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.

  • Naturally heat resistant stone?

    New guy here , I'm wanting to build an oven this spring , was just wondering if anyone here could tell me if there are any naturally occurring heat resistant stone that can be used in place of firebrick.

    Was mainly interested in limestone as I have access to a quarry here where I can get beautiful big slabs of limestone in any thickness desired , at a very fair price.

    I was thinking that as lime is used in most concrete mixes , it could maybe be used in it's raw form , but I haven't found any information on it yet.

    Could it be used , or would it break down under the heat of the oven?

    I will use firebrick if I have to , but it is very expensive where I live , also the limestone is very nice looking.

    Thanks for any input.
Working...
