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.

  • 'yard oven'

    Check this puppy out. A friend who knew I was interested in WFOs found a flyer for one of these 'yard ovens' the other day. It basically looks like a tandoor style oven with a pizza stone arrangement on top.

    I imagine it'd be a better tandoor oven than a pizza cooker, but I suppose if you keep the fire underneath hot enough it'd work. Stick a bellows in the base air inlet and I'm sure you'd get enough heat. Not sure about their ability to cook roasts or bread, though. The cooking space doesn't look big enough, and the lid doesn't look insulated like the base, so heat would bleed out fairly quickly.

    Overall, I'd say it's a nice alternative for someone with very little space and/or who doesn't want to go through the building process. Not sure about the shape. I keep looking at the picture on the flyer (the pdf) and thinking ... dalek. I'd be far too tempted to glue half spheres on the base and give it base-drum-stick 'eye' ... exterminate, exterminate ...
