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.

  • Construction of Chimney question

    I need to have a chimney that goes up above the level of an adjoining building. I'm actually thinking of building my oven into the side of that building, a former garage, that is concrete block construction. I want to use a masonry chimney, and have a question. A chimney consists of a tile liner, say 8 by 8 inch interior size, and some sort of masonry exterior, most easily those hollow concrete squares. My question is: I know the tiles are set together with a minimum amount of refractory mortar, but how is the interior of the chimney attached to the masonry surround? Is it filled with mortar? Regular or refractory? Is the weight of ten feet of masonry chimney going to crush my oven entry arch?

    I figure it's better to ask a dumb question than make a dumb mistake. Any thoughts?
