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.

    Hi All,

    Like many others, I had considered building a WFO for a while and have now finally made a start. The base has been completed and I am now researching what next. Here are a few photos of my progress.

    Thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge on this forum allowing so many people to benefit.

      Dave,

      Congratulations on making a start.

      That's some serious reo in the slab. I can see that this is build is not going to move anywhere!

      Have fun.

          Hi Paul,

          I had the reo/mesh left over from house renovations so thought I'd put it to good use. The slab is 200mm with mesh top and bottom. The soil is reactive so I thought it was worthwhile doing.

          Thanks Lee,

          I'm going to build a 42" Pompeii Oven using the FB plans as a guide.

            Hi Dave and welcome aboard.
            Great to find another Adelaidian on board.
            I guess that you are from the north eastern suburbs with that reactive soil. Your foundation should ride out all that they can (and will) offer.
            Keep the pics coming as the members like to see member's progress.
            Cheers.

                  Hi cobblerdave,

                  I've been a little (or maybe a lot) slack lately and have been dragging my heels.

                  I still have to source a supplier for the materials and unsure where in SA I can get them all in one hit. I can get the whole lot shipped from Sydney but the freight/logistics may make that difficult.

                  If anyone has used a local supplier then let me know so I can get this baby moving.

                  Dave

                            Hi Dave

                            I noticed your using a lock block - besa block? I too am looking at using this type of block to speed things up, as I will be filling the blocks with concrete anyway. How did you find them? The result looks great.

                              I checked with Littlehampton when I built my Pompeii and they couldn't/wouldn't tell me their composition.
                              They are also around $5 each although their seconds are more reasonably priced if they have them
                              They sell far more of their 4" solid fired clay pavers to oven builders and that is the way I would go next time as they are fired at over twice the temp (1200˚C) that you are ever likely to get your oven.
                              I suggest you contact Thermal Ceramics at 10-14 Toogood Avenue, BEVERLEY PARK, SA, 3305. They have most of what you need.
