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.

  • Wet Oven

    I built my CASA2G oven last summer and used it successfully many times. After a wet winter I opened it to find the interior of the oven was damp. I checked the exterior and found there were no cracks or anywhere that water could get in. It took me ten days of seasoning to get the temperature up to 900 degrees. Does anyone have any ideas how this could happen? Do I have this to look forward to every spring?

    Hmmm.

    You may need to post a few pics for us to troubleshoot the issue. It was a wet winter, as discussed with my dad who lives over in Lake County.

    None the less, you may not have sealed the structure properly (pretty fair guess) which allowed for water to get in during a windy period.

    I would just dry the thing out (you are heading into the dry season) and look for suspicious openings in your structure.

      Thanks for the reply C5dad. The kit was sealed with 50 lbs of high temp waterproof mortar, 3" ceramic blanket, 3" of stucco and painted with exterior paint. The only think I can think of is the water came in the chimney, but it has a cap so it shouldn't.

        "Do I have this to look forward to every spring?"

        Not to that extent.

        One thing to think about is your slab. If there is any depression or "bath tubbing" of the slab the water that has accumulated there may some effort/time to remove. This is not uncommon.

        One solution may be to drill 2 or three 3/8 inch hole up through the structural slab into the insulation layer for drainage.
