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.

  • Vent Size, mortar floor: Please Help!

    Building a 42" oven. The Plans show a 4.5" deep vent landing. Threads and pictures and discussion suggest the vent opening should be deeper. If my vent width will approach 20", the width of my opening, how deep does the vent need to be to get a good draw??? Can it be too big?? I'll use a SS vent that funnels down to a somewhat smaller flue.

    2nd, we used a thin layer of type N mortar to help set floor bricks on the 4" vermiculite concrete floor. Am I screwed?

    Hi Tom,

    I have a 42" oven. My vent opening is exactly 4" deep. Here's the link to my vent construction pics:

    My draw is excellent; I wouldn't hesitate to build one of these indoors.

    There is no need to use anything to bond the floor bricks to the floor. That being said, you won't have any problems. You are definitely not screwed.

    Be sure to post some pics of your progress!
