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.

  • Fabricated my insulated door.

    We built the insulated door to the oven. Using steel sheets,
    4" of CF insulation and gate handles.
    No bolts, all welded on. I still have to clean the steel and paint the outside
    (only) with
    high heat paint.
    I plan on using a gasket of some sort but im not sure what, as im skeptical
    about ceramic fiber stove ropes,
    the fibers are very loose and the package clearly states to not go near food.
    I was thinking of using gas oven door gasket ropes, anyone know what the
    temp rating is on that?

    Anyways here are the photos.

          Your build is looking great! I will be interested to hear how hot the outside of the door gets.

                  Re: Fabricated my insulated door.

                  My door is 4 inches of ceramic fiber board wrapped in thin aluminum sheet metal attached to a piece of plywood (on the outside). I initially propped it up against the oven opening (which is rimmed by a flat 1 1/2 in lip of brick) with a brick. No gasket. I recently put metal handles on a nice piece of wood and adhered to the outside (plywood) of the door with 600 degree silicone. Now no brick prop is needed.
                  The oven seals well enough to extinguish embers, and is generally 550 F the next morning after pizza and drops about 100 F each day after that - quicker if the oven is used to bake / cook. I haven't though I needed an additional seal.

                    Thanks for the info, my door is tight also, however ive got lots of extra gas oven door rope gasket which is not loose fibers, id like to use this but i dont know what the temp rating is, and apparently neither does the manufacture.

                        According to the Internet, a self-cleaning oven can get over 900* f. I would think the gasket would be rated to handle that temp. Just a guess.

                            Its funny how i cant find any info on this on the net



                            Does it not bother anyone else how the Fiber ropes let out fibers and are so loose? This is not good for food laying around in the oven?
