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.

    Probably too late but fire clay on its own wont do the job.

          the guy in the builder providers said it was premixed and all i had to do was add water. its taking its time setting. but it has definitly got sand in it and it looks the part. ill let it dry, if its no good, ill strike the form and use the fire clay/ clay cement for insulating the floor under the fire bricks.

            Clay and cement isnt an insulator, it will add more thermal mass.

                I think its calcium silicate board, you could also use the peasants version which is vermicrete, vermiculite and cement.

                  You sound like you needed refractory concrete if you are forming a dome that way, refractory concrete sets much like ordinary concrete does, not dries.
