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.

  • Load-bearing oven...

    Anyone have a rough idea of how much weight a small dome oven would be able to support?

    Re: Load-bearing oven...

    I would not try to support much more than its own weight plus insulation unless it is banded. This means a tension ring of some sort (reinforced concrete, iron band) to take the outward force at the dome bottom.

    If using reinforced concrete, this can be about 2 inches thick by about 6 inches high and can be outside of your vermiculete insulation layer. The reinforcing could be something like two layers of 6x6 WWF (welded wire fabric) which must "communicate" continuously around the circumference and pass either under or over (or both) at your door opening. See photo. I figure I could probably carry 800 to 900 lbs (static load) on my oven.
