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.

    Hi Zaman,

    We are talking with our production guys and will get back to you. This is the first time we've seen something like this.

      Hey Zaman,

      We can't think of anything other than the oven might have been set down hard once. Still, it will be fine. We can send you a little patch it and it won't ever be an issue.

      You will be getting an email from our support folks shortly, and we will send the kit right out.

        I think you should Dig it out about one inch wide and 1 inch deep or to the insulation and then use poormans mortar and fill it all in...... then us a Stucco like Dryvit or STO and coat the whole oven with 2 coats....

        This should make it new looking again and stop the cracking

                I know you are good to go and can cook in it ...it seems you cracked the outer shell some how...... Just wait for the stuff James is going to send you and fix it....I would recommend putting STO or Dryvit on the outter shell....first you can pick what ever color you want and 2nd it will smooth out the crack and last but not least it will water proof it better

                  One quick note. This is a hairline crack in the stucco enclosure (not the oven itself).

                    yes, it doesn't seem like it would hamper the oven. i don't want moisture to seep in. the repair kit will take care of it I'm sure .
