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.

  • Flue Damper

    I am in the process of building a 36" oven. I shaped the floor so I could stand full height soldier bricks outside the floor. The interior of the oven should be 19" with a 12" to top of arch door. The oven is inside our kitchen. We live in an area that requires heating in the winter 7000 ft elevation in Colorado. I need to have a damper to minimize heat lose through the chimney. The chimney location is at the rear of the oven due to this project being an 18 year after thought. So the chimney will have to go over the top of the oven and then out an existing 8" clay tile chimney. I was thinking of either making a damper similar to what you may find in a fireplace that is located just as the chimney leaves the oven or to try to fabricate a butterfly damper inside the 8" clay chimney tiles. The latter would be simpler to make but more difficult to integrate functionally.

    Masonry heater dampers are much more substantial than the ones they make for woodstoves or fireplaces. They have to seal off the air flow so the mass of masonry heats the house, not the outside air.

    Here's a page with hardware for masonry heaters, the dampers are at the bottom.

      Re: Flue Damper

      Thanks for the link. I actually had one of their dampers in hand many years ago as I was preparing to construct a masonry stove. In fact the bricks I am using for the oven were originally slated for that project. I'm not sure how will it would work into my oven since the chimney is so far back from the front of the oven. It may be the way I go but for now I will do more exploring.
