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.

  • Offset flue

    I'm currently finishing two ovens with offset flues. I believe there are some advantages doing it this way. Firstly the oven can be located under cover, the mouth certainly which is the most important part to keep dry. Secondly it negates the problems of penetrating the roof, namely sealing problems, having to use a double flue and roof corrosion around where the flue penetrates from corrosive emissions. The drawback is the look of the thing, I'm undecided about that, it does look a bit "industrial" The extra bends also create some extra cost and installation time.

    Re: Offset flue

    I have an inherent problem in my indoor build; the flue exits right behind the oven. I had two choices, either to make the offset like yours which will make the whole thing look "industrial", or to make the flue more aggressive with upright angles so it can be flush with both the oven enclosure top and the wall behind the oven. I believe the second choice will result in a hesitant airflow and will make the oven "breath" inside the whole kitchen. I installed a ventilating fan on the flue exit in order to force the exhausts to go into the flue but am not sure the fan will be always available (The electricity goes frequently being exposed to projectiles ) I'm no longer sure what is best to do.
    Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
    I forgot who said that.

      Gday
      If you were to use 2x45 degree bends instead of 1x 90 degree bend to get to the horizontal, then 2x 45 degree bends to get back to the vertical, it would achieve a couple of things.
      It would make the 90 degrees transition a lot longer and more gradual and make the smoke passage a lot smoother. It will take up more room in the transition making the horizontal section a lot smaller.
      I'm no expert by any means but smokes doesn't like to go sideways or horizontal it wants to go up so the more time spent in those 45 degree bends the easy the flow I'm thinking.

        A horizontal flue is a no no. Make it go up at an angle otherwise you will be depending on your exhaust fan to do the draw.

          Thanks Dave and david
          Your inputs inspired me to use a kind of flexible flue liner like the one below, I think it will enable me better smooth-en the draw, while trying to keep pace with the enclosures and hide the flue. If I find one I will use it.

            Re: Offset flue

            I am having the same problem and have been thinking to move my chimney to the middle or back of the oven?

            If I keep it in the front the chimney will be under my roof line and 1. I dont want the fire risk 2. I dont want smoke sooting up underneath my covered outdoor area.

            Has anyone moved an chimney to the back or middle of the oven? What was the outcome?
            Thanks,
            John
