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.

    So This past weekend we poured the structural hearth. FB boards arrived as well as the Ceramic Blanket. Measured the interior oven space ,minus the width of the bricks on each side and have a 32" interior circumference..I hope I don't sound really silly now but I need someone to clarify how I will come to an 18"
    dome height when constructing the courses, is there a formula to use?
    I am attatching some build pics!

    Re: New Progress

    Nice progress on the hearth. I am sure you will get loads of opinions on the height issue.

    Assuming you mean the interior height, then I think 18" is pretty tall for a 32" diameter (16" radius) oven (also assuming circumference was a typo ). I have a 39" diameter build and it's going to be 18" tall at the center. Lower is better for pizza cooking - as it reflects more heat back.

    If you really want an 18" high oven, then I suggest you start with a 4.5 inch high soldier course, which will give you a vertical wall at 2" above your floor. Then mount your IT on a 2" high block in the center and using that you'll still get a 16" radius on your dome with an 18" tall center


    If you want to build a 16" high center, then the you can get a pretty good hemisphere by using a center mounted IT with a 16 inch length. Your oven may be a smidge taller to account for the height of the plywood under your IT.

    Also - you can use sketchup to make a profile view of your dome and you can figure out how many chains you'll need to get to the top.

    Oh, and going foreward you might want to think about consolidating all your updates to a single thread. That way people can keep track of where you are.
