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.

  • Hand-held laser thermometers...

    Hi everyone

    I bought one of these a while back, and while I'm not in a position to use it in the wfo as yet (still curing), I hav messed about with it in the kitchen.

    Well, it seems very easy to exceed what it can read - even just pointing it into the open (electric) oven.

    Indeed, when I did point it at one of my curing fires in the wfo, it went into 'E' mode - ie too hot for it to register.

    So, do these things with different capacities they can read? Does a wfo demand the highest rated laser themometer out there?

    Cheers

    Hi Puy de Dome,
    I have a similar one but it has a range up to 500˚C which is the top end for cooking pizzas.
    When the whole inside of my oven is white, I know that it is ready to cook and I check both the hearth and dome temperatures. Usually, the hearth is 20-30˚C lower but can read as 'Hi' meaning that it is over 500˚C
    If I point it at the flame or the red coals, it will always read Hi so I only read the bricks.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      Hi Neill, just re-discovered this thread... I did indeed buy a higher-end one and it is far far better for my purposes.

      I was able to read up to around the 500 c mark (900f) without the reading going awol and syaing, 'Hi'.

        I always wondered if these things read a different temp if pointed at the white brick surface vs black. I don't know if there is an appreciable difference in emmisivity but makes me wonder...
