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.

  • Extending the landing to one side

    I'm planning the foundation size for a 42" oven, and I would like to end up with a small "table" area attached to one side of the oven (and perpendicular to it) for food, drinks, etc. Maybe 20" W x 4' L or so. I'm not sure if I will extend the landing or have the table below the hearth.

    But my question is, does anyone see a problem with simply adding blocks to the oven block stand for this table? (i.e., basically extending the front wall of the block stand off to one side by 4'.) So my square foundation would have a little pier off one edge, maybe 52" x 24", tied in with rebar, and then I could place a couple of rows of blocks to support the table. With lots of frost heaving here, I will be using 4' footings for the foundation, so I'll need footing(s) for this pier as well. Would 1 be enough? Or should I not have this table structurally connected to the oven at all? I'm new to masonry, as you can tell!

    My idea is similar to this, but the face of the block stand would extend out onto the pier on the left:

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Extending the landing to one side

    An extension to the side is very useful. If it has a stone top it can be your pizza building area. Just to be clear - this is off to the side: You don't want to be reaching over your work area to get to the oven.

    Is it overbuilding? Well, yes. A freestanding worktable would do just as well. Another hazard is that as soon as you start thinking on these lines, your project can grow into a full scale outdoor kitchen, sucking up unlimited amounts of time and money.
