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.

    Excellent article, dmun. Thanks for passing it along. Interesting that there are so many regional names for the same thing.

    If one were to construct a tandoor with leftover firebrick, I wonder what wall thickness would be optimum? Are there any plans out there that would disclose profile dimensions and the bottom vent configuration?

      His look really thin: I would think the thin dimension of firebrick would be close to the clay ones I've seen. He gives the dimensions, and shows the bare clay tandoor in his commercial site:

      It's interesting that superior clay is making them for him now. They're the ones who make the rumford throats, and decorative chimney pots.

        Yeah, these things look thin. Without the retained heat requirements of a WFO, it appears even a 2" thick 'brick' tandoor would perform nicely. Funny how the tandoor at this site looks like a distorted WFO with it's top missing.
