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.

  • what type of Mortor are people using

    I started with sairset 7 last fall then got cancer and had to stop
    noiw are the firebricks are coming apart the mortor did not harden or winter was to hard. Thinking of using cement cause it will harden enough to hold the firebricks. Any suggestions????

    Hello, and sorry about your health problems.

    Sairset 7 and other wet, premixed refractory mortars are not recommended, for just this reason, they don't set hard and they aren't waterproof. These are designed for things like furnace or kiln repairs where the joint is thin, and subjected to high heat soon after the work.

    If it were me, now I don't know how far you got, but I'd want to take it apart, clean off the mortar that never hardened, and use one of the recommended dry commercial mortars like refmix or heatstop50, or use the sand-portland-fireclay homebrew mix.
