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.

  • Brickless in New Hampshire

    Hi everyone,
    I've been enjoying your posts. Looks like you've got a great online community here. I could use some help locating the low/med duty firebrick in Southern NH
    all the masonary supply places w/in 40 miles sell the high duty 2300deg F kind. Can I use this type? Is there a disadvantage? I'll post some pics soon.
    Wish me luck.

    Re: Brickless in New Hampshire

    I do think there are a few disadvantages to using high duty firebrick.
    First, they are usually more expensive.
    Second, my understanding is that they do not retain heat as well and tend to be insulating type bricks.
    Third, I understand they they are harder to cut.

    I would keep trying...
    I had to use medium duty in mine and they seem to be fine.

      You forgot one Drake
      I am lead to believe that they also absorb more heat then the lower ones, so you can get your oven too hot.
      As far as being harder, I can vouch for that as I cut one with a diamond brick saw and it was like cutting through a block of steel, so hard, and with so many to cut.... not for this little duck!
      With the number that you will need to make an oven, it will add consideranle weight to the project maybe requiring increased foundations.

        Welcome to the site. Hope all works in your favor. I was looking on the web and found this one in southern NH. They may be able to point you in the right direction. According to the web search it says they are a brick manufacturer.

          Re: Brickless in New Hampshire

          Thanks all for your replies,
          I was looking at some old posts and this discussion has come up previously. Apparently, the bricks I had located are considered low / med duty. They are used on the insides of fireplaces they are kind of beige in color and weigh about 7-8LBS each. They cost 1.09 each. Next time I'll dig a little deeper into the prev posts. Is there a way to search for a specific topic using keywords?
          Well thanks again.
          Pete

            Re: Brickless in New Hampshire

            There is a search function (there is a search tab right below the "Welcome your name" on every page. It has some limitations, it won't search for short words like "UK", but it's sure better than plowing through the directory. The most common problem? for common searches like "fire brick" you will get too many responses, most of them not to topic.

              Don't worry, I only noticed that function after finishing my oven. So you've already got a head start...

                Hi Pete, Welcome to the forum. I am also from NH. Where did you find those bricks for $1.09? What part of granite are you from? We are from Claremont, good luck with your build. Hope to talk back with you. Aaron

                  $1.09 is a good price. There is an Arthur Whitcomb up near here in Barre & they are getting around $1.80 per brick. (Price in March, maybe more now)

                    always ask about seconds and commons on firebricks. They arent perfect but may be usable and a lot cheaper. I will be using the good stuff on the floor tho.

                      I got my bricks from Corriveu-Routhier in Manchester. I'm from New Boston about 30 mins west of Manch. They call them "buffs".
