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.

  • A n00b building an oven - Need some info/direction please.

    Hi all.

    I'm looking to build and oven this coming year, and I'd like to start it in the spring. I've done a lot of reading here but I'm overall having a tough time finding the most basic info for beginners. I literally know almost nothing about building an oven or the basic fundamentals used when building one (things like hearth construction, insulation type and where to use it, dome construction, ect...).

    I was wondering if there is any kind of basic "how to" info on this forum or any other reading material I can buy to help put me in the direction of learning the basics/fundamentals of oven building. Sorry if my first thread is rather cliche, and I apologize ahead of time if the info is right under my nose and I never saw it - but being such an inexperienced n00b at this really has me in the dark. I see a lot of newcomers starting build threads but how did you all learn the info on building an oven from scratch...?? That's the info I'm looking for.

    Any help would be appreciated, and I wouldn't be surprised if I have many other n00b questions in the near future. This is a project I've been wanting to take on for quite a few years, and I really really want to get it going in the early spring as soon as the weather gets warmer - I'd like to spend some time learning about the details for a while to give me time to make a decision on what I want to build and how.

    Pompeii Oven Instruction eBook V2.0 (pdf) :: eBooks & CD ROMs :: Forno Bravo Storeyou need to download the FB plans if you haven't. nearly all of the basics are covered and plenty of info to build a nice complete oven. Get that and read it and then the forum will fill in the rest that need.
