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.

  • How long can you fire for?

    We are having our annual get together in the summer and are planning a Pizza party. Last year was a straightforward BBQ. We start around 3pm and finish when everybody has gone, normally around midnight.
    People come and go during the whole of that period, is it OK to have the WFO fired to Pizza temp for 9 hours?

    Thanks

    Absolutely no problem with that...restaurant ovens do it all the time. Good luck and have fun!

      I second what Dutch said. Crank up the heat.

        Thanks for that. I hadn't thought about the commercial people doing it all day, good point. Just need some practise now!

            Hopefully wood shouldn't be a problem. I have a friend who runs a skip hire (not sure if they are called skips in the US? - giant trash can I guess) business and he has to pay to get rid of all the wood that is disposed of, so he is more than happy to let me have as much as I want for free!!
            Might not be so good for the environment, but I guess wherever he gets rid of it also burns it.

              Watch out for pallets - some of the new ones are treated with lovely chemical brews, and they aren't real wood ! They are compressed woodchip that doesn't burn.

              Find somewhere you can dry the wood - side of the house or somewhere sheltered. Some can take 6-12 months to dry properly.

              Cheers

                Peter,
                Thanks for that, I will watch for them. The last batch of wood I got was mostly 4" x 3" x 8' lengths, they don't look to be treated. I intend to get the oven to cooking temp with this type of wood and then cook with "Real" wood.
                My friend has offered me 100 50ft fir tree trunks I think I'm gonna need a bigger trailer! Not sure where I could store that amount of wood, but it should keep me going for a while once it has dried out!

                Cheers

                  They are called "dumpsters" in the states, after George Roby Dempster, industrialist and mayor of Knoxville, TN, who got the idea for a mechanically dumped garbage bin while assisting with trash collection during a garbage collectors strike. His company went to to market the system under the "Dempster Dumpster" trade name, which has since become generic.
