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.

  • Curing oven over several weekends

    Hello,

    I don't have 6 straight days to stare at a fire. Is it OK to cure the oven over the course of 3 weekends? 1 burn each weekend day, increasing in temperature until the 3rd weekend?

    Thanks.

    Yes, of course. In fact it may be better because it gives the moisture left in the bottom of the dome and under the floor a chance to migrate back to the higher and drier parts of the oven.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      That's good news. I'm hoping to do it over two 3-day weekends (plus maybe a few small fires in the evenings between those weekends). Temperature estimation is going to be a problem. Maybe we need a scale of some sort:

      Day 1: feels quite warm if you put your hand inside the oven.
      Day 2: takes the hairs of your arm if you poke it into the oven.
      Day 3: takes the skin off your arm if youre stupid enough to get it inside the oven.
      Day 4: I'm not putting my arm in there!
      Day 5: small children spontaneously combust walking past oven entrance
      Day 6: Pizzas!
