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.

  • Cement with the cob??

    I've got Kiko Denzer's book and like it a lot and also have Alan Watt's book. Alan is in Australia and suggests putting about 10% portland cement with the cob mix. I haven't seen this suggestion elsewhere. Can anyone tell me if this is advisable? Anyone with experience using this type cob?

    Gudday
    just seen no one has replied......don't think wer'e are rude...you might try to repost in the section "other oven types" further down the forum page. You are more likely to have someone with the right info for you rather than other first timers

      Re: Cement with the cob??

      I did a pizza oven building course with Alan Watt, at the time I thought the guy had all the answers and built my first oven using his techniques.

      After finding this forum I tore down my first oven and built the second one properly.

            Given that Portland cement doesn't like high temp and is likely to break down, the addition of lime to the cob would be preferable. Perhaps lime for the inner face and cement for the rest. If applying the mix by hand, any lime in it will be pretty savage on the skin of your hands, suggest you wear rubber gloves.

                  I thought it was in the mortar.

                    I stand corrected, I knew they used it some where..

                      I am still more interested in the discussion on Beer...

                      There is a good rice beer made near here named Special Export ... one of my favorites.

                        Beer.
                        I lived in Munchen Germany for 1 year. When I went to Germany, I didn't drink nor smoke, now I drink good beer and smoke.(turkey, duck, pastrami,chicken,venison, lamb), you get my drift.
