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.

  • combination smoker and WFO

    I am in the process of building an outdoor kitchen which includes a combination pizza oven and smoker. My design is essentially an oven with a hole in the middle of the floor for a charcoal box for smoking. When I want to use it as an oven I will cover the hole with a pizza stone and build the fire. I have not seen anything like this on the internet so I am wondering if there is a reason this won't work. I realize it is a little sub-optimal for both a smoker and an oven but I think it will work.

    Any thoughts?

    Maybe post a question about this on the bbq-brethren board, more smoke heads there...

      I built a combination pizza oven, fireplace and smoker. Your idea should work great for smoking and pizza. I haven't tried baking bread yet, but every other aspect works great so far.

        I'm glad someone else has tried this and it seems to work. Especially since I'm almost done

              It will be interesting to see how well it retains heat without the insulation in the space for your firebox. I think you will also have issues with your pizza stone getting way hotter than your firebricks during firing of your oven for pizza's. You will certainly get the stone above 700 long before your firbricks. Your firbox space may just suck all of your heat away.

              I smoke in my oven by buildinga bed of coals to one side, and placing the food on the other, small chunks of wood and the firing door on cracked a bit for circulation has worked for me.

              Please keep us posted as you get your oven completed and learn how your oven cooks. Could be a learning experience for all of us.
