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

    What kind of fire clay and how much do I purchase to spread with a notched trowel undeneath the firebrick oven floor? (molded fire clay from a potter's store or powdered)? Retailers I've talked with in Richmond VA want to selm refractory cement to me. What kind of store will have the fire clay I need?
    Thanks for your help and guidance.

    Around here (southern california) fireclay is sold at building supply yards. Some of the builders on this site collect the fireclay 'dregs' from their initial brick cuttings and once dried out just use that to level the floor. As was mentioned previously, fireclay is inexpensive, around $9 for a 50lb bag. Refractory mortar is not recommended to level your oven floor.

        You spread the sand/fireclay mixture with a notched tile trowel. Its only about 1/4" thick but it will vary a little bit in thickness depending on how level your hearth slab is.
