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.

    Bad ideas never die. That's one of those south american hornos. When I was looking they were being imported from Uruguay, of all places. Who knows, if you plugged the hole, built a real vent, and swaddled it in insulation, you might even have a working oven.

      Is that a flue pipe or a sleeve for a thermocouple?

        It was explained to me once that many of the Southwestern and South American Hornos had that extra vent in the back to help get the fire started. Has to do with the height and shape of the dome. Apparently they do not draw well enough and need a little help, due to the beehive shape.

          Interesting. It creates problems with the inner dome creating pressure on the outer dome as it expands. I tried putting one in at floor level on my second oven. It has the advantage of being able to fire with the front door in place. Don't really understand why it's so high up, is it an intake or an extra exhaust? Looks too small for either to me, but if lots of them use this system, presumably it works.

            I would presume that it is an exhaust that allows a draw of air through the oven during firing. The subject was brought up by Dan Wing at a wood fired baking class I attended. He didn't elaborate much on the topic other to note that it was difficult to get a fire going in these ovens if the vent was not present.

              we have someone selling ovens here in the uk on ebay where the chimney comes out of the top of the dome. the sad thing is he has sold many.

                Don't put them down too much. I tried a central flue for my first oven and it worked really well. The main disadvantage is that quite a lot of heat is lost up the flue during fire up, which means they would use more fuel than an equivalent sized cross draft oven. But they also have the advantage of no front flue to work past which also saves space and they're simpler to build, plus no smoke at start up and they draw really well. But you do need a damper or cap on the flue to lock in that heat for roasting or baking.

                  The white oven on the Ebay listing is different to the one they are selling as the flue is outside the oven.
