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.

  • Sizing question based on a 64"x64" base

    So I have built a 64"x64" base out of concrete block and I'm getting ready to work on the slab. I was going to build a AS oven, but now I am think of doing a Forno Bravo. What is the largest oven model that I can build?

    The installation PDF says the Casa 100 needs a 58"x66" hearth. It seems that my base will be fine, anything I should be aware of?

    You can fit a 36 inch pompeii on a 64 inch square slab, that's what mine is. A 42 inch will be a really tight fit- 42 (floor)+9 (brick walls, 2 at 4.5)+2 (blanket, one inch)+8 (vermicrete, 4 inches) leaves 3 inches (1.5 inches per side) left over. If you do an igloo, you can stucco in 1.5 inches, but I don't think you could do anything else. (Of course, I don't know about the casa ovens at all, just the homemade ones.)

    It's really too close for my taste- "theoretically" fitting on the slab is one thing, but there are a few places you could go awry.... Is a 36 big enough? Well, I hope so, for my own sake! I suppose if you were doing a whole lot of large scale baking a 42 would be better, but looking inside my 36, it's really big in there, and geez, once the fire's out, I could get enough bread in there for an army.

    I also think you'll have to put the oven on the corner angle or you don't have enough room to get your arch and vent on- and that rules the 42 out, I think.
