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.

  • soapstone interior question

    Hi guys and gals,
    I'm starting to prepare for a springtime oven build, can't wait to get started. I have read through the forum and it seems that the consensus on soapstone is that it makes for a great pizza oven floor. I would like to not only make my floor out of soapstone, but also the dome. I haven't read any posts of someone using soapstone for the entire oven interior. Is there a reason not to use soapstone for the dome (and/or floor) of my pizza oven?

    Thanks for the help, sorry if I have overlooked a thread,

    Re: soapstone interior question

    The key to hearth materials is conductivity which controls how rapidly heat migrates to the surface to cook the bottom of the pizza. Soapstone is as I understand it somewhat more conductive than fire brick so you will probably want your hearth a bit cooler than a firebrick hearth. The heat that cooks the top is radiative and material is meaningless - and the flame provides most of the radiational heating anyway in a conventionally pizza fired WFO. The cost is likely to be substantially higher unless you have a cheap supply of soapstone!

    Good Luck!
    Jay
