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.

  • Adding brick veneer to calore2G

    I am interested in building an outdoor fireplace and wish to add my own brick veneer to the calore2G75 or 90 model...any video or how to advice for how to best plan and execute this?

    any advice on easiest way to secure veneer?

    Tricky part for me (a non-mason type) is how to veneer 'around' the edges, corners and the angles up the chimmney.

    I plan on some brick veneer for my oven. Due to the cost of brick veneer I found to thus far, I'm planning on cutting standard clay brick into veneers. I think I can set them like I have set ordinary bathroom or kitchen tile. As far as the corner I plan on cutting the brick 1/2" to 5/8" into L shape to wrap the corners

      The thicker, the better, for that application. That is, depending on the brick that you choose. Some brick are more stable than others.

        Just frame up the enclosure with cement board and veneer it using exterior grade thin-set. They sell pre-made corners..install the same way.

        Don't worry about being a 'non-mason type' for this application...it isn't masonry.

          I am assuming you mean thin brick veneer, BTW. It would work well if you don't have masonry experience.
