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.

  • $.50 used firebricks in Charlotte, NC

    Just wanted to let you guys know that there's a guy in the Charlotte, NC area that has several thousand vintage firebricks available for $.50 piece. I picked up 230 of them today. They are far from perfect, quite dirty and you will most likely spend several hours cleaning/chiseling/powerwashing them, but if you're on a tight budget like myself, it may be a good choice for you. I'm plan on using the freshly cut side for the inside of my dome.

    Let me know if you are interested and I'll send you the guy's name and number.

    We used used firebricks too. It takes some extra cuts, but you can make them look good. You will find, with a little practice, you can cut most of the extra mortar with a tile saw. We tapered our bricks, so that made three sides look clean -the other sides don't matter. Just soak the bricks in a bucket of water for 15 minutes before cutting them.

    I paid $1 for mine. Ended up buying new bricks for my oven floor though.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
