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.

  • Granite for Oven Landing

    Can I use granite for my oven landing? What do others recommend? I have a casa 90.

    Granite is a good choice

    Hi Arthur,
    I think your question got lost in the noise, so I have moved it here, to the Oven Finish section. It's a good question. I think granite is an excellent choice for the oven landing. It looks great, you can color match, it's easy to clean and smooth for moving pizza and pans around. A number of builders have used granite for the landing, and I used it on my indoor oven.

    Highly recommended.

    The landing doesn't get too hot, not much more than 450F where it touches the vent landing, so the granite should hold up well and last.

    James

      landing options

      Extending past my firebrick of the vent I just have red clay brick, but on either side I have a landing of poured concrete that I pigmented to a color very similar to brick. It's less absorbent than brick but not as smooth as granite, and it's very economical. I think any material that can handle the elements would work well. Tile, including inexpensive granite tile, would be fine. I haven't had much trouble with staining of the concrete.
