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.

  • Newbie from Montreal

    Hello

    I've been wanting to build a brick oven for years, and finally am going to do it. Going to build it at my parent's house and then when I have enough land of my own, going to move it there.


    I have three main questions. Definitely, the first of many, many to come

    1) As far as insulation goes, if I use firebrick as the main "building blocks" of my dome, do I still have to use a cement/vermiculite ratio as the outer layer? Can the outer dome simply be the brick and the mortar? Is the cement/vermiculite mixture the smooth surface you see on many of the pictures?

    2) Isn't the use of all the "-lites" potentially hazardous? I understand they're used as a layer for heat retention, but does it give off any hazardous fumes, seep into whatever is cooking?

    3) For the structure, can steel be incorporated? I'm an ironworker/welder and definitely want to incorporate a steel structure into my oven.

    Thanks!

    I can see a fantastic oven door in your future, given you have experience with iron work. Good luck with the build! Bert

      Won't happen as moving ovens that have been fired really doesn't work.

        Al,

        Enjoy nature! Inform us on your moving in the Outback, not moving ovens.
