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.

    I was wondering if you square up the walls and put a arch roof on it would it still heat up and cook pizza. does it make that much differance in how it cooks wont the heat stiil bounce back to the floor.

    Sure, the properties of firebrick are such that retained heat radiates directly off the face of the brick into the cavity of the oven, whether it emanates from the floor, walls or top of the dome. The biggest consideration in dome geometry is the angle of thrust created by the verticality of the side walls. The best cooking pizza ovens are ones with low domes and a flatter arch to the ceiling.

      Re: oven design

      When you square up the oven, you end up with a square oven. What are those corners for? How do you get the ash out of them? If your walls are very high, you need to buttress them against the lateral force of the domed roof.

      If you haven't read it, and worth reading again if you have:
