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.

  • Convection for a WFO

    I was helping a friend cure their oven and we found out that we could get much more even temps using a computer fan with the double hot plate we were using for heat. I didn't think it was possible, but the plastic computer fan survived to an average oven temp of around 275. We didn't push it any further because, after we hit around a 300 dome, we starting burning wood fires (I'm overkill when it comes to curing).

    My friend would like to get a more even pre-heat by utilizing some form of convection, but, to hit the 650ish temps he's working at, the computer fan obviously wouldn't work.

    Doe anyone have any ideas? The fan would have to circulate the air in the oven and not introduce fresh air.

      Heat travels up, your oven walls will transport the heat again through the dome to the floor by conduction.

      That would have me thinking you do not need a fan....

      Just my 2 cents though... maybe having a fan indeed helps but I think it will hardly make a difference....
