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.

  • Is 6" and 7" too small for the chimney?

    Hello

    I'm in UK. Typical over here, finding 'anything' to build the oven is a nightmare

    I can get 6" and 7" diameter pipe for the chimney quite easily and at a reasonable price. However, 8" is difficult to find.

    Has anyone used 6" or 7"? with good results?

    Any advice will be appreciated

    Mick

        I made a 36" oven and have a 8" pipe and it is about 5' high it works very well. I would suggest you get the 7" if you cant get the eight. But try to source the 8" pipe.

          6 or 7" will almost work but I will guarantee that you will get abundant smoke out your front entry on light up. 8' is recommended and necessary and I will also add that a good funneled entry to your chimney will also help prevent smoke out the front and the chimney drawing well at all times.
          It is well worth the searching and maybe the added expense to get it right at this construction stage rather than trying to fix the problem later.

            " help prevent smoke out the front and the chimney drawing well at all times."

            Having smoke come out the front during firing is not a problem for me. Many of the pizza ovens you see in places like Croatia and Sicily have no chimney/vent.
