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.

  • Chimney in dome roof

    I saw this type of design in a couple of e-bay auctions. The most recent I saw was ebay item number: 270143141801. The chimney comes straight out of the top of the dome. This seems to defy all that I have read about brick oven design.

    Wouldn't most of the heat escape before the heat can soak the bricks?

    Do you suppose this is intended to be a decorative oven (fireplace) or a real baking oven?

    and his personal page here
    Argentinean Campo Oven - A Masterpiece

    Seems to be a South American design.

      Yes.

      We had a builder here who's father built a central flue oven, it just ate through the wood pile, and never really got hot enough.

          Um, does it have a damper?

            I went back to the website and looked again.

            It appears that the chimney comes out the side at a height that looks close the the magic 60% height relative to the dome....

            Did not see that before.

              Maybe you are right about that, Christo. I saw one a few weeks ago that had the chimney EXACTLY out the top and thought this one looked "too close" to the top of the dome.

              It is interesting that it is just as depicted in the Argentine oven/empanada post (which still has my mouth watering).

              This was an interesting auction to watch - it closed with a $1750 top bid but did not sell because it was below the reserve... only to be re-listed and sold at $1500 Buy-it-now. Hmmm.
