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.

  • Door closes off chimney

    What a dumb thing to ask. If I close the door to the oven it closes off the chimney.

    To cook then, won't the coals go out and then I would be smoking the stuff? I have looked everywhere for this answer.

    I built my oven from the directions on this site.

    I have chicken in there now but with the door cracked a half inch for air to keep coals going. Well, that is my assumption anyhow.

    Thanks,
    Ellie

    Usually, if you're cooking with stored heat the coals will be cleared out and door closed.
    If you want to cook with live coals/fire you will need to not use the door at all or regulate air flow by placing the door partially open.

      Here's the page you're looking for:

      George has it right: if there's a fire in the oven, you pretty much keep the door off.

        Thank you both very much for your help. I suspect that my oven is not getting hot enough and not holding the heat for very long. It has only been fired 5 times or so.

        I really do need to cook more and get on this forum more.

        Much obliged,
        Ellie
