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.

    So I'm new to the wonderful world of wood burning pizza ovens, Ive read about ceramic blanket and vermiculite has anyone tried Rock Wool
    Its a mineral wool insulation. It's what we use at work (I build powder coating ovens for a living). I don't know if it would work for this just
    wondering if anyone had given it a shot.

    Ever Forward

    Should work, CFB is rated higher, Mineral wool is a bit denser I think.

      Re: Insulation types

      Did a quick search on this and found bulk "rockwool" for about $45 that is spun from molten rock and used in landscaping and for plantings. Is this the same stuff? Do you think I could use this alone or would I still need to fill the outer cladding with vermiculite as well?

        Do a search in the forum for rockwool. It has been discussed a couple of times. In fact I used rockwool on my oven, although I don't think the landscaping stuff would work. You do need a product that can stand high temps on a regular basis.

          here is the stuff I have at the plant we use it in powder coat oven applications
          but we are usally dealing with oven temps in the 400 f range
          and heater temps around 600f

          Ever Forward

            here is the stuff I have at the plant
            The PDF says it's rated for temps up to 1000f, so you should be ok. I worry about it's rigidity for under oven use: it says it conforms to irregular surfaces.

              use it and if you have room, use lot's of it!

              I think for dome cladding it would work fine, under the hearth, how do you keep it from compressing?
