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.

  • Can a Flue Be Too BIG?

    sorry for the double post.... guess i should have done it here...

    well my question is ? i have a 40" oven. if i got a 12" X 4 1/2" Flue made for the full size of the vent opening, will that be too big? Will it draw u think..... i had a 6" round pipe before and some some got out but i am wondering if gettin a fabricated one made up for the size of the whole vent opening, will it cause it not to draw if too big ? What do ya'll think ? thanks alot God Bless

    My 40" Pompei has a void outside the actual dome 600mm x 400mm running up to a 200mm diameter flue, ie. 24" x 16" running up to an 8" flue.
    I get no smoke out from the front of my front arch unless I point a petrol leaf blower to excite the fire which might be struggling to roar.
    Your void is considerably smaller which equates to 54 sq inches where mine is 384 sq inches.
    I would most definitely go for an absolute minimum 8" flue, as that will have a surface area of 25.14 sq inches where a 6" only has 18.86 sq inches, 75% the area or volume capability.
