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.

  • Optimal hearth height

    What is the ideal height for the hearth? I'm trying to decide whether to build it to 36.5 inches or 44 inches off of ground level.

    Any guidelines for what is comfortable? Elbow level? Slightly above waist level? Does anyone wish they had a higher or lower floor?

    It's a personal use oven, so I probably won't cause any ergonomic issues if I pick wrong, but would like the best experience I can get, of course.

    Thanks for your help.

    At 6'4", I set four courses of 8x8x16 block and one course of 4x8x16 block, plus four inches of structural slab, plus four inches of vermicrete, plus 1.5 inches of ceramic fiber board. Brick goes on top of the fiber board. So that's about 48 inches to the hearth floor, give or take. It works out to be just about even with my elbows.

      Elbow height or a little higher is pretty much the consensus. You want to be able to see the fire & pizza easily (w/o bending over too much).
