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.

    Get 10x10 flue, minimum, for that sized oven, unless you want a really tall chimney. Clay flue goes by outside diameter, not inside, so to get an eight inch cross-section you'll need an OD of 10 inches.

        It goes from 8x8 to 13x13 (OD) in clay flues. You can try and find round clay (it is measured ID, FYI), but it is almost as pricey as metal. I do not know what size you need, whatever is recommended by the FB plans, I guess.

            Standard square and rectangular flue is cheap, round clay flue is pricey.

              In California, a 13" square clay flue tile is around $25 per 1' section.

                  25 bucks is about what it cost me for the fire brick per foot for an 8" id section of my flue.

                      You should probably plan for a three foot chimney. FB plans call for a 3 foot chimney using 8 inch round stainless pipe. The 10x10 square flue has the same effective cross section as 8 inch round, so the draw won't be the same between 2 feet of 10x10 and 3 feet of 8 inch round. Also, with a flat roof you still have to account for insulation (3 to 5 inches), the roof beams (4 inches), a bit of an air space for ventilation (2 inches) finish material (1 inch minimum), plus a "reveal" at the top of the flue for a spark arrestor if required by local code.

                      Two feet looks good until you put the roof on, and then it will seem too short. Two feet on my 42" oven clears the flat roof by 16 inches, and that's only because it's sitting on an 18 inch vent transition.
