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.

    Assuming all safety features are added (spark arrester, etc.) how close to my house can I place the oven?

    Re: location

    Since you can put one inside the house, you can put it right next to the house. You may have to retrofit the location to conform to local codes for fireplaces, though.

      Our fire department told me it had to be 10 foot from anything combustible (thats pretty vague since the wood you are burning is combustible). But after 10 foot I didn't have to worry about height of roof tops. Thats huge in regard to the flu height

        National fire code requires the chimney height be 2' higher than any structure or any portion of said structure within 10'.

        For me personally, that included my pool screen enclosure as it is attached to my house and the screening material is combustable.

        Local codes will vary (as in my case), but will be based on the 2 within 10 rule.

          Check local codes. You can usually do this online but best is to contact your local building department and explain what you are planning (and get a permit if required).

          This is important. Building a non conforming structure can void your house insurance if anything goes wrong.
