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.

    I want to pour vermiculite concrete between my oven dome and the brick housing wall. The vermiculite concrete will fill the sides and be poured over the top of the dome. Then I want to lay brick over the top of the dome. I built a 32'' oven will it expand enough to damage the outside brick housing?

    Re: Expantion

    The vermiculite should expand at more or less the same rate as the exterior masonry. The interior brick dome will expand more than either of the exterior layers. The cured vermiculte concrete is fairly rigid: I used a one inch refractory blanket between the dome and vermiculite partly because it's more compressable, and might relieve expansion stresses between the two rigid layers. On the other hand, many makers have used the vermiculite concrete by it's self without difficulty.
