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.

    Fire clay

    Fire clay is a clay made up of aluminate and silica. You can buy it in a 50lb bag from your local brick supplier, but probably not Home Depot. It has many of the characteristics of a true refractory mortar, such as its ability to withstand high heat. That is why you add it to a traditional mortar to withstand heat. When you mix fire clay with portland cement, you get a mortar that is more heat resistant than concrete (portland cement with a sand and gravel aggretate), but much less resiliant or thermally conductive than a true aluminate mortar. Don't forget that portland cement burns out at a relatively low temperature.

    Here in Sonoma county, you can get fire clay from our big, local masonry supply company, SBI -- who is also a Forno Bravo oven dealer .

    For an easy to work with (but less resilient) mortar:

    1 part portland
    3 parts sand
    1 part lime
    1 part fire clay

    For a more permanent, but harder to work with mortar:

    1 part calcium aluminate
    3 parts sand
    1 part lime
    1 part fire clay

    For an easy to use, long lasting mortar (but a little more $), you can buy Refrax from Forno Bravo.

    It's a real, pre-mixed refractory mortar.
