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.

  • Insulation questions Premio2G110

    Hello,
    I am almost finished the hearth and my Premio2G110 will be arriving next week. I am planning to enclose the oven in a Gabled house design. As we live in Vermont I will plan to use the oven even in the depth of winter. Any suggestions to further insulate the oven or will the included materials/ceramic blankets be sufficient?
    Thanks,
    Peter

      I had the same question. I wrapped my Casa 100 with three layers of the FB blanket and then built a gabled house around it. Just to be safe, I filled the space between the oven and the gabled house with 8 cu. ft. of loose perculite. It was probably overkill, but my experience last weekend proved to me that the oven holds heat really well.

      Last Saturday, we fired the oven and cooked pizzas. I put the door on around 8 PM with hot coals inside and the oven temp was at 650. The next day at noon it was still at 475, and only fell to 450 by 3:00 PM. I had to open the door for an hour to cool it down to cook a beef roast. Once I opened the door, the coals started glowing again and the oven held steady at 375. I ended up cooking the roast with the door about 2" open (trying to drop it to 325), the roast cooked in 1.5 hours instead of 2.5 and I overcooked it!

        Hi m1mckinlay,

        As you noted, the coals came alive when you removed the door. Fresh oxygen rushed in to revive them. Most folks rake out the coals and unburned wood before covering the entrance, just to be on the safe side.

        Cheers,
        Bob

          Bob, thanks for the advice! Your post prompted me to do some reading on backdraft, and I'm glad to have learned the lesson via your post instead of first hand. I appreciate you saving me from an explosion!

              DocHop,

              I am also filling my Casa2g100 vacant area inside my gabled enclosure wiht fireprrof Vermiculite insulation I located at the local Menards store. I have set the oven and insulated it, steel frame enclosure with Durock cement board. My enclosure was a bit large so I am using 10 bags to fill in the open area. I will start the exterior natural rock effort this weekend and then begin the cure process. From the sounds of the heat retention from M1McKinlay it should work fiine.....once I am complete, oven cured, and cooking I will post back and let you kknow how it works out for me here in Nebraska....will be close to winter by then...

                very interesting post. is there anything else you can do as far as cooling it down manually so you dont run into problems like M1Mckinlay did with his roast?
                also, as far as a thermometer, im most cases is it detached or mounted in the brickwork?
                thanks
                Paul (planning stages)

                  Are you burning dynamite instead of wood?

                    Just be sure to rake it out first!
