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.

  • Is a flue liner necessary?

    I understand the role a flue liner plays in a residential fireplace chimney, but is it really necessary in an outdoor setting? I was thinking of just building a double wall chimney and capping it on the top with a piece of slate. Any advice?

    That will work fine, it's just that a couple of lengths of 8" flue tile are MUCH cheaper than what you could build with firebrick.

      You dont need firebricks for a chimney, most chimneys are built using normal bricks.

        You do not need firebrick, but if you are going by code, you need flue liner. It is faster and cheaper to use flue than to build a double wall chimney, anyway. For my BBQ pit chimney, I just built single wythe brick, but the heat going up an oven flue is much higher, plus all the joints will make creosote buildup an issue.

          Md's question had nothing to do with the type of brick - just a way to get it done. Dude, your approach to the vent will work. I would go with Davids suggestion of using a clay liner. They are inexpensive and readily available - worked for me.

              OK, I'll stop bucking the system now Clay flue liner it is.

                Okay - I cannot get 8x8 square clay flue tile in may area. There's only 8" round clay flue tile - and the next smallest is 8x13 oval.

                The 8" round is outside diameter - giving me an inside diameter of around 6".

                Is that going to work?

                I'd note that the 8" square clay flue liners from Superior are also outside dimensions . . .

                thanks -

                  Round is better, 8" round should be fine. The (very rough) rule of thumb is 10% of the opening is the size flue required. Bigger is generally better, espcially with square or rectangular flues. So if you have an 18"wX16"H opening (288 SqIn), then a flue in the neighborhood of 28-30 SqIn is good. A 6" flue gives you 28.27 SqIn, so it should work just fine.

                    My entry arch is 12" high, 19" wide. Here it is:



                    I figure I've got a 2.5" x 19" rectangle at the bottom of the arch, or 47.5 sq.in. and roughly 1/2 of a 9.5" radius circle, or 283.5 sq.in. / 2 = 141.75 sq.in. Total = 47.5 + 141.75 = 189.25 sq.in. opening in my entry arch. My 6" inside dia. clay flue is 28.27 sq.in which gives me a flue of approximately 15% of my oven opening. Sounds like that's more than sufficient . . .

                    Time to press on.
