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 just got a quote for a 50lb bag of heat stop - 300 plus dollars!!! I'm thinking that's pretty absurd.

      Try the rumford website at HeatStop
      They list it for $50 plus $35 shipping. They also have a dealer in Carson City - Carson Masonry that you could try.
      By the way, I'm planning on a 42" and will taper the bricks to reduce mortar usage, I was wondering on how many bags I may use?

        Re: Heat stop

        If you can get it locally, you should buy one bag at a time because it does have a tendency to wick out humidity and develop lumps. I used one bag, but I cut everything. A semi cut oven (brick sides cut, but not tapered) should use two or three, depending on how deep you lump it up. I don't think you need to mortar all four inch depth of a half brick oven, in other words leave it a little porcupine like.

          Thanks RC - Carson Masonry is where I got the absurd quote. I’m thinking that it was for a pallet or a larger quantity. Or they may be running with the Barnum and Bailey mantra. In regard to how much we need, not sure. I was going to buy two bags and go from there.
