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.

  • Floor under or inside dome?

    Getting ready to start building oven floor and dome - could use some advice from experienced hands. In reading the instructions it look like option is to build floor inside dome walls or under dome walls. As described, building inside the dome allows for replacing damaged bricks but requires more cutting. Most of the pictures look like the floor is built and then the walls are built.

    Just looked at photos from an oven building workshop and it looks like they started the walls with a couple of courses then built the floor inside the existing walls. That procedure seems like it would make it easier to fit the floor inside the walls and make everything work together better.

    Am I missing something? Is there a reason for building the floor first and them starting to build the walls?

    Rob,

    I laid out the brick and then drew the diameter - it was pretty easy to cut them. Then it was just a matter of building the dome around it. I would think it would be more difficult to cut the floor in after the walls were built.

      While I certainly agree with Les's (sp?) idea......I think cutting the floor in after the dome would make it easier to replace the floor (or parts of) if necessary....
      Two options...take yer' pick...

        Buckey,

        I can easily replace my floor - it is not attached to the dome whatsoever. The dome was built around the floor.

          I second with Les. I have not seen any incidents on this forum where changing out a brick in the floor was a common occurance to have to plan for, IMHO.

            Floor inside or under the dome, I really doubt that you will ever have to change a floor brick unless you run a furnace or kiln.

              It's easier to draw out out and cut a circle when you don't have the constraints of the walls to scribe or butt up to.

              I'd say potato/potato, its a personal thing. My oven used different materials for floor and dome so i'd say that was the deciding factor in making the floor fir inside the dome. Then through experience of circle cutting i decided to cut and set the floor first, before proceeding with any chain building.
