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.

  • Alumina Silicate OR Ceramic Fibre Board

    Hi Guys,

    I have only just realised that when people talk about insulation boards their seems to be two types. ASB & CFB
    I'm a little confused as to the differences of these boards and I am now panicking that I have ordered the wrong stuff. Ceramic FB
    Can anyone shed a light on the matter.

    Are they the same thing.?
    Is one better than the other?
    Will they both support the oven weight?

    The boards I have ordered are approx. 23kgs each, is this normal? I thought they were supposed to be lightweight and easy to cut?

    I tried to search the internet for information but was confused by all the jargon so an explanation in laymans terms would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Six one way half a dozen another. What thickness you order. I personally have ceramic FB, totally happy with it. Don't worry, be happy!

      Hi Laurentious,

      Thanks for replying, after reading various threads I was worried I'd ordered the wrong stuff, it is 50mm thick by 1000 x 1200 and the board weighs in apparently at 23 kg, I thought this was rather heavy as I told my courier it would weigh about 10kg (it was a conservative guess) and I don't think they are happy with my miscalculation.
      I ordered it from a company in the UK and to be delivered to an address in the UK where it will be collected from by a English guy who will then deliver it here in Bulgaria.
      Long winded but the company wanted over £200 to have it delivered direct.

      How heavy was your board?
      Many Thanks for the reassurance

      PS Like your oven by the way particulary the extra width you gave it.

        Hi Mr Yorkshire Terrier,

        The board in not that heavy, I think the bulk of the weight will be in the packing, it somewhat of a high priced item and the company would rather over pack than bite the bullet for damaged goods plus the time involved in doing it again. Don't worry about the courier, be assured, you will pay for it. Thanks, my family and friends seems to enjoy it as much as I do. Good luck with your endeavor, there are many good people here, myself excluded, but I do try.

          Yeah too right I will pay for it in the end, but I see your point about the packing the company would ensure. I shall have to wait until I receive it but 23kg (50LBs) even with packing sounds a lot to me.
          Cheers L
