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.

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Vermiculite Layer - Does it EVER dry????

    Yesterday I cut off strips of the vermiculite/cement mixture from the edges of the hearth to accomodate the steel track. I wanted to fix the track directly to the regular concrete as the vermicu-crete layer had crumbled along the edges through 3 months of construction.

    Anyway, while the stuff was hard as a rock from above, my circular saw with masonry blade cut through it like butter. When I chiseled the strips off I was amazed at how light they were (my 9 year old got to impress his friends by carrying around a cinder block sized piece with one hand).

    One thing that amazed me is that although the top inch and a half was dry and cured, the mix was still moist and crumbly inside! Again, this is 3 months later! I know that many have fixed their enclosures to this layer without difficulty, but I am glad I made the decision to go to the "real" concrete.
