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.

  • Possibly frighteningly stupid question about chimney...

    Should the door close off the chimney, or should the chimney be open with the door in place?

    A related question is this... many designs feature a doorway arch and a second arch behind it with a slightly narrower diameter... this gives you a nice surface to put your door up against. Does it serve any other function (other than aesthetics?

    I'm considering having an arch 22cm long (using 22cm firebrick) and then casting the entrance to the dome slightly narrower to achieve the same effect... is there any problem with this?

    If you place the door in front if the throat opening, your oven will cool down rapidly. Place the door on the oven opening, before the inside line of the throat.

      Ok,

      So with the oven door closed, there is effectively no chimney, right?

        That is correct. The oven door should completely seal the oven chamber.

        Doors are usually used after the fire is out and any glowing embers removed. Some folks may keep some hot embers inside for added warmth, however, with the door closed and the hot embers, the temperature will rise rapidly.

          Thanks for that.

          How important is it to getting the chimney throat adapter correct? They're expensive to buy... looks like I'll have to try casting one.
