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.

  • Looking For Advice Re Oven Floor Insulation

    hi guys,
    im new to the forum but im being reading a lot lately looking for tips and learning different methods to build ovens..

    i already started building my oven and need some advice for the insulation of the floor..

    my first idea was to just use a layer of glass and rock sea salt and on top of it another layer of refractory mortar..
    then on top of it would place the alumina bricks...

    although now i bought the ceramic fiber blankets to insulate the dome and since i have spare i was wondering if i should also add one layer of ceramic fiber on top of the rock sea salt... to add extra insulation...

    so basically my question is if i should just go with
    glass/rock sea salt/refractory mortar/alumina bricks

    or
    glass/rock sea salt/ ceramic/refractory mortar/alumina bricks.

    what would you recommend?

    thanks in advance for your help.

    Don't put salt anywhere in or near concrete. It is corrosive and will do little as insulation.

    Glass is not a great insulator either...but it's better than putting the brick in contact with the concrete slab.

    Go the standard perlite/vermiculite concrete mix or ceramic board.

      thanks for your reply.

      the problem i have is that materials are really hard to find down here..
      i had to order most of the materials from manila..
      so i cannot get perlite/vermiculite or ceramic board... although i have the ceramic blanket..

      should i use the ceramic blanket on top of the glass then?
      thanks.

        See if you can locate materials that davids suggested, in the other thread were you asked this same question.
