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.

  • Northern England - sourcing materials.

    Hi, anyone care to recommend a supplier of firebricks and any other materials I may need (refractory cement, fire clay etc.) for my oven project in Yorkshire?

    Re: Northern England - sourcing materials.

    I reckon you're lucky being in Yorkshire - most of the refractory suppliers seem to be in the midlands and north. YORKSHIRE REFRACTORY PRODUCTS LTD:: intro for example. You'll see that the website isn't very good - lots of areas are 'under construction'. Best to phone I suspect.

    I'm awaiting an order to be delivered from their sister company, Midland Refractories, as I write. They were very helpful over the phone, and loads cheaper than any prices I found quoted from other places on the web (eg Kitson Thermal - they were twice the price for insulation products).

    Hope it shows up tomorrow so I can crack on at the weekend now we've finally got some nice weather!

        I would also recommend Midland Refractories who can supply all of the specialist materials you will need, as well as helpful advice,
