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.

    does fire come out of the chimney when fireing the oven? i have a roof from palm leaves so would be good to know...

    Re: chimney

    Well, that would depend on how tall your chimney is, but usually no flames come out... what does come out though is very hot air and maybe some sparks, so a palm leaf roof sounds like a major accident waiting to happen.

    What you need to do is make a taller chimney that goes through the roof and above it, with a really good layer of insulation where the roof and chimney meet.

      Re: chimney

      Our building code (with almost always non-combustible roofing materials) calls for a chimney two feet above anything within ten feet. We also have elaborate requirements for clearance to combustibles (two inches from the exterior of the chimney, even thought the exterior of most chimney systems remain cool to the touch.) You are going to want a super spark arrestor on the top of that chimney at the very least.
