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.

  • 36" Dome in a day

    Hello all.
    So happy, I have never laid a brick in my life, (I am a formwork carpenter by trade) for my first oven I made forms and cast the oven in situ using refractory materials, this was easy for me as my trade is making molds for concrete however I now live in Costa Rica far from the city so only have acess to certain materials. Using the excellent book Your Brick Oven: Building it and Baking in it by Russel Jeavons I managed to lay up the foundations, walls and slab in 2 half days and completed the dome and door arch in another day, Unfortunatly the door arch collapsed as I was too eager to strike the form sooner rather than later but it took less than 2 hours to rebuild "·better and stronger" For a dome gauge I just made a wooden gauge using rubbish wood with a screw in the bottom of the arm connected to a maisonary nail in the slab by wire, perfect movement in every direction. I was very happy with this thinking out of the box meathod as I was trying to work out for ages how I could make the gauge out of metal, So simple just nail 3 bits of wood together and wire it to the slab. I will forward photos soon.
    Thank you

    Great to hear. Did you by chance insulate under the hearth?
