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.

  • Door Stuck!

    I have to post this in the Newbie forum.

    Finished the final coat on the render - all looks good. Took pictures, posted them in the pictures forum and then...

    Tried to remove the door and I have not left enough gap to get it out

    So it's out with the angle grinder and try and make the grinded (gound?) area not look so obvious.

    Thinking I might paint the entry way and chimney with high temp black paint. The entry will go black with soot so I may as well make it consistant.

    No pizza today total fie ban in place due to high risk of bush fires.

    Re: Door Stuck!

    You could get the door in but not out? Did you put it in after the oven was hot? Perhaps after cooling, the oven cooled and locked in the door as the brickwork cooled?

    Mine is a tight fit. Sometimes, it's just a matter of getting the tip angle right to get it out. I think I'd pass on the paint - A few fires after grinding, your work should dissappear.

      That's wierd. Theoretically the metal door has a higher co-efficient of expansion than the masonry, so the door would shrink more on cooling than the arch.

          Flamin doors, eh.
          Why can't we simply post a sign - NO HEAT PAST THIS POINT.
          My door thought it was Boss, until I realised that simultaneous crossing of eyes and toes (picture that, eh), would break the evil spell.

            Re: Door Stuck!

            Actually it was "user error" I simply put too much render on the inside of the arch and made the hole just a bit too small to get the damn thing out!

            1/4 inch of grinding and it now works like a charm.

            Nothing to do with expansion - but now that you mention it I wonder if it will get stuck when I next fire the oven...

            How much would a sheet metal door expand??
