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.

  • block outdoor fireplace - insert material???

    I'm building an outdoor fireplace that will use
    a propane fire log and want to make my own
    ventless insert, the rest of the fireplace will be 7 x 14 x 3 1/2"
    question is since this will put out less heat what are my options for building the insert?
    regular brick with high temp mortar?
    or do I still have to go with firebrick?
    thanks in advance

    I would stick with the firebrick.... there really is no reason to use anything else. They make firebrick in the cream color as well as red and the cost is about the same as "regular" brick. You can use red clay brick....just make sure it is truly red clay. You want to avoid using concrete brick and pavers....they cannot handle heat.

      Just pointing out that pressed clay pavers make a great oven as the pavers are of a higher density that most commons. There is a few ovens in Aust that have given good service that have been made of these. As you rightly said..no cement and there are a lot of cement pavers out there.
      Just saying ...... Firebrick is $5 ea in Aust and $7 ea in New Zealand so pressed clay pavers at 50c ea are an affordable option.

        I guess I sometime forget how fortunate (i.e. spoiled) I am.....Firebrick here is about $1 apiece...same price for clay brick.
