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.

    Hi Fergus,

    I can't add much, except that in our town with a population of 80,000, there are three different people who make a business with the mobile ovens. They all seam to keep busy at the various street fairs and such.

    Good luck with your business..

          Almost all successful mobile ovens use modular ovens: there are fewer pieces to vibrate apart.

              I think you would need a very soft riding suspension for sure......

                    If your oven weighs more than about 300 kgs then you probably need a dual axle. If you plan on removing the oven and you don't have lifting equipment, tractor with hydralics, or forklift, then you'll want it less than 200 kgs on wheels.

                      Hello Fergus and welcome to the forum.

                      Can't give you any 1st hand experience, but it sounds like a great idea. If you want some "food for thought" then click on the search category and type in "mobile pizza ovens". There are many,many different threads on making a mobile pizza oven.

                      Best of luck with your project........Terry (C.F)

                        Re: mobile start up should i or should not

                        Fergus,

                        Couple things to consider with a mobile, many of which have already been addressed. Personally, I'd definitely go with a twin axle trailer design, but be sure to look into electric brakes for it. These puppies are heavy. You'll need a V6 to pull it; SUV or pickup. I'm hardly an expert on suspension (other than MC shocks/forks), but it's worth reinforcing that you will need a soft suspension with lots of travel. More importanly, though, be sure to factor in that mobile ovens are quite top heavy, so lateral roll control should be at the top of the list, and be darned careful in sharp turns.

                            Thank for replies .Think you are spot on about the trailer design.This will be very important to maintaing the oven.

                              And remember, when designing your trailer, that once you start selling pizza to the public, you run up against a tsunami of food safety and health regulations. You will have to outfit your trailer with water supplies, multiple sinks, refrigeration, and on and on. I'd definitely consult with your health department before committing yourself to a design.
