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.

    There are a number of posts on just this topic in the Outdoor Fireplace Design folder. There are benefits and drawbacks, but it certainly can be done.

      I built a fireplace under my oven, but the entry on the opposite side, and inside the adjoining building. There are two problems with the combination. Many people think that a fireplace would go well directly under the oven, where the wood storage normally is. Fireplaces work best if they are vented directly up from the firebox, and that is where the oven opening is. You certainly don't want to try to vent your fireplace into the oven enclosure, that wouldn't work at all. You may also find that having a fire at your feet while you are trying to cook would be extremely unpleasant.

      There is also an inherent problem with outside fireplaces. Because you don't have the temperature difference between outside and inside that draws the smoke up the chimney. They are prone to smoking and have to be planned very carefully to take advantage of the prevailing winds.

      There is some discussion of this problem on the Rumford site.

        Re: fireplace

        I completed my fireplace/oven combination around July of this year. It has been fantastic. No, the fireplace is not like an indoor fireplace and does get some smoke out the front until the flue heats up, but it works great. My flue is at the rear of the fireplace and behind the oven. The mass of the fireplace heats the area nicely, even on colder days. It's nice on cool nites after the pizza's are cooked to throw the burning embers right on the logs in the fireplace and watch them catch. Easiest fire I've ever built. It's all in what you want out of your unit. Here's a pic of mine.

        Good Luck!
