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.

  • First Clay Oven?

    Hi I am first time poster on this site. I have been studying the different designs here for a while and almost ready for my build. This site is great and has a wealth of knowledge.

    Can the fire for a clay oven be underneath the floor (in a firebox)with an open slot in the back of the oven floor to allow for the heat to rise into the oven to heat the oven?

    This would allow for a clean surface for cooking and more surface area for baking without having to remove coals ash etc.

    Hope I explained this clearly...

    Thanks in adavance for your replies

    That sounds like it would be a good idea ,but I don't believe it would work.. the direct fire is what heats up the bricks and the heat sinks in to them and stays there.

      Ash is sterile, how much cleaner do you need to get?

          The flame from the fire will want to rise straight to the flue hole in the floor resulting in uneven floor heat. You will end up with a really hot rear of the oven while the front will be way too cold. The beauty of the cross draft oven with the flue at the front is that cool air enter at the bottom, combusts, circulates and is pulled across the dome before exiting at the top, resulting in excellent circulation and nice even heat distribution.
