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.

  • Demensional question

    I have been looking for two weeks and have yet to stumble on a tread that answers my two most burning questions. One: is there a benefit to square vs. round design? IE, does one work better than the other?
    Two: I am not really limited by size but have yet to see any ideal size that folks are going with. I'm thinking about 42" to 48" for cooking floor. Any insight would be appreciated. This is my new favorite site.

    Most seem to agree that the hemisphere is the ideal form for an oven, both for combustion (remember the famous Chrysler hemi head) and for even radiation for cooking of the food. An oven with corners does not allow good circulation and will have cool spots, probably in the corners. My opinion on size is that smaller is better because you use far less fuel (less work) and use it more often, and it costs far less (less materials) but some others prefer monsters that take up half your backyard.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      And I think a middle sized one can give you the best of both worlds... My cooking floor is 1 m in diameter and (as Goldilocks would say) its just right.

      Here's a thread you probably missed:

        ndnman,

        How are you going to use the oven?

        The Pompeii design that is detailed in a freebee plan on this web site is the round foot print style, Italian in it's roots, and promoted as a pizza oven. This is the style I chose to build; a 36", it meets our needs well, and exceeds our expectations. We enjoy 'fire in the oven' cooking, bread, and long bake foods from our Pompeii.

        Allen Scott spent a good part of his career promoting the rectangular foot print "bread oven". I don't have experience with this oven but have read many users who loved their ovens.

        Either oven could be the 'best choice' for your situation based on how you plan to use the oven....

        So, what do you plan to cook?

          Re: Demensional question

          My quest started with a just a pizza oven, but after reading of breads, chickens, roasts, cobblers.....I don't want to rule these out.

          I have (or had) just about decided on a rectangle shaped footprint with an arched top. I like the looks and I can do it without cutting any bricks if I do it right, or at least very few. I'm thinking 40" wide and 50" deep or so.
          My main goal it to do it one time, and do it right.

          Thanks for the post
