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.

  • Separating ash from coals

    What do you use or what do you do to separate the insulating ash from the live coals. I notice when pushing the fire to one side once the dome has turned white the coals get buried with ash. Do you use a garden rake to separate the coals and just sweep out the ash? Thanks in advance.

    I use the turning peel and turn them over.

    Edit- I msread you. A metal trash can with a hardware cloth sieve. The ashes drop through and the coals turn to charcoal.

      Hmm interesting so you remove the coals from the oven then put them back? I was thinking of doing something like that but on a handle. That way the coals stay in the oven.


      On another note at what temp should we put logs into the warm oven to dry wood? At what temp so it dries but does not turn to charcoal.

        No I remove most of them, leaving enough to keep a fire burning while cooking. I also usually put a scoop or two into the grill to precook some ingredients like fresh Italian sausage. Here is my oven while firing and then cooking last night.

              Thanks Tscar,


              I would be interested to see what others do. Ive tried the garden rake once. It worked so id like to see what other do.

                I keep the fire on the side, about 2/3 of the way back, and just flick the ashes to the rear of the fire. I don't clean them out until I'm preparing for bread. Then I scoop everything into my ash pail and put the lid on; when it's cold, I separate the charcoal from the ashes with a hardware-cloth sifter similar to Tscarborough's.
