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.

    I own a pizzeria in tuscaloosa, al. I use 2 seven foot refractory wood ovens. I put them together from kit form 12 years ago. They always worked well until a few months ago. One started smoking, and upon further investigation, I found that my vaultstones in that oven had "walked" apart. I've dismantled the whole thing, and here is my concern:
    I dont know how clean I have to get the floor tiles before reinstalling them. They all have a layer of adhesive from the original installation bonded to themselves. (They were all just floating on the slab.. they werent bonded to the concrete pedestal at all.) How do I ensure they bond upon reinstallation? What material should I use to set them?
    Ok..
    .. thats enough for now..

    Re: please help

    Photos please but it sounds like you have no insulation under your oven floor and since there is none and you have taken it apart this would be a great time to add some.

    I am not sure what vault stones are please indicate where they are in the oven.

    We typically refer to

    structural layer - the primary slab below the entire oven
    Floor insulation - the insulating layer directly below the floor and on top of the structural layer
    Oven floor - typically not bonded to anything to allow free expansion and contraction due to temperature.
    Oven dome - this could be a barrel or igloo style or a variation of one of the other.
    Dome insulation - insulation over the dome
    Weather proofing - either a concrete/stucco or some type of house. Since I assume your ovens are inside a building the weatherproofing is probably more of a decorative or metal housing.

    Because you are new to the site any photos you post here will most likely go into a review state for a day or two - spammer filter by Forno Bravo

    Please try to provide more info and photos or links to photos you might have on your company web site.
