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.

  • Which bricks should I use?

    Hi there I would like to know if anyone can tell me if refractory bricks obtained from the inside a kiln in a closed down Pottery manufacturers will be ok for linning my pompei oven. They are off white in colour and quite light in weight resembling polystyrene almost.
    Many thanks

    I'm using recycled firebricks from a giant kiln. The kiln was used to make bricks for the building industry. My bricks were not around any contaminated products or processes, so it is an acceptable risk for me. After exposure to pottery products, will those bricks be contaminated with something detrimental for your health? You will have to live with the risks, so do your due diligence finding out.

    How much do the bricks weigh? Will they float in water? I ask those questions because a 'white' brick might be an insulating firebrick (insulated firebricks will float in water) and not suitable for a brick oven.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

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

      Thanks for your advice, the bricks weigh 4lbs and don't float but when heated for 3 hours in my oven on 250 degrees they cool down quite quickly and can be handled after 30 minutes.
      Thanks again
