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.

    Hey Kevin!

    Welcome to the group.

    There have been a couple of postings on where to find fire bricks in the uk. You can find them using the search window.

    I think one guy has used brick from old heaters to build an oven as well.

    Its amazing how expensive firebricks seem to be in the UK.

    Best of luck,

    christo

      Hi Kevin,

      Welcome! After seeing so much about the trouble to locate firebrick in the UK and hearing how expensive it can be, I was intrigued enough to do a bit of 'net research and here are some starting points, at least (unless someone from the UK has better suggestions):

      Handsworth Refractories - new refractory fire bricks, refractory recycling, redundant stock, refractory services, refractory site clearance & wrecking services

      DUDLEY DESIGNS

      Handsworth, in Sheffield, as well as selling new firebrick, also has a quantity of 'redundant firebrick for immediate sale', whatever that means - possibly a deal! They may just sell wholesale but could likely provide you with the name of a supplier nearest you.

      Dudley (with a bunch of interesting products) sells a wide range of sizes and their 2.5 ' thick bricks are sold in lots of 10 or of 50. The larger quantity breaks down to 1.58 pounds per brick - expensive by North American standards but perhaps not so for the UK. Seems you can have them delivered or pick them up somewhere in the Midlands - not sure what kind of drive that would be for you - there must be somewhere in Scotland that sells them!


      A bit of an aside - nothing seemed to turn up specifically for Scotland but what was interesting is that manufacture of firebrick seems to have been HUGE in Scotland, up to the middle of the 20th century. There were some sites showing some old ones with stamped-in names that I'd love to get my hands on! Sadly, the industry seems to have died right out.

      BTW, James, if you're reading this, "Firebrick Sources" might be a worthwhile category addition to the forum since it's often one of the first questions posted by people just getting started. Separate threads within the category could address specific countries, states or regions.

        Also, a forum search for "firebrick UK, or fire brick UK" is less than useful because the search function doesn't work with two letter words.
