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.
The issue with water is that when it gets hot, it transitions from a liquid to a gas, and expands.. When it expands, you will run the risk of cracking a fire brick. OOops, so what, next week you can pull any cracked brick and replace with whole brick, or since it is on the floor, ignore any cracks...
To minimize this risk, I would start a slow fire in the oven - now, and keep it going as long as possible. The idea to drive the moisture out as slowly as possible. And then when the time is right, build the fire up to the big scary size to get the oven hot to cook the bird.
The other concern I would have is that the moisture in the masonry can cool the oven faster than normal. If you keep the fire in the oven longer than normal, I would think this will help to minimize this issue also.
Also, since you have only changed the floor, the rest of your oven dome will work normally, and provide heat for your cooking task.
Good luck, I think it will work out just fine for you...
