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 just finished curing my oven and put a layer of blanket insulation over it. It reached perfect temps. I placed a tarp over it and thought it was secured, but a thunderstorm in my area thought differently. I know my blanket is probably trashed (Luckily I have more), but do I have to cure my oven again? I think my ceramic board on the bottom should be all right shouldn't it? I remember reading that James had intentionally left FB Board out in the rain and it has held up just fine. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

    My board was wet from a hole in the tarp and continued firing eventually dried it out with no damage...I would'nt doubt that the blanket would be the same...

      The ceramic fire blanket and board will dry out. No need to replace. Due to the storm, if the fire bricks were saturated with water, I would recommend going through the curing process again. After all the hard work, you want to do everything possible to avoid cracks in the dome. If you are in a rush, you can forego further curing. Cracks tend to naturally appear anyways. Not a big deal.

      Depending on how wet the insulation is, you may have trouble getting the oven to temp until the ceramic fibre material and bricks dry out some.

        Thanks for the reply. I cured it all over again and I'm good to go!
