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.

    I Am Finally At A Stage Where It Looks Like Something. Here Is My Question...
    On Jim's Photo Essay The First Course Looks Like A Full Soldier And On The Forno Site The First Course Looks To Be A Half Brick. Is There Any Critical Difference Between The Two?

    Thank You In Advance.

    Hi Bob,

    Jim and I did a trial layout with the first brick full height -- which did NOT work out. The sides were high and the dome curve too steep to go up without internal forms. I measured a couple of ovens here and looked at the dimensions of our refractory ovens, and Jim re-rolled the curve using a half brick and the more gentle curve. You cannot get the dome shape you want with the full high brick in the first course.

    Make sense?

      Jim,

      Thank you.

      It does make sense...I wanted to be sure. Could not let all that labor go to waste.

        I have to go back & reset the Yahoo photo albums. When I posted them they were in the correct order to show our initial full soldier and then how that resulted in the wrong arch structure (actually more consistent with a Napoli style oven which would only be good for pizza vs. the Tuscan style that the Pompeii is when built with the first course set as 1/2 bricks). If you look at any of the end photos you'll see that the first arch is 1/2 bricks soldier style and then the rest are 1/2 bricks flat.
