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.

  • fire brick question

    Hi, I'm new to this forum.

    I hope someone can help with this question. I live in Taiwan, and I thought I had the right bricks. I have to convert from F to C. I just wanted to make sure I had the right bricks and asked if they were good to 500C and they said sure, they're good up to 800C which is about 1475 F.

    I've asked around and it looks like they don't make the low duty firebricks here. I saw in the plans that the high duty bricks should be avoided.

    I'd appreciate any advice, because I've already rounded up all the other materials, and was set to go.

    So far so good. Now for the weight a typical brick should be about 8 pounds/ 3.6 kg. If it is lighter then you are probably looking at an insulating fire brick not a fire brick.

      Thanks for getting back to me,

      I'm certain its not an insulating brick. They showed me some bricks the same size, but they're really light and can toss them easily. So those higher temp bricks are ok. The plans looked like it was saying to stay away from the higher temp ones.
      Thanks

        I think in the plans there is differentiation between low, medium and high. Low and medium are ok, with low being preferable for most due to cheaper cost only. I think 1475 F or 800C would qualify as medium. Considering your oven will be pushing over 800C in the dome anyway, I'd buy those and get building.

          Ok, good. Thanks so much. I thought I was going to have scrap it all. My Father is coming from Tulsa to Taiwan in 2 weeks to help me out with it.
          Look forward to putting some pictures up here.
          Thanks
