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.

  • Yet another firebrick question!

    Hi All,
    I have come across some second hand firebricks at a brickyard. Are there any issues with using used firebricks that I need to bear in mind when purchasing, other than making sure they are 'structurally sound'?

    Does it matter what the bricks came out of? Could they have 'absorbed' any chemicals as part of their previous life?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Cheerio,

    Mark

      You have nothing to worry about except heavy metals. If they came out of a blast furnace or smelter you might have a problem. Most used firebrick came out of ordinary boilers and should be fine.

        Thanks Fireandflames,

        The guy just said they were from a 'kiln' so I'm not really sure. I would think that they should be OK but thought that those with greater knowledge than mine could provide some advice!

        Cheerio,

          Remember that for your dome you will likely cut a new face for all the bricks you will see (most anyway) so the old firebrick faces can all be buried in the dome mass. I bought new bricks for the hearth floor and will recycle old bricks for the dome and insulation layers.

            Modern kilns are made from insulating firebrick. If the bricks are light, porous, and easily dented, they are good for insulation, not for your dome or cooking floor.
