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.

  • my build is underway

    Hi just a quick post to say hi. I am about to start building my 42" pomei oven. I picked up the bricks today, the vermicucrete is sett and i about to lay the cooking floor.

    I am srill undescided about how i am going to build the dome. Is it better to use the indespensible tool or build a sand form. I just cant decide. With the sand i can dobuild faster but without it i can guarantee a better quality finish. I know i should probabpy trawl through but this forums posts seem cavernous.

    I just did my dome using a sand form. In hindsight I wish I used the tool, a little slower but able to clean the inside as you go.
    My 2 cents worth.

      My vote is for the tool. use a mirror to check your work as you go.

        Thanks for your help. I went for a polistyrene mould. I wrapped it in duck tape so there was no gaps. I have finished my dome but now a question about insulation.

        I have three bags of perlite left over. As i am a tight yorksire man what thickness of vermiculite concrete will suffice as insulation? Or should i dip my fingers in my pocket and buy some blanket?

          "what thickness of vermiculite concrete will suffice as insulation?"

          4 inches of 12:1 mix is typical. I would not scrimp on the insulation, a well insulated oven will give you much better performance and versatility.
