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 Constant Temp or Bringing Up and Down?

    The curing instructions for the Primavera say that you should get the oven to temperature and keep it as long as possible throughout the day. I also read a post that says that you should bring the oven to temperature and then cool it. Is the procedure different for the Primavera?

    I tried to keep a constant temp on my primavera during the cure, then let the oven
    naturally cool overnight. On the next day the oven was still warm, and started for the
    next curing temp. hope this helps.

      No - the point of the cure is to drive moister out of the mortar. Your build uses a very small amount of mortar so you may not need to cure for the recommended times (although you do live in a humid environment, with really good bread)

        A slow and steady ramp up of temp (100 C/Hr) is the standard for new furnaces or kilns. But a new fire every day is more convenient for home built ovens. The gas burner method works very well or use heatbeads.
