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.

  • Using the Oven - When???

    At what point can we start using the oven. After the dome is done? Chimney installed? Insulated?

    I ask this because there are 5 weekends left till Thanksgiving and 9 till Christmas. We really want to have the oven finished (insulated and everything) by New Year's, but family comes for the next 2 holidays. Thanksgiving and/or Christmas pizza...

    Any thoughts?

    Re: Using the Oven - When???

    I used mine some before I had the insulating vermicrete on over the blanket, and before I built the transition and put on the chimney. The vent front gets pretty hot. I think you'll have a hard time getting to pizza temp without at least the blanket insulation.

    Curing with the blanket on is a good idea, because you can pull the blanket back a bit to check for smoke, which would indicate cracks to fix.

    You can use it without a chimney, but it smokes a lot more. And when you put the vent/chimney on, you'll have to wait a week to use it again, and probably have to do a little more curing to drive out any moisture that got in when you built the vent/chimney. I did.

    Bear in mind that no matter when you use it, it takes a while to settle in. Mine still varies on time to fire, etc. But I haven't been able to consistently use it yet, either.

    I expect you'll just have to go by what you have finished, and when they come, how desperate you are to have pizza! I know my family is just impressed no end just by the oven itself, even without having had anything out of it. (the ones who don't live here, I mean)
