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.

  • Duratech anchor plate question

    Are single walled stove pipes compatible with anchor plates designed for Class A pipes?

    I'm using a single walled 6" black stove pipe and need an anchor plate over the vent.

    Thanks!!

    I suppose you could call simpson or one of the simpson retailers and ask. My first bet is that it's incompatable for liability sake.

      Hi Chris. You're probably right about that. I'll send them email and ask.
      I think they're not compatible. I'll think of something else.
      The chimney needs to be about 8 ft high and wanted to save $$ by using single walled pipes, starting from the vent up.

      Thanks,
      George

        I fought with the Dura$ issue as well. I finally decided that after spending all of the time and effort on the oven, how much more was the Dura$ chimney over what a unknown chimney would cost and the Dura$ chimney parts all work together. I have to say that I'm amazed by the efficency of the chimney, I don't have any problem holding my hand on the exterior while a full fire is running. Some of this is due to cool air mixing with the hot gases in the entry and flue, but it's still amazing to have the chimney exterior only warm to the touch.

          Thanks Chris. I guess I'll decide what to do once the dome and vent areas are complete.


          Edit: While looking at my build this morning I realized that I really don't have room for an anchor plate due to my oven design.
          I'll probably end up casting my own vent for the 6" pipe.
