway done before I can visualize the end.
