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.

  • Might be a stupid question...

    After considering all the options, I'm leaning a bit toward the Casa oven kit. Every time I consider the other options, with more brick work, etc., I realize I may be getting in over my head.

    Are the Casa kits as easy as they appear? I know it says it comes with "everything you need," including the insulation board and blanket, but what goes over the blanket? Anything complicated to build or can it be a simple stucco layer (not that I have ANY experience with stucco). Is additional insulation needed under the boards?

    Also, I happened to see a youtube video in which someone had built an oven on top of a wooden frame/table. Could I build a frame with a 6" base, filled with insulating material (including the insulation boards), and leaving several inches around all sides of the oven to prevent the wood getting too hot, and then put some heavy duty casters on the bottom? I figured the bases were more for support, and not for insulation. We expect out patio to undergo changes over the years, and I thought it would be nice to be able to roll it away when needed.

    Thanks for all the help and inspiration!

    It doesn't get much easier than a modular kit, and FB's are designed for simplicity of assembly. You have to decide on what kind of enclosure you want, and that could be stucco or something fancier. You fo not need additional insulation under the FB Board, but it won't hurt if you do.

    I suppose you could build a wood base, but I would go with metal. It won't flex as much, it's stronger, and it will weather better than wood.
