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.

  • how about fire clay?

    I have been wanting to build a brick oven for quite a long time, but keep feeling overwhelmed about the whole aspect of purchasing and cutting and joining, etc. I have seen prefabbed dome ovens for sale, but those seem to always be way too expensive. Now, I have heard of forming a domed oven out of clay and thought that that may be a suitable substitute process. Has anyone tried this approach, and if so, what type of fire clay should I be looking for?
    I read about EPK Kaolin dry clay in 50 lb bags. If this is a good type of clay, I could use it for the dome and use fire brick for the flooring. I'm thinking that a good 3" thick clay dome would be a good start, then wrap around it with and insulating blanket and then the vermiculite material for further insulation. If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.
Working...
