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.

            Looks great! I admire the fact that you actually split the bricks for the rings. I'm sure its been done before, but I've never actually seen it reported here (but, there many gaps in my education).

            FWIW, you may be a bit lite on the two inches of insulating concrete. Insulation under the oven floor was added to the plans a few years ago to design enough insulation to keep the heat from wicking down into the hearth. Two inches is good, four inches twice as good.

            Enjoying your pictures too.

            If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
            Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
            An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

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

              I would add the extra insulation under the hearth bricks if it's not too late.
              Great job so far!

                Thanks for the replies and input. It is to late to go back and add more insulation, oh well ......i think ill b ok I am not doing any more than just a backyard oven and I'm sure I'll reach my temps for pizza and bread and hold on to a bunch of heat. More than I'll ever need anyway.

                On a positive note we had great weather today and completed 2 more courses of brick there is rain tomorrow and SuperBowl! So no work tomorrow. I'll work on posting some new photos tomorrow.
