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.

  • USE of NON CHEMICAL PERMEATED CHARCOAL in WOOD BURNING OVENS

    In various readings and blogs, I have seen where it is not recommended to use
    charcoal briquettes at any time in a wood burning type oven.

    I would like to better understand what the reasoning is behind this and if in fact it is true.

    I realize that "cooking" with briquettes would affect flavoring in the food, however, my thinking was to use charcoal in a fire starter to initiate the wood fire. Is this thinking flawed? Do the briquettes leave some sort of unwanted residual on the oven wall?

    Any advice and experience in this area from those more knowledgeable than this beginner would be of value.

    Good question, I would also like to know why. FB say use of coal or charcoal wil void their warranty, I wonder why? In the manufacture of brickettes there are some nasty chemicals contained in in the coal, uranium often included. Uranium and other nasties are also often present in fly ash used to make powdered cement. This is probably why they tell you to use a mask when handling the stuff (but nobody does)

      Coal burns at a much higher temperature than wood. I suspect this is why FB does not approve of it in their ovens.

      Wood (dry) 6,200 - 7,500 Btu/lb
