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.

  • Commercial pizza oven stone

    I have founf a stone out of a commercial pizza oven. 48"x40"x1.5" would these make a good floor in a wood fired oven?

    Wow, that sounds like a good find. I'm guessing by the dimensions the pizza oven was gas-fired. I would examine it for wear, especially cracks. Since it is one piece, it will be near impossible to replace if it ever fails unless you first cut it into lengths that will fit through the oven door. (This is what I did on my soapstone floor slabs, which are rediculously heavy but I have a cool idea to easily get them out if I ever need to).

    Since the floor is only 1.5" thick, you might want to place it on a 2.5" layer of firebrick, and supplement the under-floor insulation just a bit.

      I put a pizza stone in my first oven, thinking that I could brush the coals and ash away to be left with a slightly raised cooking surface. With a fire lit directly on top of it , it simply cracked right down the middle. Too much sudden heat for it to handle presumably. A wood fire is way more powerful than a gas burner and the pizza stone too thin. Mine was only about 10mm thick, you maybe luckier with yours.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
