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.

  • Pompeii PDF Plans vs. Website plans

    Hello,

    I'm studying everything with a fine tooth comb before I begin work on a 42" Pompeii.

    I noticed the website and PDF materials lists show dimensions of:
    Foundation - 80" x 94"
    Block Stand - 72" x 84"

    Then on p.13 of the PDF and
    http://www.fornobravo.com/pompeii_oven/foundation.html

    The recommended dimensions are:
    Foundation - 77" x 86"
    Block Stand - 69" x 76"

    Why are they different? Is this an oversight, slightly different design or am I missing something?

    Cordially,
    Ken

    I think, It's not exact, but 72 and 84 are both divisible by eight. The actual measure of a concrete block is not 8 by 16, but 7.5 by 15.5 I think one may be a mortared dimension, and the other a dry-stack dimension. 4 and a half times 15 and a half is 69.75.

      Based on some recent discussion on some of the threads here your other option is to build it slightly big. You can always make a smaller floor and dome and have room left over for insulation. It is a bit trickier when you near the end and realize that you are tight space wise

        Thanks for the responses. I like the "build it slightly bigger" approach. Seems like I can design a block layout that will involve less cutting.

        I'll try not to make rocket science out of this and keep it simple!
