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.

  • Pompeii indoor ovnen build in Norway

    This summer I'm starting to build an indoor pompeii oven in a garden house by my house.

    I'm planning to use the 42" plans from this site but I've got into a problem I can't solve.

    In the plans the chimney is carried by an arch.
    I understand that this is not a problem with the short chimney an outdoor oven needs, but I need a 2.5 meters chimney (8 feet) and I'll guess the weight will be to much for the arch.

    Does anyone here have a solution for this?

    Kind regards,
    Bjorn

    Double walled metal flue?

      Like Tscarborough said, a double-walled chimney system is probably the way to go. Look at the DuraTech product catalog, they have all kinds of mounting options. Depending on the roof, you may only need a simple support bracket to tie the whole thing to the rafters. Only downside is the price.

      Another option would be to do something custom. Look at GianniFocaccia's build, he has a stainless steel chimney that is supported by steel studs, IIRC. I don't know what you would have to do to get it through the roof without creating a fire hazard. The nice thing about the double-wall system is that it only requires 2" of clearance.

        You can look at Gulf's thread, he has a substantial brick chimney.

          G'day
          All the weight does not need to be taken by the arch as it can be fixed at the point that it penetrates the roof. As pointed out a double skinned chimney is the preferred type

            Nothing to add to the inputs above. Just interested in indoor builds. Please post pictures.
            Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
            I forgot who said that.

              I designed in a "settling chamber" for the smoke to enter before it goes up and out the chimney. This settling chamber provides a staging area for the smoke to gather before it gets pulled up the chimney. If there is no wind, it really doesnt matter. But if there is the slightest wind, then this settling chamber works great.

              Attached is a rough picture of what I am talking about.

              My clay chimney flue is 8" x 8" x 30" long and is fairly heavy. The flue rests on two pieces of steel angle, which rest on vertical brick walls.

              There are many pictures of ovens on the FB website with black soot on the front of the oven, which is indicative of a poorly designed chimney.

                Thank you all for the helpful suggestions!

                I'll go for the double walled steel chimney solution.
                I found a supplier for these in Norway.

                The 8 feet chimney with inner diameter of 7.5 inches is at 60lbs and that should be no problems to support.
                The chimney is insulated with 2.5 inches of superwool and they also sell fireproof through the roof fittings.

                Do you think the 7.5 inches is wide enough?

                    Jeepiper,

                    Where is the golden ratio applied, at the outer opening, or at the vent bottom?
                    The outer opening looks lower than the vent bottom.
                    Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
                    I forgot who said that.

                      How will you attach the chimney to your oven? I'm about 2 weeks away from building my outer arch and need to find a steel chimney solution here in Norway.
