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.

  • chimney pipe/stove pipe questions

    What size of pipe is recommended for the 42" oven?
    What about triple wall chimney pipe - will that work? It iis stainless steel.
    And how long should it be?
    It's "Metalbestos...Type SS-II"
    and it's 30" long. Could I use this?

    Cecelia,

    Triple wall stainless steel will work fine -- it's a tad thick for what you get, but it will work.

    What is the inside dimension? You want 8".

      I can get it for 35 bucks! I am waiting to find out if the inner dimension is 8" - keeping my fingers crossed!

        What about chimney caps? I am using a clay (terra cotta) chimney - actually, an 8" thimble. I am assuming I'll need some sort of cap but what purpose does a cap serve and what do I need - as in MUST have? Do I need downdraft protection? Or just weather cover?

          Carbon from your chimney will wash down the flue and end up on your landing if you don't have a chimney cap. It may help with downdrafts, but that's the main problem if you aren't providing a critter barier for an indoor oven.

            And a spark grate of course.

              So nothing fancy is required? Taken to a simple extreme, I could just place a non-combustible cover on top (above) the thimble, slap on a screen grate thing and, voila?

              Sorry for the simple questions. I just need to understand why I do things, what I need to accomplish, before I move ahead. Once I understand I can make decisions based on whim and caprice if I'm so moved. So thanks. This oven building can get obsessive and this forum is just a brilliant collection of enablers.

                Well, i didn't get the chimney pipe - oh well. I'll keep looking - but it's kinda expensive at FornoBravo - Is it that expensive everywhere?
                Where do you get the terra cotta chimney?
                Could we build a chimney out of brick?

                Am I correct in saying there doesn't have to be an opening with a vent at all - of course the smoke would end up coming right out in your face, I suppose - not much different than my junk electric oven at the moment!
