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.

  • Cracked cooking floor when uncrating

    While uncrating my new Casa 110 I cracked one of the 4 cooking floor pieces

    It is a 6 x 6 inch triangular wedge from the center of the oven floor.

    Can I just dry fit this piece and continue with construction? Or should I order a new floor piece?

    I would suggest contacting either James via private message or just go ahead and call someone in the service department at FB...they have a lot of technical experience and should be able to give you the best advice!

      I ended up calling FB for advice. They suggested that I proceed with the installation and fit the broken pieces together with a small amount of refmix. I did so and it looks fine.

      They were very helpful and reassuring. They also offered to provide me with a replacement floor segment at their cost.

      They said it isn't unusual for the floor to develop cracks after installation due to thermal stresses, so I chose to just go ahead and use what I have. I guess I am just starting out with a "pre-aged" floor
