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.

  • starting the dome, checking opening size

    Hello,

    Iam starting the dome i have been busy cutting away, these bricks are hard!. and I was just needing a little comfirmation that I am getting the opening the right size for my dome. My dimensions are..

    800mm internal dome size, 32 inch

    and I have calculated, with some help from the forna bravo plans that I should be ok with 420mm wide by 280 high, which is a 32inch oven, with an opening of 16 and3/4 inch by 11inch roughly.

    How does that sound.

    Can one of you wise gentleman assist me please.


    Regards Grant.

    Check the plans. The height of the door opening should be around 63% of the internal height of the oven. If it"s about an inch either taller or shorter you would not notice any difference in the way the oven fires or performs.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      I am neither wise nor a gentleman - but I can try and help!

      I have a 32 inch oven. My opening is 16 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches high at the sides of the front arch and 10 inches high in the middle. It works perfectly! Pictures attached.

      My build thread is here: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/3...nia-19283.html

      Good luck!

        thankyou, sounds like iam on the right track.

        I have another question, Iam bricking the dome at the moment, I have a large wet saw, so iam getting the cuts neat, is there a problem with it being to tight the dome?.

        Do I need to leave some expansion points?.

        Not sure on this one, when I say neat there is the odd little gap maximum 3/4mm.

        I thought about leaving a slight gap where it meets the opening arch? not sure.

        cheers grant.

          Hey checked out your photos, like your outdoor oven area, and the detailing on the door opening, looks like a big job, well done.
