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.
I cannot find it locally which is why I went searching for it on the trade/sell thread. None of the masonry supply clerks seem to know what I am talking about when I ask for it. I also called a local potter but he uses a different kind of clay for his work. I can get Heatstop locally but after reading on the forum it seems like a lot of builders prefer the "home brew". I will go that route if I cannot find a good way to get the fireclay. If you would like to wait it out to see if someone will come and pick it up rather than shipping it, I completely understand. Thanks again. Mike
Thanks for the link. The closest refractory is in Altoona and they primarily work with ceramics and do not sell fireclay. All others are at least 3hrs away. I live in the epicenter of Pa. with nothing close by. Mike
I am in Pittsburgh (3 hours away)this weekend and stopped by a fireplace/hearth store and they had some fireclay. I went ahead and bought some. I hope you have not gone to too much trouble. The weather here is starting to turn and I need to get rolling. I hope I did not cause you any inconvenience and thank you for your generous offer. Have a great weekend. Mike
No problem, I am glad you were able to find some at what was, I expect, a more reasonable cost...and you got to catch the sights in Pittsburg...Let me know when you get started and get some pictures posted
