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.

  • Using Residual Heat?

    I have a 42" Pompei style oven. It is used twice a week for bread baking. Now that winter is just around the corner, where I am anyway, I am thinking about installing a water coil around the exterior of the oven and using the residual heat to augment our inside wood stove. The existing insulation is 24" of fiber glass batts , so the install would not be too difficult. Just wondering if anyone has attempted the same. any thoughts?

    Re: Using Residual Heat?

    I have heard of others trying this. There are several big issues.

    First is corrosion. Higher temps greatly increase corrosion.

    Second is that there may be a lot less heat in the oven than you think. Most of the wood heat goes up the chimney.

    Third is you don't want to boil water in the coil - at least unless you design for it.

    Fourth you probably only want to use it to capture heat after baking but that can be a problem for if the coil is empty it will be hot (and boil the water). And if you have water in it it may boil.

    This deserves some pretty careful thought and planning. The results can be anywhere from great to mediocre to rather dangerous.
