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.

  • Newbie homemade oven project...

    ... after searching and browsing thru this forum, I realize that I really suck at mortar work, and have no idea what I am doing, but I am moving forward anyways!! I didn't even really start with a plan, just an idea. I have 0 experience with carpentry, and even less with brick / mortar work.

      temporarily turn off images in your user control panel and then you'll be able to see the edit button to cut the images out or relink to smaller ones.

              So that is where I am at as of yesterday. Hoping to get my fire bricks set this weekend after go fishing. I am thinking of using Thinset so that I can get the fire bricks all as flat and level as possible... The base is full of sand, and then has a layer of wine bottles and Perlite, and then I mixed a batch of Mortar with a bunch of Perlite mixed into it and put it over the top. The perimiter of the base has 240lbs of concrete and 160lbs of mortar poured down into the holes, along with alot of empty PBR cans to fill the empty holes.

              Planning on a cob style oven on top with no chimney.

                    Beats me. Most of the cob ovens that I looked at had them for insulation? I really have no idea what I am doing. I just want to cook pizza

                      You need to get some calcium silicate board down before you lay the hearth bricks, that is the insulation, not bottles.

                        Its too late now!!

                        Was searching around today trying to locate a propane tank end, but did not have any luck. I will search some more, but may end up going with cob afterall.

                          picked up a steel 55 gallon drum yesterday. Hoping to use that to build my oven around....

                            Poohbair,

                            Listen to Brickie's advice, "good" floor insulation makes or breaks the ovens, there are many examples of builders who did not insulate the floor properly and went on with their builds only to ask why their ovens do not work correctly. If not CaSi board, vermiculite or perlcrete concrete mix will work too, just thicker. We just don't want to say later told you so.

                              The floor over the bottles is Perilite / Mortar Mix that ranges from 2" to 5" thick???
