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.

  • Chimney or no chimney

    I'm hoping to build a bread/pizza oven in my back yard. After reading many postings, I've switched to a circular design. My next big question is: should I make a chimney or not?

    One baker I know in Vermont said not to bother, in fact best not to have one as it just lost heat. But I was planning on a barrel-shaped oven at that time -- and I also had no plans for pizza, just bread. But now I want to do it all! And have changed to a round design. And can't figure out whether or not to build a chimney into the front of it. Any advice? Stories? Experience with both?

    Forgive me if there has already been much discussion on this matter. Just direct me to it -- I'm new to this forum business and wasn't able to find anything posted.

      Yes, you want a chimney. And welcome, and good luck with your project.
