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.

        Well, you can call me Richard (Robert). I didn't wake up early because I could not sleep. I exhausted myself last night. My camera's batteries went dead and I want a photo opp before the first cure. My wife is taking the oldest girl to school, then picking up batteries. Once the photo is done, the fire begins

              Ohh yaaa!!!!!!! Photos will come but the draw up the flue is excellante! I noticed that at 100 degrees the smoke would come out the arch and flue. As the temp climbed in the low 200's the smoke that does exixt goes up the flue about 90%. I am keeping the oven between 200-285. I figure that if I want to hit 300, it will jump to 325+ quickly. My goal is to maintain that medium throughout the day.

              My cord of Almond came this morning and it is sweet! Heavy too! The guys from the yard loved the oven, very impressed, and reiterated to me that any time I want scraps (nice ones too), that I can come by any time. What happiness to that? Almond, walnut, Oak, any of the scraps. I could load up my SUV easy several times over.

              I was going to continue with all details about the oven on my oven thread, but thanks to Xabia, it makes sense to document my curing on a curing thread. Thank you Xabia I will post the oven without curing on my other thread. My curing photos will go here.

              No cracks, no cracks, no cracks, that is what I repeat througout.

                    Very exciting indeed! Still looking for the photos....cool deal on the wood- glad that worked out for you.

                        Its Robert. I think Xjim called him Richard by mistake, then corrected it with an edit. I was just kidding around when I called him Richard. Sorry to cause confusion. Just being stupid... Its something I do quite often.

                            O.K., I got lost with Dusty......so really, who is this guy Robert that is trying to impersonate Richard? Or is Richard impersonating Robert?
                            Sir, may we see some identification??? Maybe a background check is in order.

                              Well, My first photo shows the oven with its beginning flames. Some smoke, but no biggy since at the low heat the smoke is not drawn up well.

                              My next photo is a shot of the scrap on the left that the yard says I can pick up any time. The right side is of old fence that I cut into pieces. I notice that this fence goes up QUICK. Great for getting a flame going, and to manage the low heat, which is needed for the heavy Almond.

                              The other is of my Almond, and unfortunately the other photo of my larger (60%) stack did not show. I will make it show tomorrow. What a beaute.

                              Now for notes. The first 6 hours needed regular babying to keep the heat between 200-300. The last 2 hours was way different. I could tell the bricks were starting to saturate heat at this level. I needed to move coals more than anything at this point, and barely needed to put any kindling in, especially the last 1/2 hour.

                              I closed up the opening with bricks, then covered all with tarps.
