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.

  • vent and chimney

    Still planning my vent and chimney. really appreciate all the help. from looking at all the pictures of vents i would like to build a vent box fo about 18"-2' and then place the chimney (duratech) on top of this. it looks like most builds the chimney attaches without much vent but either way is ok (correct) also when i build the vent is it ok to put the bricks on there side (would like to dissapate heat) or is it better to lay them flat as they will get very hot ?? my dome is going to be enclosed with hardibacker but the front vent face will come out as a chimney thanks again

    I just stuck the chimney flue on top of the outer and inner arch opening. not much of a vent at all. It draws real well, and the chimney doesn't get that hot. all the heat flies up the chimney so fast.

    Here's a link to the pics:

      wow your oven is looking great. my problem is i need to have about an 8' chimney total (close to house) and i would like to use 6' of duratech pipe. did you enclose your chimney with brick or can you leave it to the weather (it really doesnt get hot?) thanks

        the flu liner is 8", about 10 on the outside. I have about 2" of void around it.

        here's a better view. so the whole thing is about 12" square. I'm going to measure the temps this weekend, but I think its OK

              Insulated chimney units shouldn't get very hot on the outside. If you like how it looks you can leave it exposed.

                do you think it will get hot if the front faced is exposed (no insulation) and only a firebrick laying on its side (not flat) thanks for reply
