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.

  • Asbestos in bricks ?

    I saw a document mentioning kiln firebricks sometimes contain asbestos. I assume all firebricks made in last couple of decades won’t have asbestos but what about older firebricks. How commonly was asbestos used ? Sounds like making a WFO creates lots & lots of dust unless have a wet saw...which I won't as we don't have HF in NZ. Not keen on doing anything with asbestos.

    Each manufacturuer has their own process - though all of the analytical that I have in my records for almost 100 years of bricks in the SW US indicate nothing. If you are concerned about some recycled bricks, take a chip off and send it to an asbestos lab for $10 to $15.

    I do know some refractory muds did contain asbestos though

      I also know of no bricks made using asbestos, although plenty of kiln insulation was either composed of or contained asbestos.

        I'll almost certainly be using new as chances of finding used is 0.001% but thought it was worth asking as it's very nasty stuff. I'm still waiting on Forno Bravo NZ to reply to my messages....perhaps they have gone.

          CORRECT, no asbestos in firebricks. Asbestos was used in insulating situations.

            However, there is silica which can cause "issues" according to OSHA and the state of California. Just take precautions with minimizing the dust, wearing a good dust mask (which is rated at P95 or better) and working with the bricks as wet as possible.
