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.

  • LP Burner, Thermocouples and hearth insulation

    Hi, I'm new to the group and am hoping for some help with my oven.
    I have poured the slab and will start the base this week.

    Q1. Is there any way to have the oven gas started/assisted? I have
    a gas line in the vicinity but can't figure out how to do it.

    Q2. Where does one get thermocouplers to measure temperature?

    Q3. How much heat loss will I suffer if I put the hearth on the base
    versus isolating it with rebar?

    Thanks for your help! I can't wait to have some pizza!!

    suzette,

    1. unless you plan to bake*a lot of*bread you won't need thermocouples.*after the first few meals you'll be able to judge the cooking characteristics just by "look and feel". even with the high temps, its not as easy to burn things in the oven as you would think.

    2. my hearth rests on the base (with a slip plane of metal flashing between the two.) when the oven is sealed and no further fuel is added, i lose (very roughly) about 50 degrees farenheit per hour. (walls are at 750 when i go to bed and about 350 when i wake up). hearth on the base is much simpler than hanging the hearth with rebar.*

    3. you will love your*oven !!! you should have it finished by early spring with no problems.*

    i have some pictures of base and hearth construction at <http://www.cpsusa.com/ebay/pompeiioven.htm>www.cpsusa.com/ebay/pompeiioven.htmRob
