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.

    In response to some questions raised about the sizing of the hearth slab, I've put together this drawing.

    Remember, there's nothing sacred about any of the dimensions after you've completed the oven dome. All the "extra" room is used for the housing and to make constructing the base walls easier by not requiring cut blocks (I went mortarless so if you use the traditional 1/2" mortar joint you'll need to extend the hearth or cut some blocks). The hearth is also oversized because I gave myself the option to add thermal mass if needed and to allow for a cultured stone facing I was planning originally. Once I found the Ondura tiles I switched gears to an "Italianish" looking oven instead. You can easily remove one 1/2 block (8") from the length and potentially the same from the width to minimize the slab size.

    Also, this is for a dog house design for the oven housing. An igloo design only requires about 3" more than the dome size for the vermiculite concrete cladding. That would substantially reduce the size of the hearth.

    P.S. Actually the file is not attached. It's too big (100K vs. 39K allowed). You can find it at groups.yahoo.com/group/fornobravo/files/
