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.

  • tiling a mosaic on a pompeii

    I have completed my oven and fired it at temp about four times. The last time I got it up to about 900 degrees. I've developed a couple of cracks the smoke comes out of. This does not hinder the performance of the oven and I am having a blast cooking pizza. Here is my problem! I want to do a mosaic. The outside of the oven got up to about 200 degrees. This crack and outside temp led me to believe that tiling it at this stage would be a huge mistake. Last week I mixed up some fire mortar from the recipe at forno bravo and applied a 1/2" layer. I just fired it up for the third time and the top bricks turned white(700degrees) with no cracking on the outside. The outside temp is about 110 degrees.

    Can I tile right over this?
    do I need a certain type of mortar?
    What type of grout?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
