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.

  • How many fire bricks for a 32" oven?

    Using a CAD program, I was able to determine an approximate number of 2.5 x 4.5 X 9 ("whole") firebricks needed to build the dome. This figure assumes approximately 6 firebricks used for the front opening; the rest of the opening and vent and chimney built using other materials.

    Assuming the dome is built of 4.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 bricks, you would need approximately 75 WHOLE bricks to build the oven.

    Assuming you want to get fancy, and cut trapezoids for the last 3 or 4 chains, the number of WHOLE bricks would be about 90.

    This does not include the floor, nor does it account for damage/waste, etc.
    It's just my estimate.

    Any thoughts?

    There is nothing quite so satisfying as drinking a cold beer, while tending a hot fire, in an oven that you built yourself, and making the best pizza that your friends have ever had.

    Bump - I answered my own question (Note how my current plan has again changed - I've decided to max out on space utilization and go for a 35" dome).
