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.

  • Hybrid Gas/Wood Oven.

    Hello, I am a newbie to this forum was hoping to get some feedback on a gas/wood hybrid outdoor pizza oven. I have filed the necessary paperwork with the war department and have received the green light from the wife for my outdoor pizza oven. Utopia!

    I love the traditional wood fired oven but I am thinking I would like a gas/wood hybrid. I am hoping to get some thoughts on this type of system. Does anyone have one? Pros/cons? Any information would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, John

    Gas in home pizza ovens is officially discouraged. Unlike an open barbeque, gas can accumulate in the closed dome and explode on ignition.

    Gas fired commercial pizza ovens have elaborate and expensive safety systems, and are used by professionals in a commercial kitchen. A back yard with kids running around is a different picture.

    There's also the small matter of efficiency. Firewood is BTU rich, and is ideal for the occasional firing of a small oven. Gas is good for keeping an already hot oven up to speed, but not so much for firing from cold.

    Some members have used gas weed burners to get their ovens going, but in this case, both the propane tank and the burner are stored well away from the oven when not in use.

      Here's one way you could do it in a safe, UL approved manner:
      Modena120G 47" Gas, Gas/Wood Pizza Oven :: Commercial Pizza Ovens :: Forno Bravo Store

      But I have a hard time seeing one of these in a back patio (and then there's the cost!).

        Hi John,
        In Mexico City there is place that sells that kind of ovens, they can combine gas and wood, they use a high pressure gas, they say that is safer that use low pressure, the bad thing is that web page is in Spanish.

          You will need to fit it with a burner that has a flame failure device and it will be required by law to be fitted by a qualified gas fitter. When I inquired about this I was given a rough figure of $2000. Having an old pottery kiln gas burner I tried fitting one on my first oven. It worked, but I gave up after the second use. If you're going to have a wood fired oven it's better to learn to use wood only in my opinion.
