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.

  • Black smoke...

    I am using my brick oven for a year now. Being a scout for over 30 years now I have the feeling that I am really capable of making a good fire. However, still at each reloading with 1 or many logs; after a few minutes a thick, black, smoke arises from my chimney. The smoke slowly dissapears after a minute or 5; to return at the next reloading.

    This clearly indicates incomplete combustion, but I am not so sure what to do about it. Should I change chimney or oven-opening sizes?

    Some pictures added below to give you a feeling of my oven.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Welcome to the forum, what kind of wood are you using?

      It culd be the crosote burning off. Look inside before you start and you will see that the bricks are blackened. You know when you have reached high temperatures when all the black gets burned off leaving a "white" oven (actually brick coloured).

        my first thought was "what wood"

        second is, are you putting a door in front of the fire before its complete burned down? That would also result in incomplete combustion.

        Or maybe not enough insulation or thermal mass?
