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.

  • Counter space in front of oven

    I'm planning the counter area in front of the oven (landing in front of vent).

    I've seen two basic concepts. The first with the counter at the same level as the oven floor, creating one smooth transition in and out of the oven. Example:

    The second is with the oven landing a little lower.

    My oven is exposed to snow/rain. Does this perhaps prevent some of the weather from flowing back into the oven?

    For those that use their oven, I'd like some feedback as to functionality.

    Hi Mike,

    My oven the landing on the same level as the oven floor (the oven floor is maybe an 1/8" higher):
    PhotoPlog - Enclosure

    I like it a LOT. It makes it very easy to slide food in and out. I can lift/drag a heavy roast right onto the landing and maneuver it to the side, clear of the opening.

    For weather resistance, I designed my landing to have a very slight slope away from the door so precipitation flows away from the vent landing. That feature, combined with the over hanging roof seems to keep the entry dry in all but the heaviest, slanting downpour.

      Exactly the same thing as Ken. Same level makes things like big turkeys easy.

      Have never had any water in the entry or rear of counter.

        Wade, does your landing have a slope to it as well (to prevent water entry?)

          Yes. If I remember correctly about 1/2 bubble.

            My landing is the same height as the hearth at the point that it joins the hearth and slopes away like Ken's and Wade's. Likewise heavy comestibles like Thanksgiving turkeys in roasters slide in and out without difficulty.

            In construction, with the possible exception of interior floors (where level is perferred), one always slopes away from where water intrusion would cause problems...decks, walkways etc. to do not is to invite problems. The lawn may look level but it slopes away from the house's foundation, likewise the driveway running along side the house slopes away, the patio ajoining etc. Roadways have crown for the same reason. One could go on, but you see my point.

              Great advice. I appreciate the input. Makes since, but I didn't realize that.

              Les, if your out there lurking today, your oven has it's landing well below the hearth. Do you have any regrets?
