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.

  • kit vs built?

    We live in SW Va (near Roanoke) and want to put in a pizza/bread oven. So far we haven't found a mason who's done this. We found one who used a kit.

    Could the person who built the footer and box and flue for our fireplace build a pizza oven or is the learning curve too steep?

    What is the cost difference between making your own and using a kit? Is there an advantage other than cost on either method?

    There are so many considerations, it's a confusing.

    Thanks!

    If you are not into building it yourself, I would go with a kit - with your oversight a mason should have no problem putting one together - but read the directions and communicate with them regularly.

      "Is there an advantage other than cost on either method?"

      Either will provide a good oven.

      The kit method is faster but more expensive. The brick build is often the choice for the do-it-yourself type who enjoys building and learning new skills.

        I am also in SW Virgina. Check out your private messages. Be sure to check out the section on my WFO.

        I would think that if your not a do it yourself person and needed to hire a mason I would guess the price would work out the same.
