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.

  • Different method for a flat opening

    I wanted a flat opening for the oven, rather than an arch, simply for aesthetic reasons; but I didn't want a piece of angle iron showing as the support. I came up this this idea and it seemed to work pretty well.

    I used a drill press and a masonry bit to drill through the bricks; the drill really easily especially with a drill press. I then used a piece of all thread as the support. I was originally going to use re-bar but I had an extra piece of all thread so I figured I would take it one step further and actually bolt it together.

    Perhaps it is a terrible idea, I would love feedback.

    You can see the rest of my oven here:

    Best,

    Pretty cool! I don't see a problem with the approach. Should work just fine.

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      This will work ok, I used this method for building a flat topped roof/door for a kiln, but remember that by drilling a hole through a brick you are weakening it and providing easier fracture.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
