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.

  • vent design in this picture

    For all those with good vent design experience, I would like input on the following vent design for the attached picture. I really like the style and is very exposed appearance. It appears there is not second arch which is typically seen in the pompeii construction. I would assume in this photo, the designers have the first arch and then attach the vent to the face of the concrete board and exclude the second arch. Does anyone think that this vent set up would not work or that there might be issues with too much exposure of the oven since there essentially is no protection from the elements in the oven landing depth, which is much more shallow.

    Second and unrelated. Does the fireplace adjacent have a second vent system or would they be tied together? Also where is a good place to find plans for fireplace design such as this.

    Hi Chale,
    from the picture, it looks like there are two chimneys as you can just see their bases.
    As far as the vent design is concerned, it would and does work well. The only difference is that many people, including myself, prefer ta add a decorative arch to their ovens purely for appearance. They serve little other purpose.
    I prefer to make my chimney void from stainless steel in a chute or funnel shape to catch and direct the smoke and hot gasses up and into the chimney. Just make sure that the diameter of the flue is sufficient, mine is 8" diameter, 10 ft tall servicing a 40" Pompeii. Pictures are on my build.
    Don't be tempted to get away with a 6" flue.

      Really like the look of your oven, the "open" vent makes for an oven that looks more fireplace like, rather than looking down a tunnel. Glad to hear that it drafts well, since I have chosen this style as well and have had a heck of a time getting a vent made. I thought that would be the easy part while building the dome. What gauge stainless did you use for the vent?
