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.

  • Crack in Vent

    my pizza oven developed a crack in the vent - right above the door - do I need to worry about that? It even put a hairline crack in the flagstone on the top of the oven. I have attached a picture (I hope) so you can see the oven. what do I need to be concerned about?

    Re: Crack in Vent

    Can you post a close up picture of the crack?

    Nice looking outside area are you have there

    Bottom line for me would be to keep the oven dry inside....Does the crack compromise your dry envelope for the oven? Does the crack cause a smoke leak that bothers you?

    I don't have experience with a cracked oven but have read several threads here about patching cracks, you might do a search on fornobravo for 'crack' and read up on the experience of others here

    Sorry you had to wait so long for a reply.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      We have been using it with no problems. The crack has not gotten any larger and it is outside of the cooking area (actually, there may be a small crack inside by the door). It really has not impacted it at all, so I think we will just leave it alone. Thanks for the reply! :-D

        The crack probably happened on a weekend during the races over by the Interstate

          I'm affraid if you do that you will get one gazillion hits. I don't think anything has been discussed more than cracks.

          Bauchert,
          I think your approach works - if it's not causing any issues, leave it alone.
