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.

  • building outdoor smoker/grill. Any help?

    I am planning to build an out door smoker and grill at my new home. I plan on building it in a round form, kind of looking like an old New England well. I plan on having a door (and vent) on the bottom, near the ground to feed in the fuel and then have the option to "top load" grates filled with food, then some sort of lid.
    Question: Should I build with firebrick or water struck brick?
    I don't plan on having the temp up too high 800 at most (I think).'

    I don't know much in this field, so I will be looking for plenty of help.
    Thanks.

    You learn something every day:

    Soft-Mud Brick: Brick produced by molding relatively wet clay (20 to 30 percent moisture). Often a hand process. When insides of molds are sanded to prevent sticking of clay, the product is sand-struck brick. When molds are wetted to prevent sticking, the product is water-struck brick.
    I've never hear of these bricks. Can you tell us more? Got a picture?

      What were the bricks you haven't heard of? The firebricks? I will try to find some more info/pictures of them. All I know off the top of my head is that they are used in high temp ovens/furnaces. Not sure if they contain chemicals that you shouldn't expose to food.

        We're pretty familiar with firebricks in all their variations. They are not hazardous unless they have been salvaged from operations that involve heavy metals like smelters.

        Water-struck brick is the term I'd never heard of before.

          I just did this see my photos in gallery adman2u / I have grilled with fantastic success burned what I smoked (first time) and have not baked more than potato. / My unit transfers heat very well and I'm not used to it. My old smoker took tons of wood and didn't burn anything. Its too hot in FL to bake anything outside right now. / As a bonus I suppose I could use the unit as a fireplace too.
