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.

  • Forno Bravo oven directions

    I am in the process of planning the size of my pad to accomdate my 35" corner installation oven. So I am looking at the plans (one of the pages shown below) and the numbers don't make sense to me. According to my calculations, a 35" inside diameter oven should be 54" outside with brick, insulfrax and vermiculite insulation (p. 14). In the diagram it shows 40" side-to-side and 45" front-to-back. It also shows a 24" front opening width where instructions several pages before that say 18" (36" oven). Am I missing something here or are the directions off? Space is at a premium on my patio for the pad, but I sure don't want to make it too small either!

    Hey Pizza,

    This drawing is for the outside dimensions of the Casa90, and there are some differences between that oven and a Pompeii Oven. The Casa series has the vent walls built into the oven itself -- which is why the exterior dimension of the vent landing area is wider. Also, the walls of the Casa ovens are a little thinner than the 4.5" half brick that many builders use for the Pompeii dome.

    Does that help?

    Also, if space is a premium, I always think it is best to do everything you can to maximize oven space any way you can. A couple of inches really matters inside the oven when you are cooking -- though a couple of inches outside on your patio is less important.

    Plus, you can wrap your oven with 3" of Insulfrax to thin out the insulation layer and still have a well-insulated oven; and you can cut your bricks down to around 3". Those will both get you more oven space in the same footprint.
