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.

    I would be surprised if turf / peat got hot enough to do the job.

    I can't see it doing any harm though.

    Give it a try and let us know.

      Interesting question as my next project may be to make scotch. I'm thinking of using my wfo as the vehicle to burn peat and thereby smoke the malt to kill it and impart the peaty flavor to the malt.

      I can't imagine buring peat/turf should cause any problem whatsoever in a wfo.

              hi cat and welcome to oven heaven.... i am in wexford ireland . half way tru my build... thinking about the turf it would hold the heat in your oven over night to cook in it next day . so if it does not get up to temp with your first trial . you could go back to timber and wen finished cooking pizza stick in a pile of turf . so even next night wood be real easy to get it up to 600.C .. only down side to turf is all that fine ash.. which is good for your garden.. maybe one of them hoovers for ash would help with removel of that light dust.. think food might taste dusty.. ah well let us know how you get on with food also temp and time it takes to heat and how long it keeps heat . happy fireing ... john
