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.

  • 24" Oven Okay?

    I was going to get my first pizza oven soon, and I was thinking about getting a 24" oven. Is this big enough for someone that wants to make pizzas relatively fast and easily?

    Thanks!

    Hi
    Most ovens take around the same time to heat up, oven size is all dependent on how many pizzas you need to do at one time and what other things you intend to cook.
    You can cook other stuff in them besides pizza......

    There are a few small oven owners on the forum so Im sure they will chime in.

      24" is on the smaller side of the norm here, but the people who have the small ovens like them just fine. What kind of oven are you considering, home made, or precast....?

        I was thinking about the Mario Batali Amici by Chicago Brick Oven, what do you guys think about that oven? Would the fire be far enough away so the crust wouldn't get burnt?

          lots of people say they wished their oven was bigger, but having built a small oven I believe the benefits of small outweigh their shortcomings. A small oven is easier, quicker and cheaper to build. You don't need a bomb shelter to house it and it won't take up half your backyard.Most people also tend to cook one pizza at a time as it is the preparation that takes longer than the cooking. My oven is only 21" and I can cook pizzas for a party of 30 quite comfortably. larger parties are more difficult, but I have done up to 70. We also find it is perfectly adequate to cook roasts and bread for the family. A small oven will use way less fuel as the consumption is related to the chamber volume. ( you can do the maths), but a 20% increase in diam is a 100% increase in volume.

              The oven you mention is roughly the same as this oven. . I suppose the shipping costs might make the difference to you.

                  I was looking at it from Outdora for about $3600 with free shipping. Is that an okay price? Thanks for all your help!

                    The only two concerns I would have about this oven are, the flue appears to be inside the oven chamber which will significantly reduce the ability to use the oven for other than high heat - think pizza not bread applications. There appears to be a damper but it is unclear. This would help a little on the heat loss but not much.

                    The other item is that there is no mention of insulation and that would be nice to know if there is any and what type. And thickness.

                    The oven has a metal enclosure but based on some of the comments by the manufacturer I would be very diligent about moving it inside or have it covered when it rains or Snows.

                    They indicate it should be protected in inclement weather.

                    I really like the size of my 42 inch oven but there is no way you could put it on wheels.

                        I second that motion and will add this: The pride of DIY (with a lot of research and a little input from the experinced WFO builders on this forum) will go a long way
                        I'm in the process of building my oven. It is hard for even me to believe that I have given up riding on some real pretty days just to get to back to that oven
